Tom Holland disputes Tom Cruise’s claim that M: I7 rebooted the Hollywood film industry after the pandemic, saying Uncharted got there first.
Tom Holland took issue with Tom Cruise’s claim that Mission: Impossible 7 rebooted the Hollywood film industry after the first wave of the pandemic, claiming that Unexplored started shooting before M: I7. Holland to play Nathan Drake in long-awaited film adaptation of video game series Unexplored. Alongside Mark Whalberg’s fortune hunter and veteran mentor Sully, the film will see the couple set out on a search for lost treasure and Drake’s lost brother. The role sees Holland continuing his trend of taking on lead roles in Hollywood action movies, after 2021 Chaos march and the recent MCU juggernaut Spider-Man: No Path Home.
Another action movie coming in 2022, Mission: Impossible 7 sees Tom Cruise return as IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The film will reunite Cruise with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie, alongside his comrades Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and Rebecca Ferguson. M: I7, for which Cruise is also a producer, was one of the first Hollywood films to go into production after the COVID pandemic in 2020. Although, like many other films, production has stopped and started due to COVID-related health and safety concerns, with the filming on Mission: Impossible 7 finally ended in September 2021, more than a year and a half after the cameras started rolling.
As reported by Digital Spy, Holland said Total movie that while Cruise claimed to have brought back the film industry with the Mission: Impossible 7 shoot, the megastar had “forgot that little movie called Uncharted”. Unexplored, Holland claims, had started filming four months before production on M: I7 spear. No matter who shot first, Holland reveals he’s “very proudOf their work on the film. Read the full quote below:
“I really believe in the project. I believe in the work we have done. I am very proud of how hard everyone has worked. We also made this film during the height of COVID. I know Tom Cruise likes to say he brought the film industry back, but he forgot about that little movie called Uncharted that was filming four months before him. So, I’m just really proud of what we’ve done. And if we had the chance to do it again, that would be really exciting. We’ve only scratched the surface of what Drake and Sully can do. “
While audiences will have to wait until the film’s release to judge whether Holland is right to be proud of the way the film turned out, finishing a shoot during COVID is something to be rightly proud of. The struggles of M: I7the shoots of are well documented, embodied in the leaked recording of Cruise Mission: Impossible 7 ranting, berating crew members for not following COVID protocols. M: I7 Actor Cary Ewles even revealed that McQuarrie had to direct scenes from his home due to COVID contact tracing rules. Holland calls Cruise for claiming M: I7 the resumption of filming seems like a slight good-humored joke at first, however.
While all filming was put on hold for much of the first wave of the pandemic, production quickly returned, with a production boom in the summer of 2020. In Holland’s case, filming may have gone wrong. -be restarted too quickly, the actor only having a three-day break. between the packaging Unexplored and starting No way home resumes. A grueling schedule no doubt, but the young Hollande will have a way to go before he can match Cruise’s production and engagement in some daring stunts. Judging by Cruise’s response to crew members not following COVID protocols, I hope the Hollywood veteran doesn’t respond too harshly to Holland’s comments.
