Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible could be headed for NZ


With the news that Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible 6 will be shooting here in New Zealand some time in 2017, here are five times Tom Cruise put his life on the line to entertain hus:

Mission: Impossible 6 – starring Tom Cruise – could well be headed for New Zealand.

New Zealand Film Commission's head of international screen attraction Philippa Mossman has confirmed that the film's producers have been in contact with a view to shooting some scenes here. While she wouldn't be drawn on exact locations, Mossman said the NZFC had been assisting them.

Earlier, the chief executive of the film's production company, Skydance Media, told Collider the movie would shoot in New Zealand.

Tom Cruise might visit New Zealand later this year to film Mission: Impossible 6.

David Ellison revealed filming on the sequel begins on April 10, taking in Paris, London, and our very own corner of the world.

He also said the film would see Cruise undertake the most challenging stunt of his career – one which he'd spent the past year training for.

Ellison promised the stunt would top the climax of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which saw Cruise hanging from the side of a plane as it took off from the runway.

Filming on Mission: Impossible 6 was reportedly delayed last year after Cruise demanded more money for the film.

Mission: Impossible 6 will star Henry Cavill alongside Cruise, and is written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

If Cruise shoots in New Zealand for the film, it won't be his first time here – he also starred in the Taranaki-shot The Last Samurai, which was released in 2003.
