The 58-year-old actor plans to move production for his film “Mission: Impossible 7” after spending millions to move everything to former top secret tank design base Longcross in Surrey amid the pandemic, according to The Sun in a piece published Monday.

Shortly after the clip surfaced, five members of the film crew reportedly quit.
Earlier this year, production on the highly anticipated film was put on hold twice in Italy due to the coronavirus outbreak, per the report.
Originally set to hit theaters July 23, 2021, the highly anticipated movie will now reportedly come out Nov. 19, 2021, according to IMDB.
