Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt on the film set of Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8. And it was “benvenuti a Roma” as the film crew set up on the streets of the Eternal City.
Mission Impossible 7 AND 8 Filming In Roma, Italia
First, our snappers spotted a car chase stunt on the cobbled streets with the Italian Polizia chasing a black BMW without any doors on screeching round the tight corners.

Then in another scene Tom was spotted with a driving wheel in his hand looking around before a grey van stopped near him and Simon Pegg’s character, Benji Dunn, opened the back doors and Ethan Hunt hopped in.

The side of the van had a sign that read “Pitture Edili Elli Giordand” which means in English “Elli Giordand – Building Painter”.
Dressed in a smart waistcoat and suit pants, Tom was seen directing on the set with his sleeves rolled up and fashioning a smart short haircut.
All the crew were wearing masks due to the coronavirus pandemic with only the actors and extras not wearing them. You can see another extra car stunt from M:I 7 and M:I 8 on our TikTok channel below:

The latest film in the franchise also stars Hayley Atwell and the long-running Vinge Rhames with Nicholas Hoult set to star in the eight installment. Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 are shooting back-to-back so it is hard to say which scenes in Rome are for either film.
Mission: Impossible Trivia: Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames are the only two actors who have starred in every single Mission: Impossible film.
