The recordings of the new Mission: Impossible can continue in Norway. The Norwegian government made an exception in the corona policy on Friday for foreign films, so that all film employees do not have to be quarantined on arrival.
The film crew must be tested for COVID-19 every 48 hours after arrival in Norway. They are also not allowed to have any contact with the Norwegian population during the recording. The film crew must also always have medical personnel with them.
The filming of the seventh and eighth films of Mission: Impossible were shut down in Venice, Italy, in February due to the corona pandemic. Tom Cruise is the main character in both films, which will be released in November 2021 and November 2022, as secret agent Ethan Hunt.
The Norwegian Ministry of Culture says that an exception has been specifically made for this Mission: Impossible, because the film had already received a grant of 50 million Norwegian crowns (less than 5 million euros) from the Norwegian Film Institute to keep the recordings in the country. They are expected to start in the fall of this year.
