    Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell continue to shoot Mission Impossible 7 in Rome

    Tom Cruise smartens up in a waistcoat and tie as he and co-star Hayley Atwell continue to shoot scenes for Mission Impossible 7 in Rome

    He’s been completing scenes for Mission Impossible 7 at breakneck speed in Italy, after being forced to pause production amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    And Tom Cruise, 58, was back to work on Sunday, as he joined his co-star Hayley Atwell, 38, to continue shooting car scenes at Fori Imperial in Rome. 

    The Hollywood actor, who plays Ethan Hunt in the film series, cut a dapper figure as he stepped before cameras wearing a grey waistcoat with a crisp white shirt.

    The show must go on: Tom Cruise was spotted shooting scenes for Mission Impossible 7 at Fori Imperial in Rome on Sunday

    Adhering to guidelines by donning a face mask in between takes, Tom completed his smart ensemble with matching trousers and a striped tie.

    During the shoot, the star was seen acting inside a small yellow car alongside Hayley, leaning towards her as they chatted away inside the cramped space. 

    While it appeared that they had control of the car while sitting at the wheel, a stunt driver was attached to the front of the vehicle, navigating them through the streets.

    In scenes shot the previous day, the pair were in a black car with Hayley behind the wheel and Tom holding onto the dash for some of the shoot.

    Although in the driver’s seat, the vehicle was controlled by a stunt driver who could be seen sitting in the back as Tom and the Agent Carter star got into character.

    The shoot is understood to be nearing completion after a turbulent filming schedule caused by the ongoing coronavirus health crisis.

    In October, Tom held crisis talks with director Christopher McQuarrie after 12 people on set reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

    Health chiefs were said to be tracing the contacts of those who tested positive after filming was suspended, dashing hopes it was an isolated case.

    It appeared to be yet another blow for the action movie franchise after filming was suspended earlier this year during the first European wave of coronavirus when cases rose sharply in Italy. 

    The actor and the director, who worked together on previous Mission Impossible movies and Jack Reacher, were deep in conversation at their luxury base in the city, days after the situation came to light, but filming has now been allowed to continue with production restarting in recent weeks.

    In October, The Sun reported 150 extras for the film were informed they were not to come in to shoot scenes that were on the filming schedule for the evening.

    While no official reason was given for the sudden decision, it was claimed a coronavirus test had come back positive from the production so filming needed to be suspended temporarily. 

    A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘There are about 150 extras involved in the filming and late on Thursday they were all told not to turn up for work and they would be notified when they would be allowed back on set. 

    ‘No official reason has been given but it’s feared it’s down to COVID and this will be the second time the production has been hit because of the virus.’ 

    Crew also urged members of the public to remain socially distanced from one another as they waited to see the stars, while Tom and director Christopher are also said to have made the request.

    MailOnline contacted Paramount Pictures and Tom Cruise’s representatives for comment at the time.

    Earlier this year, filming for the upcoming action movie was halted in Italy after cases of novel coronavirus rose sharply.

    The crew and actors headed to Norway to film instead, before returning to the Italian capital to continue with scenes once it was safe to do so.

    It was reported this summer that Hollywood legend Tom hired a £500,000 ship for the film’s crew in Norway to avoid any coronavirus-related delays.

    The filming had already been delayed for months after COVID-19 spread across Italy, where production had been based in March, leading the release date to be pushed back to November 2021. ‘They are terrified of further delays. Tom is determined not to see any more hold-ups.

     The studio believes it will keep everyone safe and get this shoot wrapped up’, a source told The Sun earlier this summer.

    It was recently claimed that Tom was ‘exempt from Norway’s quarantine rules’ as he restarted filming in the Scandinavian country.   

    The media personality revealed how ‘excited’ he was to start shooting the latest instalment of the franchise in a phone call with Norway’s Minister of Culture Abid Raja. 

    Mission Impossible 7 will be released on November 19, 2021.
