Say it faster
Tom Cruise has hired an old cruise ship for the Mission Impossible cast and crew. He has spent 600,000 to provide a “floating village” in a bid to avoid further Covid production delays. Filming stopped in Venice in February and since it’s a 3 billion dollar franchise, everyone wants to get back to work. Tom is footing the bill himself and every precaution is being taken to ensure the safety of crew (and to ensure a wrap on filming).
And in other showbiz news:
The Wanted singer Max George has reportedly signed up to Strictly Come Dancing and 'joins' stars Bill Bailey and Caroline Quentin for the upcoming series in October.
The BBC wanted a 'hunk' as part of the line-up and hopes that Max, 31, will 'bring in a younger audience to the show'.
Max’s former bandmate Jay McGuinness won Strictly in 2015 and tonight, he will star alongside Kimberley Walsh in Sleepless, in the first night back in the West End since Covid closed all the shows down.
