Filming on the latest Mission: Impossible movies will be able to resume in England as the Government looks to exempt high-end stars from quarantine.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden is said to have spoken to the franchise’s 58-year-old star Tom Cruise earlier in the week about how the production will be able to continue.

Both Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 – which feature American actor and producer Cruise – are being shot at the Warner Bros Studios Leavesden in Hertfordshire.

The Government said it will publish guidance this week allowing “small numbers” of essential cast and crew to travel to the UK without having to quarantine for 14 days.

Exempted individuals will instead have to live and work in controlled “bubbled” environments – such as filming locations – for the same period of time.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “The world’s biggest blockbusters and high-end TV shows are made in Britain.

“Our creativity, expertise and highly successful tax reliefs for our screen industries means that we are an in demand location that in turn delivers a great return for our economy.

“We want the industry to bounce back and exempting small numbers of essential cast and crew from quarantine is part of our continued commitment to getting cameras rolling safely again.”
