It’s not exactly shouting “Show me the money!” or saying “I feel the need for speed,” but Tom Cruise delivered some memorable lines recently on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7.”

The only bombs dropping in his movie are Cruise’s f-bombs. Cruise went ballistic on two set workers for standing within 3 feet of each other, breaking COVID-19 protocols.

“If I see you doing it again, you’re (expletive) gone,” Cruise said on an audiotape received by The Sun. “And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it – and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever (expletive) do it again!”

The Sun called him “Tom Curse” for his profanity-laced tirade, but it is in line with how Cruise has been vigilant about keeping the set safe, knowing how a shutdown would negatively affect workers.

The two crew members standing at a computer screen were among 50 staff members working on the movie at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, 25 miles northwest of London.

“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us,” Cruise, 58, continued with the rant. “… We are creating thousands of jobs, you mother (expletive). That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their (expletive) homes because our industry is shut down. …

“We are not shutting this (expletive) movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re (expletive) gone.”

The movie’s production was delayed previously for COVID-19 reasons during shooting across Europe. Twelve people on its set in Italy tested positive for coronavirus, according to The Sun.

Shooting returned two weeks ago to the UK, where Cruise has been pictured wearing a mask. The Sun reported that Cruise paid $676,000 to house the cast and crew in isolation on a cruise ship.

“Mission: Impossible 7” is set for release in November 2021, and rest assured that Cruise will see to it.
