Mission Impossible 7: Tom Cruise and ‘girlfriend’ Hayley Atwell seen filming in Yorkshire


Rumoured couple Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell swapped Hollywood sets for the rolling Yorkshire Moors as they continued shooting Mission Impossible 7 on Monday.  

The stars, who are said to be dating, are filming on a private railway near Pickering, North Yorkshire, to the shock of locals who saw him landing and taking off in his helicopter – despite previous claims that filming had wrapped.

Their outing, where the apparent couple appeared to be filming scenes on a train, comes four months after romance rumours began, with sources saying at the time that filming ‘brought them closer’.

Drama: Tom and Hayley star opposite Vanessa Kirby and Rebecca Ferguson in the movie where the plot for the latest adventure of Tom's character Ethan Hunt has been kept firmly under wraps

Hey there! Rumoured couple Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell swapped Hollywood sets for the rolling Yorkshire Moors as they continued shooting Mission Impossible 7 on Monday 

The Hollywood heartthrob’s sudden appearance in Pickering caused quite a stir among residents. Sarah Jones, who runs Pear Tree House B&B and Holiday Cottage in the town, encountered Tom as she was out walking her dogs.

She posted on Facebook: ‘We were walking the dogs today and bumped into Tom Cruise. Not only do we love Pickering and our stunning countryside but it was chosen for filming Tom’s new film.’

The duo were also spotted by Gary Davies and Cheryl-ann Taylor, who run a design studio near Levisham Station on the moors.

They posted: ‘How amazing to walk down to the beautiful Levisham Station, a short walk from the Design Farm Studio and see him and the crew rehearsing a stunt for the new Mission Impossible movie on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. 

‘At the end of the day he gave us a wave, said ‘see ya tomorrow!’ to the kids then jumped into his helicopter and flew it away himself like an absolute boss! An action hero in every sense of the word!’ 

The outing is the first for the duo since it was claimed that filming brought them ‘even closer’, as they are said to have become ‘fairly inseparable’ after they ‘hit it off from day one’.

Woah! It was a turn up for the books in the rural area

The new ‘couple’ were spotted standing on scaffolding beside a train, which they appeared using to be shooting a scene together.

Tom hasn’t had a high-profile romance since his divorce from ex-wife Katie Holmes, whom he split from in 2012  and shares daughter Suri, 15. 

Prior to this, Tom was married to Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001. After their split, he retained custody of their two adopted children Connor, 26, and Isabella, 28, who had been raised in the Church of Scientology. 

Meanwhile Hayley is said to have split from her English doctor ex earlier this year. 

A source told The Sun back in December: ‘Tom and Hayley hit it off from day one.

‘Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them even closer and they’ve become fairly inseparable.

‘They’ve been meeting up after hours, and she’s been to his London pad. They get on brilliantly, and both seem very happy.’

MailOnline contacted both Tom and Hayley’s representatives for comment at the time.

Mission: Impossible 7 is scheduled to be released later this year. 

It was claimed in February that location filming on Mission: Impossible 7 has wrapped after a marathon global schedule interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the time, Christopher McQuarrie posted that production had finished in Abu Dhabi and he was heading ‘back to London for a few finishing touches.’

The delays due to the pandemic, however, mean that Tom’s plan to go straight into filming an eighth Mission: Impossible movie have had to be shelved, Deadline.com reported.

But before that, Cruise has another major movie opening – his sequel to Top Gun. Top Gun: Maverick is opening in theatres on July 2 and Cruise will be required to be available to promote the movie worldwide.

That means he can’t start making the eighth movie in the Mission: Impossible franchise straight away as he had wanted to.

The eighth film has been listed by Paramount for release in November 4, 2022 but it looks likely that that date will now have to be pushed back.

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 was supposed to start in Italy in February 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed it until July 2020.

Filming began in the UK, moved to Norway and then back to Italy where it ground to a halt once again after 12 crew members tested positive for the coronavirus.
