Mission Possible: Tom Cruise Goes Location Scouting in Drakensberg
American filmmaker Tom Cruise continues his shooting mission to South Africa by heading to KwaZulu-Natal on Monday. He’s said to be scouting locations for shooting the film Mission Impossible.
He’d earlier spent time in Hoedspruit, Limpopo, where he shot a few scenes for Mission Impossible.
In his next shooting itinerary in Kwa-Zulu Natal, he’d reportedly arrived at the Ladysmith Airfield with six helicopters and three planes.
He was said to have interacted with the locals and stopped to greet bystanders as well. He also posed for photographs with some of the locals.
It appears like a love story is brewing between the 59-year-old actor and the Rainbow Nation, as he noted that he’s excited to be in South Africa.
He also admitted that he’s always wanted to film in the country, adding that it would be nice to live in the country permanently.
By the way, podcast host MacG and his associated Sol Phenduka recently narrated how an eager fan misled them into believing he could set up an interview between them and the American. They only realized they were scammed when they got there, and the American was nowhere to be found
Mission Impossible is expected to be released on July 14, 2023
