Mission: Impossible: Tom Cruise spotted filming at Birmingham railway station | Ents & Arts News
Tom Cruise has been spotted filming scenes for Mission: Impossible 7 at Birmingham’s New Street Station.
The station has been transformed to look like an airport for camera crews, with the Hollywood actor seen in a dark suit and sunglasses.
Airport signs had been hung up in the station, which was opened in 2015 following a £750 million refurbishment.
Crowds gathered in a bid to glimpse the actor, seen filming in front of a row of shops above the station’s main concourse.
Cruise, 59, who is reprising his role as Ethan Hunt in the latest instalment of the action series, has been spotted in and around the city in recent days.
Birmingham Transport Police shared an image of the masked movie star alongside two officers, with the message: “I promise you, this isn’t photoshopped.”
Over the weekend he was pictured at Indian restaurant Asha, with the venue saying he enjoyed his chicken tikka masala so much he ordered the curry for a second time after finishing the first serving.
He has also reportedly made use of a family’s garden in nearby Warwickshire as he flew into the region by helicopter while Coventry airport was temporarily closed.
In April, pictures emerged of a train track set up at a quarry in Derbyshire – said to be attached to the film – with a track running towards a precipice at an open pit near Stoney Middleton in the Peak District.
Cruise has also enjoyed himself at Wimbledon, Euro 2020 and at Silverstone for the Formula One this summer.
