Tom Cruise’s BMW Stolen While Filming Mission: Impossible 7

Oh, the irony. Tom Cruise may have to employ some real-life spy skills after his BMW X7 was reportedly stolen whilst filming the latest instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. According to The Sun, the thieves used a scanner to clone the signal from the luxury car’s keyless ignition fob that was parked outside Birmingham hotel. The MI-styled heist resulted in the gang escaping with thousands of dollars worth of the actor’s luggage and possessions.

The authorities have supposedly recovered the car in question, but the thugs escaped with the actor’s belongings. “It’s since been recovered by police because it was equipped with an electronic tracking device, but everything inside it had gone,” a source told The Sun. “It’s a huge embarrassment for the security team, and the guy who had been driving it was hopping mad — but not as mad as Tom!”.

Known for his temper, Cruise made headlines last year after audio leaked of the actor giving his crew a spray on the MI set for breaking COVID-19 protocol. “If I see you do it again, you’re f—ing gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it.”, Cruise could be heard screaming.

Cruise was in Birmingham to shoot a scene for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, with the city’s railway station being transformed to portray Abu Dhabi Airport. The recent robbery adds to a wild list of filming complications, with  COVID-19 and a near-fatal stunt on a train forcing the released date to be pushed back.

Initially set to release in July 2021, Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 7 will drop in May 2022.
