Tom Cruise is reportedly in a rush to finish filming Mission: Impossible 7 in only three weeks.

Thanks to several delays to the shooting schedule brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, there is said to be only 21 days left to get the film completed.

A source told The Sun: ‘Mission: Impossible has been hit by so many delays, there is now a huge pressure to finish on time.

‘Tom and the team are tearing their hair out. Some of the crew are agency contractors and are already booked to move on to new projects.

‘Without them, Tom will be left scratching around for replacements. And if that wasn’t enough, he has his own scheduling conflicts.’

The source added that as Top Gun 2 is released in November, Tom will have to begin promotional work for the movie soon.

While the majority of the next Mission: Impossible is already filmed, there is said to be one final big scene to do that involved a speeding train being driven over the edge of a cliff.
