Tom Cruise has a reputation for doing his own dangerous stunts and putting his life at risk for our entertainment. In the Mission Impossible franchise, we’ve seen him ride a motorcycle through oncoming traffic in Paris, hang off a plane, and scale the world’s tallest building. Stunt drivers replace the actors in most Hollywood car chases but Tom Cruise does his own stunt driving.
In 2018’s ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout,’ Cruise got behind the wheel of a classic BMW 5 Series in one of the most visceral car chases since 1998’s ‘Ronin’. BMW’s longstanding partnership with the action movie franchise will continue, as the new BMW M5 will be the star car in Mission Impossible 7.
Filming for the latest installment has resumed in Rome, which will be the location of a car chase scene in the film. Behind-the-scenes footage shared online shows Tom Cruise tearing through the streets of Rome in a black BMW M5 with an army of Italian police cars and bikes in pursuit.
