Tom Cruise films in Abu Dhabi

UAE
GDN Online Desk


Tom Cruise is currently been filming in Abu Dhabi. The actor tweeted his appreciation for the city and says that he is still in the middle of filming in the UAE.

He also did a helicopter ride and the landing officer Wali Khan posted a photo with the star. Wali told the Gulf News, that the Mission Impossible star was not filming in the helicopter and was only there as a customer.

This is not the first time Tom has filmed in the UAE. His Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol has a breathtaking sequence shot at the Burj Khalifa.

Meanwhile, his new Mission Impossible Fallout releases July 27.

Tom was in Dubai in February as well and was hosted by a Dubai celebrity who posted the photo on Twitter.

Director Christopher McQuarrie suggested that the movie’s main unit had wrapped filming on February 22, but that a splinter unit, which often shoots at a different location, was still shooting.

“3000 setups, 13 helicopters, 6 pregnancies, 5 hiatuses, 4 weeks of aerial photography, 3 continents, 2 winters, 1 broken ankle,” McQuarrie posted to Instagram. “[M]ain unit...That’s a wrap. Splinter unit, mount up. Time to shoot the stunt.”
