MOVIES – This is a scene the people of Stoney Middleton will never forget. This village in central England was the setting for the filming of “Mission Impossible 7” on Friday August 20, as you can see in our video at the top of the article.

A steam locomotive was thrown off the top of a cliff for the purpose of the blockbuster directed by Christopher McQuarrie. On this occasion, a fictitious railway line was installed near the old quarry in the village.

It required long months of work. A construction documented on Facebook by a local photographer who calls himself “Villager Jim”.

“I still can’t believe that in a few weeks a train is going to go down this track and throw itself off a cliff for the new movie ‘Mission Impossible’, what a moment that will be!”

The production obviously had no room for error and the scene was filmed in one take from a helicopter hovering low over the locomotive.

On social media, the people of Stoney Middleton shared videos from different angles of this extraordinary shoot. Some have noticed that Tom Cruise was very present on the scene.

“Tom Cruise gets in the golf carts after hitting the set, how cool is that? And that black helicopter goes perfectly with her outfit. ”

Fans of the action and espionage franchise that began in 1996 will have to wait a few more months before seeing this scene in theaters. The filming of the 7th opus, with Hayley Atwell (“Avengers Endgame”), Simon Pegg (“Brothers in arms”, “Ready Player One”) and Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown”) has been delayed due to the pandemic of Covid-19. Originally scheduled for November 2021, the film should be released in France in theaters in spring 2022.
