The British publication The Sun reports that the filming of “Mission: Impossible 7” has been suspended due to a failure during the execution of a complex stunt. The stunt took several weeks to prepare and cost two million pounds. The stuntman had to jump on a motorcycle from a high ramp. According to the source:
The idea was for the stuntman to land on huge pillows filled with cardboard boxes to cushion the impact, and the bike would crash a few meters away. But all factors were not calculated. Heat and tire friction caused the bike to burn cardboard when the bike crashed. The smoke from the fire was so strong that the nearest RAF airfield had to be closed. Luckily no one was hurt, but it’s a complete disaster, not to mention it was a very expensive stunt. Tom is very upset. Everyone wants to work without delay.
The Oxfordshire Fire Department dispatched five fire brigades to the set to extinguish the fire. And they managed to cope with the fire. According to insiders, the set is closed until the reasons for the incident are clarified.
