Tom Cruise has been in Yorkshire and the Peak District filming for the new Mission: Impossible movie. The film star and crew were at the North York Moors shooting at Levisham Station as well as a quarry in Stoney Middleton.
The crew were also spotted filming in the Peak District in Debryshire early this week at Dalton Quarry in Stoney Middleton. Photographer Stefan Gallagher captured the image of a track running beyond the edge with a huge drop below.
The first image shows a railway track heading downhill and then off into the canyon which can only mean one thing in action movie terms. BOOOMMM.
The third image shows a huge drop into the quarry situated in the Peak District. We wonder what stunt Tom Cruise will be pulling off in the Peak District.
Director Chris McQuarrie took to Instagram to thank the locals. The Mission: Impossible director’s post read: “What would Mission be without a bit of local colour?
“Our sincerest thanks to North Yorkshire Moors Railway, the Office for Road and Rail, Eddie Draper, Riley’s & GB Rail Freight and, of course, the incredibly lovely and welcoming people of Levisham.
“We had an amazing week (and remarkably fair weather) in fabulous Yorkshire.
“We’ll be back for one last bit of mischief in short order.”
The last line in the caption hints that this may not be the last time Yorkshire folk are visited by the moviemakers with the director saying “we’ll be back for one last bit of mischief in short order.”
Cruise’s co-stars include Simon Pegg, Hayley Atwell and Jeremy Renner. Filming for Mission: Impossible 7 was delayed, but the film will now be released in May 2022.
