DUM DUM, doo doo DUM DUM! Attention all "Mission: Impossible" moviegoers and Tom Cruise sweethearts! The Hollywood heartthrob has been spotted in stunning South Africa, and let's just say things are about to get a little more exciting around these neck of the woods…
The Countdown Is Not Helping
Yes, you heard that right – Tom Cruise is in South Africa, and he's not just here to soak up the sun, go on a Big 5 safari, and enjoy a few braais (that's barbecues for the non-South Africans out there). No, Cruise is in town to film the latest instalment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, and let's just say the stakes are high (as per usual).
Red light! Green light!
But don't just take our word for it – locals have been spotting Cruise all over the place. According to social media, (in true “spy” fashion) Cruise landed his helicopter at the Killarney Country Club in Johannesburg earlier this month. Then, Twitter user @Blademale, also shared a photo and short video of Tom Cruise driving through KwaZulu-Natal, which they captured while he passed by – an unexpected road trip surprise for sure!
Make It Count
As filming gets underway, fans can expect to see more of Cruise in South Africa as he takes on the role of Ethan Hunt, the main character in the "Mission: Impossible" series. Whether he's scaling the towering heights of Table Mountain or navigating the bustling streets of Cape Town, Cruise is sure to make the most of his time in our beautiful country as he brings the latest instalment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise to life.
If I Let You Know Where I'm Going, I Won't Be On Holiday
