The Hollywood star has been credited as the first actor to bring a major film shoot to the UAE. His 2011 blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was filmed in Dubai, with scenes in the desert, and an iconic scene in which Cruise scales the Burj Khalifa.
While in the UAE for his latest shoot, Cruise met with top media executive Ahmad Al Shaikh. According to Al Shaikh, the pair discussed “the best ways of making the UAE a hotspot and a magnet for global filmmaking”.
Written, directed and produced by Christopher McQuarrie, Mission: Impossible – Fallout also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris.
The film is scheduled for release in late July.
