Tom was heard saying: “Hi everyone, wish I could be with you guys, sorry for all the extra noise. As you can see, I’m currently filming the latest installment of Mission: Impossible.
“Right now we are above the beautiful Blyde River Canyon in stunning South Africa and we are shooting this film for the big screen for audiences to see in local cinemas.”
It comes after Tom, who plays Ethan Hunt in the franchise, reportedly apologized for ruining a couple’s hike while filming the scene.
Jason and Sarah Haygarth were walking nearby when they spotted the production team’s helicopter.

“Towards the end of the hike, the last peak, we start to see helicopters coming up a ravine and dropping people off the top… We thought that didn’t seem right,” Jason told Extra.
“We found out the people, those were the cameramen. When we reached the top, we were stopped by a member of the production team and said, “You can’t go. We’re going to land the chopper on top…” So we took a selfie,” he said.
After the helicopters landed, the pair continued on their way where they met Tom strapping on a paraglider.
“I could tell right away it was him,” Sarah said. “When we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible being filmed… but I was expecting a stunt double.”
“First he apologized for the noise,” Jason added. “Sorry guys, I know we spoiled your walk with the noise.” And then he said, “I like your dog.”
“We asked, ‘What are you doing? Then he said, “I’m going to jump off.” I was like, “You gonna do what?”
‘He said, ‘I’m going to jump off.’ Just before he jumped off, he said, “See you then! Hope it goes well,” and we said, “Good luck, Tom.”
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has a current release date of July 14, 2023.
The film, the seventh in the franchise, will see Tom alongside Hayley Atwell, Hot Fuzz star Simon Pegg, Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson and The Princess Bride star Cary Elwes.
