Maryam Eid AlMheiri, CEO of Media Zone Authority Abu Dhabi and ‘twofour54’ said film would benefit from incredible incentives offered on production.
“Through the combined efforts of Abu Dhabi Film Commission (ADFC) and twofour54, we have attracted yet another major Hollywood production to our Emirate thanks to the incredible incentives we are able to offer, such as incredible locations, talented media professionals, world-class facilities and the generous 30% rebate on production spend,” AlMheiri said.
“Paramount Pictures is one of the world’s most renowned studios and ‘twofour54’ has supported their team throughout the shoot, ensuring that the process has been seamless. “We expect to welcome many more to the capital for content creators in the future,” she added.
Abu Dhabi film Commission on their Instagram account confirmed Hollywood star was present in Abu Dhabi for the shoot of ‘Mission Impossible- Fallout’. They posted a picture of Tom Cruise standing in front of a UAE Airforce carrier.
The trailer of ‘Mission Impossible- Fallout’ has garnered massive attention on social media since its release last month. Tom Cruise risked his life while performing a brand new stunt for a two-minute scene in the movie. Tom Cruise had to jump 25,000 feet at 200 miles per hour from a helicopter within two minutes that required him 200 hours of prior training to become an actual helicopter pilot so as to not to cheat the audiences.
Since they were shooting at dusk they only have three minutes of light to get the shot and therefore can only try it once in a day. Tom Cruise had to wear a proto-spacesuit to ensure an adequate amount of oxygen during the jump.
