Even Tom Cruise is no match for mother nature, as evidenced by these reports that Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two had to pause production after its set was overrun by a herd of sheep.

According to reports out of England, filming of the eighth movie in the Mission: Impossible franchise had to be paused after “dozens” of sheep strolled through the production site in England’s Lake District.

The actor was seen admiring the large flock as he stood to the side to make way for the sheep passing through. Cruise was also captured mid-air attached to a blue parachute while filming a scene in the upcoming movie.

Cruise also recently had a run-in with Lake District vacationers. Adam Wheeler and Lucy Hinch were walking their Siberian Husky named “Blitz” when they stumbled upon Cruise and the movie set. According to the Northern Echo, Cruise “happily” posed for a picture with the couple before hopping back inside of a helicopter used on set. [via Fox News]

As mentioned above, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two will be the eighth in the famed action franchise and likely the first to star Tom Cruise, who is now 60 years old. The film is a direct sequel to Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, which is set to hit theaters in the United States on July 14, 2023.

In addition to Cruise, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One stars Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Ving Rhames, Henry Czerny, Simon Pegg, Frederick Schmidt, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham, Esai Morales, Rob Delaney, Charles Parnell, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, and Cary Elwes.
