The controversy over the shooting
It should be noted that during the filming the production of the film was the subject of various controversies in the various countries where it stopped; for example in Norway local unions protested against production for leasing cruise ships from a company with underpaid crews, while in a small town in Poland there were disputes over a bridge local history that could have been skipped; Regarding the bridge issue, Christopher McQuarrie later clarified the issue in an interview with Empire Magazine in which the director said that at the start of pre-production, the “Mission: Impossible” team had designed an action sequence “which involves a bridge over a body of water, ideally one that could be partially destroyed.” According to the director, it was Poland who showed interest in the production by offering to use the broken bridge McQuarrie writes that Poland was trying to clean up the area to promote tourism and needed to upgrade the bridge, meaning part of it had to be destroyed to make way for the upgrades.
Last week, the press announced that the producers of “Mission: Impossible” had requested permission to demolish a 111-year-old bridge in Poland and that in doing so we were destroying some of this country’s wonderful heritage in Poland. entertainment name. I have read many inaccurate stories in which I am named that I normally ignore, but in this case I felt it was important to personally clarify some misinterpretations of our intentions, starting with this: there was never a plan that involved blowing up a 111 year old protected monument… The production of “Mission: Impossible” was limited to destroying the already crumbling parts of the bridge that needed to be rebuilt, and not the original stone pillars.
According to McQuarrie, the controversy surrounding the bridge was fueled by an individual who “claimed he was owed production work for which we felt he was not sufficiently qualified.” This person allegedly harassed the crew members on social networks and then “twisted our intentions” regarding the bridge and “hid his personal reasons for wanting to penalize us”. In short, this individual manipulated people’s emotional reaction in a move that has now undermined our ambitions to bring our production to Poland. We would never dream, under any circumstances, of intentionally causing damage to the cultural or historical monuments we visit and we will work to protect these monuments that we represent. Respecting and celebrating the places we visit is our first directive. No one involved in the production ever asked permission to destroy a historically significant monument in Poland”.
Oh hello everyone, I didn’t see you. This is Norway in all its glory. #setlife #missionimpossible yes, I’m standing on top of a train. #appropriate
