Tom Cruise granted permission to film in U.K. Parliament - report

Tom Cruise will shoot scenes for the next installment of Mission: Impossible inside Britain's historic Houses of Parliament, according to a U.K. report.

The actor has reportedly been granted permission to shoot the fifth installment of the action franchise inside the home of British politics, the House of Commons, where Members of Parliament (MPs) gather.


A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "M:I 5 will feature numerous well-known locations in London but the Houses of Parliament is clearly the biggest coup... The writers are excited about what stunts they could pull off inside the Commons."


The news comes shortly after Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan's new movie Suffragette became the first commercial feature film ever to be shot in Britain's Houses of Parliament earlier this year (14).


Film bosses behind Cruise's new blockbuster are also reportedly hoping to shoot in The Shard, the tallest building in the U.K., and the Olympic Stadium, which was used in the London 2012 games.
