The speculations are over now and finally it has been confirmed that Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is filming for his forthcoming movie ‘Mission Impossible 6’ in Abu Dhabi.
It all started when the actor was snapped last month at the house of media executive Ahmad Al Shaikh in Dubai. Al Shaikh shared his picture along with the superstar on Twitter and wrote that they talked about the best ways of making the UAE a hotspot and a magnet for global filmmaking.
A week later, Tom Cruise took to Twitter and shared the news with his fans that he’s filming for his upcoming movie in Abu Dhabi.
Thank you to everyone in Abu Dhabi for the amazing help and cooperation. Our filming here continues to be a wonderful experience.

Maryam Eid Al Mheiri said, “Through the combined efforts of Abu Dhabi Film Commission 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.
