Tom Cruise spotted at the Louvre Abu Dhabi


It was reported he was here to wrap up Mission: Impossible 7 in the UAE.

Social media feeds and The National Newspaper, among other media outlets, reported that Hollywood A-list actor Tom Cruise was spotted in Abu Dhabi this week.

The National newspaper in the UAE reported that the “American actor was seen outside Louvre Abu Dhabi in a new photo shared on Twitter”.

The image was posted by Hamad Al Hosani on Saturday.



Tom Cruise was said to have been in the capital to film Mission: Impossible 7.

Yalla – Abu Dhabi Life recently ran an article on interns at twofour54, some of whom had worked with Tom Cruise on set.

In the article, Maitha Khalifa, the head of Creative Lab, a talent development initiative by twofour54 and Image Nation, revealed how Creative Lab supported Emirati Shahid Mohammed, a volunteer in 2015, through workshops at Creative Lab in twofour54.

“We supported her in developing her talent and she undertook an academic placement in post-production, since that was her major,” says Maitha, who goes on to say how Shahid went on to work on the set of Mission Impossible – Fallout, which had wrapped scenes in Abu Dhabi.

“Tom Cruise was on set and had his photograph taken with a group of interns and management. The great thing was that Shehid was mentioned in the credits at the end of the film, which was a great deal for her since she was an intern.”
