Hurtigruten has rented out two of its ships to the company filming the seventh “Mission Impossible” movie starring Tom Cruise.

Hurtigruten can confirm to VG that they have rented out two of their ships, MS Vesterålen and MS Fridtjof Nansen, beginning at the end of August until the end of September to the company Truenorth. The company is at the moment working on the seventh “Mission Impossible” movie with Hollywood star Tom Cruise.

What the ships will be used for on the other hand, Per Henry Borch of Truenorth, is unwilling to comment on.

“That I cannot tell you”, is all he will say.

MS Fridtjof Nansen is docked at Hellesylt and will function as a hotel-ship during filming. This has been confirmed by the Counsilor of Stranda municipality.

During filming, there will be a film crew of about 200 international and 200 Norwegian workers according to documents seen by the local newspaper Åndalsnes avis. The American company will need to practice strict infection control measures.

Mission Impossible 7 has been granted nearly 50 million NOK by the Norwegian film institute. The film team has already recorded several scenes at Åndalsnes station.

    Mission:Impossible 7 hopefully will be able to start filming soon… waiting patiently. We are worldwide facing challenges due to COV-19 but Tom Cruise will not allow a virus rule his plans

  2. Like before in Mission Impossible 6 in which Norway shown as Kashmir, India. This time Norway will be shown some other country. Since we Norwegian are so influenced by Tom Cruise that we have lost our own Dignity. Norway the richest country in Europe is now so excited to get jobs for 200 Norwegian that it is willing to do anything for Tom Cruise. What a shame.
