The United States offers Hollywood actors, crew exemptions from segregation rules – diversity2 min read
The United States will exempt some of the top U.S. actors, such as Tom Cruise, and Crew, from a 14-day travel concoction to resume production of Hollywood blockbusters.
The move follows a conversation between Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden and Cruz earlier this week about resuming filming for the latest “Mission: Impossible” film.
The seventh and eighth installments of “Mission: Impossible” – starring and produced by Cruz – are being produced at Warner Bros. Studios Lewesdon, near London.
Dowden said: “The world’s biggest blockbusters and high-end TV shows are made in the UK. Our creativity, efficiency and ultimate successful tax breaks for our screen industry means we have a place to meet demand which in turn provides a great return for our economy.” We want the industry to bounce back and release a small number of vital casts and crews from isolation as part of our unwavering commitment to safely rotate the camera again. ”
Adrian Watton, chief executive of the British Film Commission, said: “Today’s welcome news is a recognition of the importance of the film and high-end TV domestic investment sector in the UK economy.”
“The value of this sector was more than ৩ 3 billion [$3.75 billion] In 2012 and following our lockdown could play a significant role in our economic recovery. “
Ben Roberts, chief executive of the British Film Institute, said: “Film and television are worth 9.9 billion. [$12.4 billion] Getting back to the U.S. economy and manufacturing back up and running as soon as possible is going to help our industry, and its 77,000 manufacturing workers will help contribute to America’s economic recovery. “
