Tom Cruise wanted to land his helicopter in James Corden’s garden

Tom Cruise is currently doing his best to keep the Mission: Impossible franchise afloat and is involved in the production process for the seventh film in the series. Set for a summer release in 2022, Cruise will star alongside the likes of Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Hayley Atwell among others who will reprise their roles.

While discussing the possibility of shooting Mission: Impossible in space, director Christopher McQuarrie said: “I think it’s inevitable. We’ve pretty much gone to the edge of thereof, so yeah, it’s sooner or later, Tom is gonna be in orbit. If there’s an actor that’s going to be the first actor in space practically, it’s Tom, or it’s somebody … it’s [James] Cameron, Chris Nolan, or Tom. Gonna be one of those three guys. That is the new space race.”

Recently, Tom Cruise has been going wild with his helicopter when he is not busy preaching Scientology to unsuspecting individuals. For some weird reason, he insists on infiltrating other people’s private properties with his helicopter. Landing helicopters in yards that do not belong to him might just be Cruise’s new way of asserting his dominance.

“This summer, me and Tom Cruise were texting about meeting up in London,” James Corden said on a recent episode of his ongoing series The Late Late Show. “He sent me a text saying, ‘Whereabouts are you staying?’ And I said, ‘I’m staying in St. Johns Wood,’ which is pretty central in London. He said, ‘Cool, can I land my helicopter there?’ And I just presumed he was joking.”

When Corden responded to Cruise’s preposterous request with emojis, Cruise reportedly replied: “Does this mean no?” Corden is only the latest target in a series of planned helicopter invasions. Cruise also landed his helicopter in the back yard of a family living in Warwickshire who were told that it was a “VIP running late.”

“It turned out to be an incredible day,” Alison Webb – a member of the family told BBC News. “It was surreal, I still now can’t believe it happened.”
