Tom Cruise’s car stolen while filming Mission Impossible 7

Tom Cruise, who is currently filming in Birmingham, had his BMW stolen.

The X7 had been used by the Hollywood A-lister to get from A to B, while he has been filming scenes for the seventh Mission Impossible.

It was parked outside the Grand Hotel in Church Street, where Cruise has been staying, when it was taken, as first reported by The Sun.

When stolen, the SUV is thought to have had some of Cruise’s luggage and belongings worth thousands of pounds inside.

The car was recovered “a short time later” in Smethwick about three miles away according to police, but the contents were reportedly missing.

The 59-year-old has been seen in the Midlands all week. He was spotted wearing a dark suit and sunglasses in Birmingham’s Grand Central shopping centre, which had been transformed to look like an Abu Dhabi airport for filming.

Cruise could be seen recording scenes in front of a row of shops above New Street Station’s main concourse, where crowds had gathered to catch a glimpse of the film star.

British Transport Police in Birmingham also tweeted a picture of two officers with the masked movie star, with the message: “I promise you, this isn’t photoshopped.”

He has his photo taken outside an Indian cuisine last weekend.

According to restaurant Asha’s Instagram page, he enjoyed his chicken tikka masala so much that he ordered the curry for a second time after he had finished his first serving.

The actor also posed for photos with a family in the village of Baginton, Warwickshire, after they gave his helicopter permission to land in their garden, following the temporary closure of nearby Coventry Airport.

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 has been taking place around the UK.

In April, pictures emerged of a train track set up at a quarry in Derbyshire, said to be attached to the film.

Cruise has also filmed action scenes on top of a moving mock steam locomotive in North Yorkshire.

He is returning to his role as Ethan Hunt in the latest instalment of the blockbuster action film series.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “We received a report of a BMW X7 stolen from Church Street, Birmingham in the early hours of Tuesday morning (August 24).

“The car was recovered a short time later in Smethwick.

“CCTV inquiries have been made in the area that the car was recovered from.

“Inquiries are ongoing.”
