A 34-year-old man has been arrested during the shoot for Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 5 in Vienna after storming onto the filming location on Wednesday night and lashing out at people.


Despite the area around the shoot being restricted to cast and crew only, the aggressive man refused to leave and insulted security men when they appeared to escort him from the scene.

Police were called, and when they arrived the man also tried to attack them. Despite repeated requests he refused to calm down and was quickly arrested and charged with disorderly behaviour.

With the plot details still under wraps, Mission: Impossible 5 will next shoot in London and is set for release on December 26th, 2015.

Vienna is becoming a popular location for big budget films, with Helen Mirren recently in the Austrian capital to film The Woman in Gold - a biopic based on the life of World War II survivor Maria Altmann. 

Sam Neill was also recently in Vienna to film scenes for Andrew Goth's science fiction thriller Deus Ex Machina. 

According to a new report on, Daniel Craig and the cast and crew of the new James Bond film will head to Obertilliach, close to Austria’s Italian border, to film for three days in January 2015.
