Hollywood actor, Tom Cruise’s BMW has been stolen in Birmingham, UK while filming the latest installment of Mission Impossible.

The BMW X7 had been used to ferry around the movie star, who has been in the city filming scenes for Mission Impossible 7.

The Guardian reports that Cruise’s car was taken in Church Street in the city centre from where it was parked outside the Grand Hotel, where he has been staying.

It is said that the BMW was carrying some of the actor’s luggage and belongings, reportedly worth thousands of pounds, when it was taken.

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 causing a stir in the Midlands all week, and has been seen 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.”

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

“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.”
