Filming for the upcoming action movie was halted in Italy earlier this year after cases of coronavirus rose sharply.
The crew and actors have been in Norway filming ever since, before returning to the Italian capital earlier this week to continue with scenes.
Earlier this summer it was reported that Cruise hired a £500,000 ship for the film’s crew in Norway to avoid any coronavirus-related delays.
Filming was already delayed for five months after COVID-19 spread across Italy, where production had been based in March, leading the release date to be pushed back to November 2021.
