Don't panic about the helicopters, Paris police tell Parisians, it's just Tom Cruise making his new Mission Impossible film.


If you think there's a surprising or indeed worrying amount of action at the River Seine on Friday and Saturday, don't be alarmed.
It's just Tom Cruise and co filming Mission Impossible 6 (yes, we're at number six already). 
The Paris prefecture of police took to Twitter to assure locals in the 12th arrondissement that all the helicopters were only there for filming purposes. 
And Parisians better get used to it, because the 54-year-old megastar will be in town for 35 days in total, reports BFM TV
It remains unknown at this point whether Parisians will have the chance to see Cruise hanging out of the helicopters or not, or whether they're just for the camera team.  
The filming of the blockbuster will actually prove to be quite lucrative for Paris, with the production team paying around €25 million for the experience. 
And this can be added to the fact that the film crew will be hiring over 300 French technicians while they're in town. 
And for fans of movies set in Paris, you can look forward to seeing the finished film in July next year.
