According to The Guardian report, the cast and crew members of the film "Pan" challenged the "Mission: Impossible" star and crew to do the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" to help in raising money and awareness on the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease. Director Chris McQuarrie explained in the video that the cast and crew of the upcoming film are in different locations so he and Tom Cruise will do an ice bucket challenge enough to represent the entire film crew.
"We didn't want to miss the 24-hour deadline so Tom and I are here to take a hit for the team," McQuarrie stated. Additionally, Tom Cruise stated in the video that they will be making donations to the ALS organization on behalf of the "Mission: Impossible 5" cast and crew.
Then, Tom Cruise and Chris McQuarrie nominated Paramount Film Group President Adam Goodman, Skydance Productions CEO David Ellison and Paramount Studio boss Brad Grey to do the "Ice Bucket Challenge." Have a look at the video below.
The "Mission: Impossible 5" team is now back at work in Vienna, Austria. A Mail Online report revealed that the upcoming film's cast and crew members were spotted in Vienna on Tuesday, Aug. 26.
