Cruise to film in House of Commons?

Tom Cruise could be headed to Parliament - to film scenes for Mission: Impossible 5.

The Hollywood star is thought to be shooting some sequences at the House of Commons, after film bosses were given permission, reported The Sun.

Filming was previously not allowed inside the Houses of Commons, and studios had to replicate the set, but it opened its doors to Sarah Gavron's drama Suffragette, which stars Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter.

A source told The Sun: "M:I 5 will feature numerous well-known locations in London but the Houses of Parliament is clearly the biggest coup. The writers are excited about what stunts they could pull off inside the Commons."

According to the paper, Mission: Impossible bosses also looked into filming at the Shard and the Olympic Stadium.

Tom, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner all reprise their roles in the fifth instalment, which will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

The fourth film in the franchise, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, became the highest-grossing Mission: Impossible film when it was released in 2011.

Mission: Impossible 5 will be released in the UK in December 2015.
