But the film production was met with immediate backlash when it was reported that said bridge was an 111-year-old historical landmark, a piece of the country’s heritage that would be demolished in the name of entertainment. But director Christopher McQuarrie is here to set the record straight: no, Mission: Impossible 7 is not blowing up a bridge — at least, not this particular bridge.
