Teutons: Reichstag filming impossible

'Mission' request rejected due to parliament rules

Tom Cruise will not be allowed to film scenes for “Mission: Impossible 3” in the Reichstag, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The parliament spokeswoman confirmed a report in the Bild daily that a location manager from Babelsberg Studios near Berlin had asked permission to shoot scenes for the movie in the Reichstag, known for its giant glass dome that attracts thousands of tourists. The request was rejected as part of the parliament’s regular rules about filming, which is only allowed in relation to political proceedings, the spokeswoman said.

“The dignity of parliament should be preserved,” she said. “It is handled similarly by other parliaments.”

“Mission: Impossible 3” is expected to begin filming in Berlin and surrounding areas this summer. Cruise is a co-producer and star of the action-thriller.
