Mission: Impossible 7 will feature one of Poland’s highest steel bridges at Lake Pilchowickie near Jelenia Góra, south-western Poland, news website Onet has reported. The 495ft bridge, built in 1909, fell into disrepair and it closed in 2016.

According to reports, the Hollywood hit’s production crew plans feature blowing the bridge up for an action sequence. As a result, there is a push for the landmark to be recognized as a monument.

In a letter to Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Miles Oglethorpe, who is the chairman of the International Committee for the Conservation of Industrial Heritage, argued that the bridge had historic value and that only a few bridges of this specific structure exist in the world nowadays.

On the other hand, deputy Culture Minister Paweł Lewandowski argued that the bridge had no cultural value and the Hollywood production would bring global attention and publicity to Poland.

Lewandowski, in a written statement for the Wirtualna Polska news website, said the bridge "stands in ruins […] Not all old things are monuments. The law clearly states that a monument is only that which has social, artistic or scientific value.”

He also added that "only a small part of it will be destroyed during filming."

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7, which stars Tom Cruise, is set to relocate to Poland in April. The blockbuster will be released on 19 November, 2021.
