Tom Cruise has gone straight back to work after his lawyers reached a speedy divorce settlement with his estranged wife Katie Holmes.

The Hollywood superstar was filming upcoming sci-fi movie Oblivion in Iceland when his wife of five years filed divorce papers in New York last month and he returned to the U.S. days later.

On Monday, the stars announced they had reached a settlement less than two weeks after Holmes moved to end the marriage, paving the way for their official separation, and the actor promptly headed back to work.

He was photographed arriving in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., on Monday afternoon to continue shooting Oblivion, while a representative for the production has confirmed Cruise will spend the next few days filming there.

Holmes remains in the Big Apple with their six-year-old daughter, Suri.
