Tom Cruise may have suffered an injury while performing a stunt for Mission: Impossible 6 based on reports by TMZ which obtained a video of the incident.
According to TMZ, they obtained a video taken on the London set which shows the actor jumping from one building to another and falling short of his mark. Cruise appears to have hit the building hard and is shown limping away after getting back on his feet.
It was also revealed that after the fall, Cruise was able to return to the line and get himself back to the original building. The extent of his injuries is unclear, and The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to both his rep and Paramount for comment.
The 55-year-old actor has a history of doing his own stunts, with his Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation plane sequence even serving as a key point in the film’s marketing. The opening scene featured Cruise’s Ethan Hunt hanging onto an Airbus 400 as it taxies down a runway and eventually takes off.
Director Christopher McQuarrie is returning for the sixth installment of the franchise, which is set to hit theaters July 27, 2018. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin.
We hope the daring and talented actor is not seriously injured and can resume his acting for Mission Impossible 6.
