As per a report by The Guardian, Tom Cruise has been filmed in apparent pain after a stunt for his new film Mission: Impossible 6 went wrong.
Cruise was performing a scene for the latest instalment of the long-running franchise in London. It involved him jumping between two buildings with the assistance of a safety harness. Footage recorded by TMZ shows him mistiming his leap and crashing into the side of the second building. The actor was able to pull himself up onto the roof of the building but was then seen limping heavily before collapsing next to members of the film’s crew. It is not yet known what the extent of Cruise’s injuries is or whether he received hospital treatment.
Cruise is something of a rarity among Hollywood actors for insisting on performing many of his own stunts. In 2011, the actor scaled the outside of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, currently the world’s tallest building, for a scene from Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. For 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, meanwhile, he was attached to the exterior of an Airbus 400 as it took off. Cruise also performed inside a zero-gravity plane for the recent reboot of The Mummy.
Mission: Impossible 6 is set to be released in cinemas in July 2018. The film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who previously worked with Cruise on Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation and the first instalment in the Jack Reacher series.
