BBCI: Tom Cruise injury halts Mission: Impossible 6 filming

Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible Stunt Fails Shooting Delayed For 3 Months

Tom Cruise broke his right ankle during a roof-jumping stunt on Mission: Impossible 6, an injury which has forced a temporary shutdown of the major film's production.

The below video, shows the star, who is strapped into a safety harness, leaping from the edge of one building before slamming into another.

That comes from Deadline, and while things sounded fairly dire for the movie at first, Paramount has issued a statement that makes it seem like everything will be alright.

According to McQuarrie, they'll take that time to rearrange the post-production schedule a bit and that the July 2018 release date is not yet in danger.

Cruise is admired in the industry for his adventurous attitude to filmmaking, which over the years has involved some hair-raising moments on set.

Filming of Mission: Impossible 6 - the follow-up to 2015's Rogue Nation - has now been halted for four months to allow Cruise to recover. As the 55-year-old actor gets up, he can be seen limping.

Cruise is something of a rarity among Hollywood actors for insisting on performing many of his own stunts. Apparently, that's how long it will take for Tom Cruise's leg and other non-specific injuries sustained during the stunt to properly heal. A serious injury which will require several months of convalescence and delaying the release of the action film.

Production commenced on the film in Paris in April; aside from London, other filming locations include New Zealand, India and Norway.

In Mission: Impossible 6 crews stars opposite returning stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris, as well as newcomers Henry Cavill and Angela Bassett. For the fourth film in the series, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (2011), he did wirework 2,700 feet up the side of the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, the world's tallest building.
