Cruise ankle break halts 'Mission: Impossible 6' production

VIDEO: Tom Cruise slamming into brick wall during failed action stunt

Cruise was left with two broken bones in his ankle after he plummeted into a concrete wall in mid air.

Production on the film Mission: Impossible 6 will be delayed by nearly two months because of the injury sustained by actor Tom Cruise this week.

"I was scared s--less", Cruise admitted of his "Mission: Impossible 5" stunt. The star has been injured performing stunts in the past and Cruise's old director Christopher McQuarrie has revealed that the star is very bold when it comes to performing his own stunts.

An insider close to production stated that Tom is a bit beat up, but that he is rather fearless and that this won't in any way stop him from doing more stunts in the future. He's always on the move, so it's going to be a nightmare for him to be immobile for weeks.

Daily Mail released photos of Tom Cruise shortly after he sustained the injury.

According to reports, Cruise was filming in London for a scene in the upcoming film, "Mission: Impossible 6". He falls short, slamming into the building's side, then pulls himself onto the roof and begins limping. Video of the accident which showed the Oscar nominated actor attempting to jump between rooftops has been released.




Cruise reportedly trained for over a year to get himself in shape for the stunts.

Paramount did not say how long production would be delayed.

The actor, of course, has experienced a few injuries over the years.

It was previously reported that Henry Cavill's commitment to Mission: Impossible 6 resulted in his partaking in Justice League reshoots with his contractually-agreed-upon facial hair for M:I 6. It's unclear if injuries could also delay the followup to the 1986 blockbuster movie, now scheduled to be released July 12, 2019.

Cruise, who has been nominated three times for an Oscar, is due to begin filming for the long-awaited sequel to 1986 hit Top Gun next year. Also, when you look at what was posted on the internet, you can see Tom do the same stunt multiple times.
