Cruise is now shooting the sixth installment in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise in London.
Actor Tom Cruise body-slammed into a brick wall when a high-flying stunt he was filming for "Mission Impossible 6" went awry, according to a video released Sunday. But this time around, it appears that he fell short trying to pull off a risky maneuver. Cruise then pulls himself up the side of the building, attempting to continue the action, but he quickly stops as he limps a few steps, momentarily dropping to his knees next to the camera crew. He is then escorted away by crew members, still limping.
TMZ reports the extent of Cruise's injuries are not known. "I told them, 'Don't stop filming.' I was hit by a tiny particle from the runway and I literally thought it broke my ribs".
Cruise was even getting injuries in the early days of the franchise when he was about 20 years younger.
Mission: Impossible 6 is due out on July 27, 2018. Plus, during Mission: Impossible II, the actor tore his shoulder while jumping across a cliff-face. It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after "Rogue Nation" came out.
Tom is now on set in London and he was wearing a safety harness during the time of the accident.
