Tom Cruise Stunt Gone Wrong
Tom Cruise was hurt during a stunt on the set of Mission: Impossible 6. The injury came as he was attempting to jump from one building to another. Currently, his exact injuries are not known at this time and it is unclear if the injury will affect production on the film.
News of the injury was broke by TMZ, which showed Tom Cruise making a jump from one building to another but missing his landing. Although he was fully harnessed so he would not take a big fall, the impact looked very painful. After missing his landing he begins to limp before the video cuts off. This is the actor’s sixth installment as Ethan Hunt in the blockbuster franchise Mission: Impossible.
Why continue doing your own stunts.
However, Tom Cruise prides himself on doing his own stunts in the Mission: Impossible franchise and other films. When asked why he does his own stunts he stated, “I want to entertain the audience the best way and in every possible way that I can, it’s also a challenge.”
Mission: Impossible 6 details
Mission: Impossible 6 will keep the gang together for the most part. Tom Cruise with Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson, and Michelle Monaghan are all returning. In addition to those characters, newcomers Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, and Angela Bassett will debut. Unfortunately, Jeremy Renner is unable to reprise his role in the film as a result of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 filming. Henry Cavill will likely pickup the supporting role in Jeremy Renner’s place. Paramount Pictures has set a release date of July 27, 2018, for Mission: Impossible 6.
