Tom Cruise Injured in 'Mission Impossible' Stunt

Tom Cruise injured filming stunt on 'Mission: Impossible 6' set

According to The Telegraph in London, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2017/08/13/tom-cruise-injured-filming-mission-impossible/ Cruise has been filming the latest installation of the action series in an unknown part of London, with some on social media saying the film has been set on the Thames' northern banks.

Tom Cruise may have suffered an injury while performing a stunt on the London set of "Mission: Impossible 6". Instead of landing on the building, he slammed into it. Ouch!

A request for comment from Cruise's rep wasn't immediately returned.

In a video obtained by TMZ, the actor is harnessed to cables to keep him aloft, and can be seen leaping from the top of one building to another.

While he had tried to run and jump from a platform onto another structure while wearing a safety wire, TMZ reports with exclusive footage available at their network that he appeared to "leap too soon", hitting the building.

The opening scene highlighted Cruise's Ethan Hunt clinging to an Airbus 400 as it navigated down a runway and in the end takes off. The stunts involved helicopters and motorcycles and he was seen smiling an waving to fans who had gathered to check out the filming of the legendary movie franchise.

"There are shortcuts", Rogue Nation stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood told Variety in 2015.

Cruise was tethered when he performed the stunt. The followup to the 1986 blockbuster movie is scheduled to be released July 12, 2019.

Mission Impossible 6 is now being filmed in London and will also star Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin. Producers are J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger.

"I've trained for 30 years doing things like this", he said back in 2013 on The Graham Norton Show.
