‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Shoot Set For 8-Week Hiatus Following Tom Cruise Injury | Film News
Tom Cruise’s injury on the set of Mission: Impossible 6 looks set to delay production of the Paramount film by eight to nine weeks. The actor, who is known for doing his own stunts, was injured this past weekend in London when jumping between buildings and falling short of his mark, smacking into one side hard and limping away afterwards.
A source said that the injury is believed to be a damaged ankle, including a possible break. So far, neither Cruise’s reps nor Paramount have commented on the extent of his injuries. The accident, which took place on the roof of Baynard House, an office block in the Blackfriars district of London, occurred on Saturday. Sources say this was day 88 of the Mission: Impossible 6 shoot, which was due to carry on for another two months and into October.
Producers are now planning to reconvene in October and wrap before Christmas. They’re also keeping stages at the busy Leavesdon studios outside of London on hold to ensure they have them available when production starts again.
Mission: Impossible 6, which also stars Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin, is due out in theaters July 27, 2018. It’s unclear at this point whether the film’s release date will have to be pushed back.
The 55-year-old actor has a history of performing difficult stunts, with his Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation plane sequence even serving as a key point in the film’s marketing. The opening scene featured Cruise’s Ethan Hunt hanging on to an Airbus 400 as it taxies down a runway and eventually takes off.
