Tom Cruise injured filming 'Mission: Impossible 6' stunt

The incident occurred during filming in London this week.

Tom Cruise injured himself in London today when a high-octane stunt went wrong and saw him crashing into the side of a building while filming "Mission: Impossible 6". He then heads back to the first building, with a noticeable limp, before crew members move him away to safety.

The 55-year-old actor, who performs most of his own stunts for the popular action movie franchise, hit the building when attempting to leap a short distance from a nearby rigging, reports TMZ.

In the footage, the impact looks serious and, once delivered by wire to the roof, Cruise limps away, unsteady on his feet.

The unsafe stunt was performed today, and soon after, the star began limping, worrying his staff and crew. We wish Tom Cruise the best, and hope he recovers quickly.

Cruise is no stranger to stunt work, having performed all manner of unsafe stunts in past "Mission: Impossible" flicks - including hanging onto the exterior of a jet plane as it took off. "And the tension, because the stunt is real, actually puts the audience where Ethan Hunt is where they are in the movie".

While the extent of his injury is unknown, his rep and manager did not provide any comment to press. "I want to keep audiences on the edge of their seats".

"Mission: Impossible 6", starring Cruise as International Monetary Fund agent Ethan Hunt, is scheduled to be released July 27, 2018.
