Tom Cruise injured while doing a stunt for 'Mission Impossible 6'

14 August 2017

Tom Cruise may have to rethink doing his own stunts.

American actor Tom Cruise appears to have suffered an injury while filming Mission: Impossible 6.

In a video obtained by ABC News, the actor is seen leaping off a platform, while attached to a bungee cord. 13, the 55-year-old actor was performing a stunt where he attempted to jump off a scaffolding onto an adjacent building, but it seems like he didn't measure the jump correctly.

After hoisting himself onto the building, Cruise limps before collapsing near crew members.

Based on the television series of the same name, the Mission: Impossible film franchise has pulled a cumulative box office total of around US$2.7 billion since its launch in 1996.

No stranger to wild stunts, Cruise has upped his game for Mission: Impossible 6, reportedly working for an entire year in preparation for a single stunt.

Markets Right Now: Stocks drift lower on Wall Street
Earlier in Asia, Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 slipped less than 0.1 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng slid 1.1 percent. The dollar came under immediate pressure and gold moved to fresh 2-month highs just above $1,290 per ounce.

It's unclear how badly Cruise was injured or whether it will affect filming.

David Ellison told Collider: "What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that's come before. He said that's why he does it; it's all about entertaining an audience and it makes the movie better".

The extent of his injuries is not yet known; reps for Cruise and Paramount Pictures did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

"Plus, you want to live through it".

"Mission: Impossible 6", also starring Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg, is set for release in July 2018.
