Tom Cruise breaks ankle in stunt, halts production on 'Mission' film

Last weekend brought some troubling news when a stunt involving Tom Cruise on the set of Mission: Impossible 6 in London, England resulted in the actor seemingly injuring himself.

In a recent video taken by TMZ, Cruise could be seen making a jump from one building to another during filming in London. He fell short and hit a wall, before climbing up onto the building and hobbling away.

U.S. trade press reported that Cruise was left with a badly-damaged and possibly broken ankle after the accident on Saturday in central London, footage of which went viral. No official statement has been released on the extent of Cruise's injuries.

Mission Impossible 6 is the latest installment of the action spy film series based on an American television series sharing the same title.

McQuarrie says that Cruise is expected to make a full recovery, but production will have to be jimmied around in the meantime.

It continued: "Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer".

Cruise was connected to wires at the time of the incident and while there looked to be no risk of falling, the impact appeared to be serious. It's worth noting that the previous Mission: Impossible film was actually moved ahead six months on Paramount's release schedule, so a delay for the sixth film may not be an issue for the studio.

McQuarrie - who directed Cruise in Mission: Impossible 5 (2015) and Jack Reacher (2012) - posted a link to an article with British film magazine Empire in which he said his star was "in very good spirits".

Cinematographer Rob Hardy took to Instagram to show off this clapperboard, which reveals that the movie's first take was filmed on Saturday the 8th of April.

Because of this, filming will be put off for months, according to a film insider. It is set for release on July 27th 2018.

"I was scared s--less", Cruise admitted of his "Mission: Impossible 5" stunt.

Along with Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson will both reprise their roles as Alan Hunley and Isla Faust from Rogue Nation, with Henry Cavill also signed on in an unspecified role.
