Tom Cruise was badly injured during a building-jumping stunt on the set of “Mission Impossible 6.” The 55-year-old actor was in London on Sunday, when he attempted to leap from a rigging onto a building but unfortunately fell short of the mark and hit the building pretty hard.
In the video above, you can see Tom Cruise trying to limp back to the edge of the building and is pulled away by crew members on the safety team.
The injury is worse than was at first feared. Tom did serious damage and will need months to recover. The daredevil actor — famous for insisting on performing all his own stunts — is said to have broken his ankle in two places after smashing into the side of a building.
Tom Cruise has jetted back to the US for treatment, forcing producers to push back filming on the shoot by months. He is the film’s biggest star and everything revolves around him. The movie’s bosses had no choice other than to postpone the filming.
It is now believed the film’s release could be pushed back from summer 2018 to Christmas that year because of the stalling.
