Tom Cruise breaks ankle, forcing filming of ‘Mission Impossible 6’ on hiatus
Production has shut down on “Mission: Impossible 6” due to star Tom Cruise’s broken ankle. Paramount Pictures said on Wednesday that production will go on hiatus while Cruise makes a full recovery.
Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt for the film during its London-based shoot.
TMZ posted a video Sunday that showed a tethered Cruise leaping to a building, hitting its side and then crawling over the top and running away. After he finished the take, Cruise is seen limping, though he was able to rappel back to the building he jumped from.
Paramount, a unit of Viacom, said the action movie remains on schedule to open on July 27, 2018.
Cruise, 55, is known for doing his own stunts.
The accident involving Cruise comes days after a stunt woman was killed in an accident on the movie ‘Deadpool 2’ which was being filmed in Vancouver.
