Tom Cruise suf­fers in­jury dur­ing build­ing-jump­ing stunt for 'Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble 6'

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -

ENGLISH Tom Cruise in­jured his leg dur­ing a stunt gone wrong while film­ing "Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble 6" in Lon­don on Aug. 13.

The ac­tor was film­ing a scene in which he was sup­posed to jump onto the roof of a build­ing in Lon­don. The ac­tor can be seen run­ning and leap­ing from a rig­ging, but fall­ing just short and hit­ting the side of a build­ing hard.

Af­ter slam­ming into the build­ing, Tom pulled him­self up and video shows him limp­ing quite pro­nouncedly. While mem­bers of the crew looked on, Tom could be seen try­ing to es­sen­tially walk it off be­fore col­laps­ing to his knees.

Af­ter col­lect­ing him­self, he limped back to the edge of the build­ing and and was pulled away by crew mem­bers on the safety team. He was wear­ing a safety har­ness. The ex­tent of the in­juries are un­known.

From Tom to do his own stunts is noth­ing new. Dur­ing the pre­vi­ous "Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble" film, Tom hung on the out­side of an air­plane while it was air­borne. While lit­tle is known about the plot of the new "MI" film, Sky­dance Me­dia CEO David El­li­son told Col­lider that Tom will be per­form­ing the big­gest stunt se­quence of his ca­reer in the film.

"What Tom is do­ing in this movie I be­lieve will top any­thing that's come be­fore. It is ab­so­lutely un­be­liev­able—he's been train­ing for a year," David said. "It is go­ing to be, I be­lieve, the most im­pres­sive and un­be­liev­able thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been work­ing on it since right af­ter Rogue Na­tion came out [in 2015]. It's gonna be mind-blow­ing."
