The sixth installment in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise is now shooting in London.
Syracuse native Tom Cruise appears to have injured himself while filming a stunt for his next "Mission: Impossible" sequel. Cruise comes short of making it to the other rooftop, though, and his body slams into the building, all the while still securely attached to his safety harness.
He pulls himself up and is then limping badly, this part doesn't look like an act! It captures a tethered Cruise leaping to a building, hitting its side and then crawling over the top and running away.
Cruise is no stranger to stunt work, having performed all manner of risky stunts in past "Mission: Impossible" flicks - including hanging onto the exterior of a jet plane as it took off. The extent of his injuries or the seriousness of the mishap was not immediately clear.
"I was scared s--less", Cruise admitted of his "Mission: Impossible 5" stunt. "I told them, 'Don't stop filming.' I was hit by a tiny particle from the runway and I literally thought it broke my ribs".
Tom is now on set in London and he was wearing a safety harness during the time of the accident.
Cruise was even getting injuries in the early days of the franchise when he was about 20 years younger.
