"Thank you all for your support and concern". He was scheduled to see his doctor this week, said sources close to the production, after which Paramount, the studio behind the film, will determine how long shooting will be delayed. The action star slammed into the side of a building and broke his right ankle in the process.
Cruise pulled himself up from his dangling position and was able to get on top of the other building. He says that the movie contains a lot more action than the last Mission: Impossible, but most of it has already been shot, with just one "really intense" action sequence left to go.
Filming of the sixth installment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise has taken place in the Blackfriars district of London, England. Cruise propelled himself onto the rooftop, but collapsed after limping toward the production crew. Consequently, Cruise ended up hitting the building hard.
A subsequently released video shows that Cruise attempted this stunt at least twice, apparently failing each time, leading to the belief that his injuries may be severe.
We would like to wish Mr. Cruise, who is, without a doubt, one of the craziest and most badass 55-year-olds working in Hollywood today, a very safe and speedy recovery.
Tree falls on Portugal's Madeira Island, killing 12
A security perimeter had been set up around the church, where anxious worshippers were gathered waiting anxiously for news. Portugal's prime minister, Antonio Costa, tweeted: "I express my condolences for the victims of the accident in Madeira".
According to reports, Cruise, 55, has flown back to the U.S. for treatment, forcing producers to push back filming by months. It's unclear if injuries could also delay the followup to the 1986 blockbuster movie, now scheduled to be released July 12, 2019. "We'd do a stunt and it would hurt, and I'm like, "I think something went wrong because it hurt" and he'd go 'Well yeah - we jumped off a building, dummy'".
Representatives for Cruise have not yet commented on his injury, which occurred Sunday in London.
Bosses at Paramount and Skydance have scrapped filming to allow Cruise's feet and ankles to heal.
