A video was taken on the set of ”Mission: Impossible 6” showing Tom Cruise limping after performing a stunt where he jumps between buildings. The video captured 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 was seen limping, though he was able to rappel back to the building he jumped from. As the video ends, he is helped away from the set by stunt professionals. The stunt required him to run and jump from one building to another but he missed his mark and landed short, crashing hard into the side of the building. The extent of Cruise’s injuries wasn’t known. Neither Cruise’s representatives nor Paramount Pictures returns messages Sunday.

The 55-year-old actor is well known for performing many of his own stunts. Back in 2013 on The Graham Norton Show, Cruise had said, “I’ve trained for 30 years doing things like this.” “It allows us to put cameras in places that you’re not normally able to do. When I started producing ‘Mission: Impossible,’ I started developing different action around what I could physically train to do,” he added.
The sixth installment in the ”Mission: Impossible” franchise is currently shooting in London. It’s scheduled for release in July next year.
