Cruise reportedly was hurt when he failed to successfully leap from a rigging onto a building landing. In video obtained by TMZ, Cruise, 55, comes up short on the jump and slams into the side of a building. He managed to hoist himself onto the building roof, but staggered there and appeared shaken. He then returned to the rigging via wire supports and walked away from the area with a noticeable limp.
Deadline has reached out to Paramount for comment. No word yet on the accident’s impact on the London-set production.
Christopher McQuarrie is helming the sixth M:I installment, targeting a summer 2018 release. Also starring are Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin.
