'Mission: Impossible 6' Production Shut Down Due to Tom Cruise's Injury

But Paramount says the film is still on target for its original release date of 27th July 2018, despite having about two months left to shoot.

A brand new report has claimed that the ongoing production for Mission: Impossible 6 has been temporarily suspended due to Tom Cruise's recent on-set accident. Hollywood trade paper Variety said filming could be halted anywhere from six weeks to three months while Cruise recovers.

Tom Cruise is known for performing his stunts himself in his films. In fact, the father of little Suri has cushioned the shock with his ankle, which is broken in two places.

Despite the major setback, Paramount and other sources have indicated that the delay won't affect the film's planned July 27th, 2018 release date.

In fact, the elaborate and often risky set-pieces Cruise performs have become something of a calling card, with Cruise trying to out-do himself for each new movie.

"Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer", the statement concluded.

Video shows the 55-year-old actor limping after pulling himself onto a platform and attempting to run.

In Mission: Impossible 6 crews stars opposite returning stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris, as well as newcomers Henry Cavill and Angela Bassett.

Mission Impossible 6 is the latest installment of the action spy film series based on an American television series sharing the same title. He also got bruised up while riding in a zero-gravity plane for the film, The Mummy, and injured an ankle during the very first Mission Impossible.

"We jump off buildings and towns explode, and Tom really does it all, and he insists his cast do it too", added Jake Johnson, 39, who plays Cruise's sidekick in action thriller.

Representatives for Cruise have not yet commented on his injury, which occurred Sunday in London.
