‘The hit against the side of the building sounds crushing,’ the article said
While most of the details of the plot of the latest film have been kept tightly under wraps, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison revealed that Tom will be performing the biggest stunt sequence of his career in the film.
Cruise control: Tom is known for performing his own stunts in his movies
Ellison told Collider: ‘What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that’s come before. It is absolutely unbelievable he’s been training for a year.
‘It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after Rogue Nation came out [in 2015].’
‘It’s gonna be mind blowing,’ he teased.
The upcoming movie is set to be action packed and Tom is no stranger to getting stuck into stunts for his archive of acting work.
Touch down: Tom landed safely and continued running along the rooftop successfully completing the take
Over the years, he has taken part in many dramatic scenes, including submerging himself in water for six minutes to film an underwater scene of him breaking into a vault for Mission Impossible: Rogue National, being flung around an airplane cabin in zero gravity for The Mummy and many high speed car chases.
In one scene for 2004 flick Collateral, Jamie Foxx had to drive his car into one driven by Cruise, but misjudging the speed, Tom was sent flying into the air as his car was flung off set.
Despite suffering a slew of minor injuries such as hurting his ankle in a scene where fish tanks exploded for the first Mission Impossible movie back in 1996 and facing a number of near death moments while carrying out stunts, it hasn’t put Tom off doing them himself.
He was previously praised by Rob Alonzo, the film stunt coordinator for Jack Reacher (2012), who said: ‘He is better than most stunt men. He’s an incredible driver, an incredible fighter and stunt performer.
Happy to be here: The acting talent appeared in high spirits as he exited the helicopter and was no doubt left intrigued as he has been learning how to fly a helicopter for the Top Gun sequel
‘He flies planes, he knows how to ride horses, he rides motorcycles, so any director would be lucky to have a guy like that because they can keep the camera on him the whole time and it’s more engaging.’
His latest stunt for Mission Impossible 6 came after Tom was seen exiting a helicopter at the beginning of August, as filming continued for his latest filming endeavour.
He appeared in high spirits as he touched down in the capital no doubt keen to continue on with his work on set.
Tom stars alongside Man of Steel star Henry Cavill in the film, as well as a host of other big names including Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner and The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby.
Cavill’s addition to the cast was confirmed earlier this year by none other than Mission Impossible 6 directorChristopher McQuarrie via Instagram.
Adrenaline junkie: Over the years, he has taken part in many dramatic scenes, including submerging himself in water for six minutes to film an underwater scene of him breaking into a vault for Mission Impossible: Rogue National, being flung around an airplane cabin in zero gravity for The Mummy and many high speed car chases
Cavill responded: ‘How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair.’
Meanwhile, Tom is facing a busy schedule, having confirmed the Top Gun sequel in May, back when he was promoting The Mummy.
