The Mission: Impossible franchise has become a consistent showcase for at least one wild stunt that Tom Cruise has made a decision to do himself.
Cruise was filming the latest in the lucrative action series Mission: Impossible in an unknown part of the capital, although some on social media suggest that the film set is on the northern banks of The Thames. The video was published Sunday by TMZ. He is able to hoist himself up, but walks with a visible limp before collapsing next to crew members.
Cruise is well known for doing his own stunts, which have included hanging off the side of an airplane in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation in 2015 and scaling the world's tallest building - Dubai's Burj Khalifa - in 2011's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Patrol.
Meanwhile, producer David Ellison previously revealed that Cruise has been "training for a year" for his role in "Mission: Impossible 6". At the time of reporting, Cruise's representatives had not answered requests for comment from outlets actively reporting on the situation, including The Hollywood Reporter.
It's unclear how badly Cruise was injured or whether it will affect filming.
"I was scared s--less", Cruise admitted of his "Mission: Impossible 5" stunt.
"Mission: Impossible 6", starring Cruise as International Monetary Fund agent Ethan Hunt, is scheduled to be released July 27, 2018.
