Tom Cruise was injured after slamming into a wall while filming a stunt for the upcoming movie “Mission: Impossible 6.” TMZ released video Sunday morning of the actor attempting a leap across a gap, only to fall short, and walk away with a limp.

Cruise is currently shooting the sixth installment in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise in London.

In the clip, Cruise, attached to a pulley system, can be seen limping after coming up short on his jump. After pulling himself onto the platform that he slammed into, the actor attempts to run, but stumbles. The crew then uses the pulley system to pull him back to the first platform, where they assist the actor off-camera. The extent of the injury are unclear.

Representative for Cruise did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

In addition to Cruise, “Mission: Impossible 6” also stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Alec Baldwin. Producers are J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Tom Cruise, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger.

Cruise has become known for going to great lengths to execute his own stunts. For his recent reboot of the “The Mummy,” the actor did 64 takes of a plane crash sequence in zero gravity.

The Paramount Pictures sequel is slated to hit theaters on July 27, 2018.

    Interesting, but also unfortunate, that Tom Cruise has injured himself. I remember some years ago, due to the celebrity’s personal beliefs, this actor was adamantly opposed to modern medicine. Now that Tom Cruise has himself succumbed to injury, the question is: Does this actor still eschew modern medicine?

    I thought he could levitate.

  3. elliotjames2 says:

    This guy puts himself through more abuse making movies than Lon Chaney Sr. did and that’s saying a lot.

  4. Phillip Ayling says:

    His legs may heal…his psyche is a more open question.

  5. Dunstan says:

    A little E meter hook up and he’ll be good as new.

  6. John says:

    Tom needs to buy the next-level Scientology course, where they teach how to jump successfully.

  7. a. baca says:

    Maybe he should stick with jumping up and down on a couch.

  8. you 're right ryan says:

    I think he will have banged his legs/knees bad give him a day and he will do the same stunt.

    He’s all good! Just another day at the office for Tom Cruise!
