“Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can’t wait to share the film with everyone next summer,” says Paramount Pictures three days after Tom Cruise was injured on set of Mission: Impossible 6.
Paramount made a statement confirming that Cruise broke his ankle after seemingly falling short on a stunt where it looked like based on the video he was supposed to be jumping from building to building although Director Christopher McQuarrie said, “the truth is that the stunt was never designed for Tom to jump from rooftop to rooftop which, a) would have been pretty boring and b) when you see the actual shot you’ll understand how it was designed.” he then added that the stunt was supposed to fall short and Cruise was in fact supposed to land on the side of the building, “also, when you look at what was posted on the internet, you can see Tom do the same stunt multiple times. He was always supposed to slam into the side of the building. That’s what gives the stunt its energy.”
It has been confirmed by Paramount Pictures that because of Cruise’s injury production of Mission: Impossible 6 will be postponed until Tom makes his recovery. The film is set to open on July 27th 2018.
