The actor was injured on set in London Sunday while filming a stunt for "Mission: Impossible 6", the latest flick in his blockbuster franchise, according to video obtained by TMZ. Instead of landing on the building where he was jumping towards, he fell short and plowed into the top and side of the building, though he was able to catch himself and hoist his body to the rooftop. In a video of the incident, you can see Cruise stumble while attempting to get back up, then collapse. He is then escorted away by crew members, still limping. While the complete details are a bit murky at time of reporting, what's clear is that Cruise's injury could affect the filming schedule for Mission: Impossible 6 and, furthermore, it could affect the film itself. "I told them, 'Don't stop filming.' I was hit by a tiny particle from the runway and I literally thought it broke my ribs". Plus, during Mission: Impossible II, the actor tore his shoulder while jumping across a cliff-face.
It's hard to assess how impactful this accident will be to the production since we don't know the extent of his injuries.
