Cruise back shooting 'Impossible' London stunts
Tom Cruise has been shooting stunts on London’s Blackfriars Bridge for his upcoming film, months after getting injured.
Production of the latest Mission: Impossible film were halted last year after Cruise fell and broke his ankle during a misjudged stunt.
In August, a video was shared showing the 55-year-old actor jumping between two high roofs in London, supported only by a wire.
Cruise seemingly fails to get the jump right, and then hurts his ankle getting up, causing Paramount to suspend production.
According to director Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise was “always supposed to slam into the side of the building” during the stunt.
“On the fourth try, he hit the building at a slightly different angle and he broke his ankle.”
On Saturday, the American star was back at it, seen sprinting through Blackfriars rail bridge over the Thames, with a helicopter chasing him.
Traffic was halted and boats kept from the area while the scenes were being shot.
Reports in the US last year suggested the movie could see its release date postponed as Cruise recovered.
But McQuarrie insisted the sixth instalment of the action franchise remains set for 27 July.
Cruise is known for being one of the few film stars to do his own stunts in action-packed movies.
He is due to begin filming for the long-awaited sequel to 1986 hit Top Gun later this year.
