When it comes to performing stunts on screen, actors don’t come more committed than Tom Cruise. Despite being in his mid-fifties, the veteran movie star isn’t afraid to seriously test the limits; from scaling the tallest building in the world, to hanging from the side of a plane mid take-off. And according to sources, he has something even bigger and more insane planned for Mission: Impossible 6…
Pre-production on the film is underway, with a move to full production forthcoming, which will see Cruise and the team trotting the globe as they shoot in Paris, London, and New Zealand. Whilst we are unsure what crazy stunt sequence he has in mind for the film, we do know he has been in extensive training for it for the last year.
Speaking to Collider at SXSW, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison had the following to say:
“After the Burj [Khalifa] we thought it was going to be impossible to top that stunt, and then Tom did the A400M for the plane. What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that’s come before. It is absolutely unbelievable—he’s been training for a year. It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after Rogue Nation came out. It’s gonna be mind-blowing.”
Directed once again by Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise will be joined by Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Henry Cavill, Jeremy Renner, and Simon Pegg. We’ll have to wait a while longer to see what the actor has been planning, as M:I 6 doesn’t hit theatres until July 2018.
