NME Festival blog: Tom Cruise spotted filming ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ stunt on London railway bridge
Traffic across Blackfriars Bridge and boats in the area were stopped while the stunt was being filmed
Tom Cruise was spotted filming a stunt for Mission: Impossible 6 in London earlier today (January 13).
The latest instalment in the action spy franchise is set to be released on July 27, 2018. It will star Vanessa Kirby, Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and more, alongside Cruise.
The actor’s latest stunt for the film saw him running across the top of Blackfriars railway bridge, as a helicopter filmed him from above.
As The Independent reports, traffic was halted on Blackfriars Bridge and boats diverted away from that area of the Thames while filming was occurring. Check out footage of Cruise’s run below.
Meanwhile, Cruise suffered an injury while filming a stunt for the movie last summer. A video obtained by TMZ showed him jumping from building to building, but missing his landing point and hitting a wall instead.
In the footage, he could be seen getting back on his feet, but appeared to be limping heavily. After taking a few steps, he bent double for a few seconds, before limping back to the edge of the building.
It was later confirmed that Cruise had broken his ankle. The injury halted production on the movie, with today’s stunt shoot marking the actor’s first day back on set since the accident.
