Tom Cruise won't be jumping up and down on a couch or a set for six weeks, according to Hollywood Life, which called his stunt-induced ankle injury "a pretty nasty break". Director Christopher McQuarrie explained to Empire that while Cruise was always supposed to crash into the building, "he hit the building at a slightly different angle" during one execution of the stunt.

Daily Mail released photos of Tom Cruise shortly after he sustained the injury.

The 55-year-old actor has a history of performing hard stunts, with his Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation plane sequence even serving as a key point in the film's marketing.

"Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer", the statement added.

Also, when you look at what was posted on the internet, you can see Tom do the same stunt multiple times. He performed the stunt again but this time, he was not able to latch on to the other building. Cruise, however, knew something was wrong immediately after the accident, telling him that he thought his right ankle was broken right off the bat. He was scheduled to see his doctor this week, said sources close to the production, after which Paramount, the studio behind the film, will determine how long shooting will be delayed. The filming on Preikestolen must therefore be postponed by at least two months.

Cruise's other movies, ranging from 1986's "Top Gun" to 2017's "The Mummy" also saw the actor on serious action sequences, injuring the actor in one form or another.

"I was scared s--less", Cruise admitted of his "Mission: Impossible 5" stunt. The first film in the franchise was released in 1996, with "Mission: Impossible 2" in 2000, "Mission: Impossible 3" in 2006, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" in 2011 and the aforementioned "Rogue Nation" in 2015.

"Mission: Impossible 6" - co-starring Simon Pegg, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin - is due for release July 27 next year.
