Tom Cruise just confirmed and revealed that he is now recovering after breaking his ankle doing a stunt for his upcoming film, "Mission: Impossible 6". With this, his fans said that accidents can't keep the actor down as his devotion and commitment to his films were indeed present.
It can be recalled that Cruise hit a wall as he leaped off the top of a roof while shooting "Mission: Impossible 6" in London just the previous month. Lately, when he was asked about the progress of his broken ankle, the actor revealed that his injury is doing well and he also thanked all the people who gave well-wishes and messages.
With regards also to his injury, according to PEOPLE, Cruise also promised to give updates as well as footage and X-rays from the incident. Also, he said that he will resume filming in a couple of weeks on "Mission: Impossible 6" after the accident set back the production of the latest installment of the popular film series.
Reports claimed that Tom did not put so much attention on his injury as the entertainer instilled a sense of humor about suffering the injury. His first reaction in describing his injury was: "We better have been rolling on that."
The actor hurt himself while shooting a sequence in which he jumped off the top of a building and careened into a neighboring wall at a wrong angle. After three previous jumps, Cruise suffered the injury in the shooting stunt. The moment his ankle was broken, one can see it directly on his face which led to the rescheduling of the remaining shots.
After he was injured, Mail Online reported that Paramount, the studio making "Mission: Impossible 6" issued a statement telling that the production will go on a hiatus while Cruise is fully recovering. The company also extended Tom's gratitude to those who gave their support in the wake of the injury.
"Mission: Impossible 6" which will be released next summer stars Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, and Henry Cavill. Tom Cruise, on the other hand, is currently doing promotions for his other latest film, "American Made".
