Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt on the set of the upcoming Mission: Impossible 6, causing production on the film to go on hiatus while the actor recovers, Paramount Pictures says.

The 55-year-old, known for performing his own death-defying stunts, was injured as he attempted a jump between buildings while attached to cables but fell short and slammed into a concrete wall.

Reports reveal that Cruise ended up walking away from the filming site with two broken bones in his ankle, and as a result, "Mission: Impossible 6" has to do away with a lot of rescheduling. He has stated that if anyone can come back from an injury that is Cruise. Despite the setback, he insisted that the film is on track to make its July 2018 release date.

Following the stunt-gone-wrong, Paramount has, unsurprisingly, chose to halt production on the film until Cruise makes a full a recovery.

We wish him to recover soon and we'll keep you informed of anything we find out.

And yes, you will see Cruise's real injury in it. If that's true - appreciating it's The Sun we're talking about - then that puts next summer's release date in doubt.

McQuarrie - who directed Cruise in Mission: Impossible 5 (2015) and Jack Reacher (2012) - posted a link to an article with British film magazine Empire in which he said his star was "in very good spirits". And Cruise may be out of action for around that time after the stunt failed horribly. It is set for release on July 27th 2018.

The sixth "Mission: Impossible" movie comes to United Kingdom cinema screens on 27 July 2018.

Production commenced on the film in Paris in April; aside from London, other filming locations include New Zealand, India and Norway. "When I started producing 'Mission: Impossible, ' I started developing different action around what I could physically train to do".

He was filmed hanging from the outside of an Airbus 400 as it takes off in "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation".
