“Mission: Impossible 6” will halt production in London for six weeks to three months to give Tom Cruise time to recover from an ankle injury sustained on set.
“During production on the latest ‘Mission: Impossible’ film, Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt,” Paramount said in a statement to newsmen.
They added that filming will “go on hiatus while Tom makes a full recovery,” but that the movie is still on track for its original release date — July 27, 2018.
“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.
Director Christopher McQuarrie added on Twitter on Wednesday that the star was “on the mend.”
