Tom Cruise's 'Mission: Impossible 6' Stunt Will ”Top Anything That's Come Before”

Tom Cruise's 'Mission: Impossible 6' Stunt Will ”Top Anything That's Come Before”
From Slashfilm - March 20, 2017

The Mission: Impossible movies dont need city-leveling CGI set pieces or characters created entirely through motion capture. They already have the greatest special effect of all time. That special effect is called Tom Cruise. Ageless, fearless, and seemingly built in a laboratory towithstand stunts that would have (sane) actors calling for their doubles, Cruise has upped the ante with each Mission: Impossible movie, finding new and exciting ways to risk his life for the sake of our Oohs and Aahs. He will one day die on a movie set at the age of 91, looking like hes 45, with a smile on severed head. He probably tried to surf on a helicopter blade.

Anyway, Mission: Impossible 6 will apparently feature a stunt so extreme that Cruise trained for a year so he could pull it off.

Collider spoke withSkydance Media CEO and Mission: Impossible series producerDavid Ellison, who explained thatsixth film in the series is going out of its way to top the insane, show-stopping stunts seen in the previous two movies:

Were thrilled. [director Christopher McQuarrie]is back, obviously, writing and directing afterRogue Nation. We could not be more excited about the characterHenry Cavills going to play. And I will say after the Burj [Khalifa] we thought it was going to be impossible to top that stunt, and then Tom did the A380 for the plane. What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything thats come before. It is absolutely unbelievablehes been training for a year. It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right afterRogue Nationcame out. Its gonna be mind-blowing.
