Tom Cruise jumps out of helicopter as Mission: Impossible 7 production resumes

Action man Tom Cruise is back to tackling daredevil stunts on camera after resuming production on his latest Mission: Impossible sequel.

The actor, who turned 58 last month (July 2020), recently returned to work on Mission: Impossible 7 in the U.K. after the coronavirus pandemic forced director Christopher McQuarrie to halt filming back in March, and last week (ends July 31, 2020), Cruise was spotted jumping out of a helicopter in the Oxfordshire countryside.

He was joined by two castmembers for the skydive, 10,000 feet up in the sky, reports the Daily Mail.

Mission: Impossible fans have come to expect at least one seriously impressive action sequence from Cruise in installments of the film franchise – in 2011’s Ghost Protocol, he climbed to the top of Dubai, United Arab Emirates’ sky-rise Burj Khalifa tower – the tallest building in the world – and in 2015’s Rogue Nation, he strapped himself to an airplane during take-off.

He also famously broke his ankle shooting Mission: Impossible 6 in London in 2017, when he slammed his foot into a wall after mistiming a building jump stunt.
