There has been no mission (read: stunt) that has been impossible for Tom Cruise, and with Mission: Impossible 7 he has undoubtedly taken the ‘deadly standard’ of stunts a level above. We’ve all heard the stories of how Tom rarely uses a stunt-double for any of his stunts, and this has been a template for all of his movies.
Today, the mess of Tom Cruise and the team starting the shoot of Mission: Impossible 7 was all over social media. Now a video of the same has been doing rounds. In a very zoomed-out video, we can see Tom Cruise (what we believe to be) riding a bike on a racing plank set on the edge of a mountain.
That’s not it, he races the bike on the plank and jumps from the cliff with the bike and opens up the parachute mid-air. Post the very famous plane stunt in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise indeed takes the crown with this scene. Watch the scene to believe it for yourself.
Director Christopher McQuarrie recently took to Instagram to announce that shooting of MI7 has officially begun. He also shared a breathtaking photo from the set in which an unidentified man was spotted atop a scaffolding with the picturesque mountain view engulfing the background. He captioned the photo, “Action… #MI7 Day 1,” hinting that the production’s first day back in full swing.
Fans around the world are eagerly waiting for MI7 to be released in theatres. It seems the team is now ready more ready than ever to provide the thrilling, action-packed feats the series is known for. When the shooting of the film was getting delayed due to the pandemic, images of actress Rebecca Ferguson receiving weapons training was revealed. And just like the previous Mission Impossible films, actor Tom Cruise can be expected to continue doing his own stunts, the cast and crew no doubt have more daring secrets up their sleeves and behind the scenes.
Apart from Tom Cruise and Ferguson, the film also stars Ving Rhames, Simon Peg, Vanessa Kirby and Esai Morales. The film is slated to release at November 19, 2021.
