Tom Cruise films hair-raising Mission: Impossible stunt on Blackfriars Bridge

Tom Cruise filming Mission Impossible 6 stunts

Tom Cruise brought part of central London to a standstill as he sprinted across the roof of a rail bridge for the latest Mission: Impossible movie.

The 55-year-old actor braved the chilly January temperatures and was spotted sprinting over the Thames, with a low-flying helicopter filming his progress.

Cruise is famous for doing his own stunts, which have included hanging off the side of an airplane in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation in 2015 and scaling the world's tallest building - Dubai's Burj Khalifa - in 2011's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Patrol.

Christopher McQuarrie, who previously helmed Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, is once again writing and directing the sequel, which is now set for a July 27, 2018 release.

"On the fourth try, he hit the building at a slightly different angle and he broke his ankle". Traffic was halted on nearby Blackfriars road bridge and boats kept from the area while the shoot for Mission: Impossible 6 took place.

Reports in the U.S. past year suggested the movie could see its release date postponed as Cruise recovered.

Cruise is famed for performing his own stunts.

But McQuarrie insisted the sixth instalment of the action franchise remains set for 27 July.
