Tom Cruise was recently spotted leaving the London helipad after filming Mission: Impossible 8. The Top Gun actor sported a gray cable knit jumper and jeans and wore his hair in a different long style. He struggled to keep his long hair in place as it flowed in the wind while he joked with staff about needing to tie it up.
Cruise is currently filming the eighth installment of the popular franchise, which is scheduled for release in June 2024. He will reprise his role as superspy Ethan Hunt and perform his own stunts in the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.
Despite playing the franchise’s protagonist character for over two decades, Cruise intends to make more Mission: Impossible movies well into his 80s. His drive is inspired by the Indiana Jones star, Harrison Ford, who led the last release—Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, 42 years after starring as the title character in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Cruise called Ford a “legend” at the Australian premiere of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One months ago while praising the veteran actor’s longevity in Hollywood. “I’ve got 20 years to catch up with him. I hope to keep making ‘Mission: Impossible’ films until I’m his age,” Cruise said.
Cruise is known for performing his own stunts, and he has shocked fans with some of his most dangerous attempts in the Mission: Impossible franchise. In Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Cruise rode a motorbike off the top of a 4,000-foot cliff before opening his parachute and hitting the ground.
