The Mission: Impossible franchise has become a consistent showcase for at least one wild stunt that Tom Cruise has made a decision to do himself.

Actor Tom Cruise body-slammed into a brick wall when a high-flying stunt he was filming for "Mission Impossible 6" went awry, according to a video released Sunday.

As Radar's video of the superstar actor shows, he performed the unsafe stunt on Sunday but wound up limping afterwards after landing hard.

The shoot is happening in London and Cruise is seen making a big leap between two buildings.

The video appears to show Cruise hitting the building hard, and then limping away tenderly after getting back on his feet. One of them notices and helps to maneuver him back to the platform, where he is then guided off set. While the complete details are a bit murky at time of reporting, what's clear is that Cruise's injury could affect the filming schedule for Mission: Impossible 6 and, furthermore, it could affect the film itself. The extent of his injuries are still unknown.

Tom is now on set in London and he was wearing a safety harness during the time of the accident. His rep has not responded to a request for comment. However, as mentioned, the situation does seem serious and that could have a very real impact on the filming process. We wish Tom Cruise the best, and hope he recovers quickly.
