Mission: Impossible 6 could end up being delayed after Tom Cruise was left with broken bones following a failed stunt for the upcoming blockbuster.

According to The Sun, production on the movie will have to stop for up to four months to allow Cruise to recover from his bone injuries.

In Mission: Impossible 6 crews stars opposite returning stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris, as well as newcomers Henry Cavill and Angela Bassett. Tom did serious damage and will need months to recover.

The Hollywood star, 55, appeared to injure his leg jumping from one building to another as he filmed the action movie in London. "The movie's bosses had no choice other than to postpone the filming", the publication said.

This looks to be one of the more tame stunts Cruise has done in recent years. In fact, he has always been game to up the stakes in his action set-pieces especially with the Mission: Impossible franchise. The first film in the franchise was released in 1996, with "Mission: Impossible 2" in 2000, "Mission: Impossible 3" in 2006, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" in 2011 and the aforementioned "Rogue Nation" in 2015.

Business Insider contacted Paramount Pictures and Cruise's rep for an update on his condition and did not receive an immediate response. Fans are advised to take this news with a grain of salt.

The film was scheduled to hit the theatres in summer 2018, but it is believed that the release date could be pushed back to Christmas due to the incident.
