Tom Cruise's 'Mission: Impossible' release pushed back: Hollywood star plagued by delays and injurie

The news that Paramount Pictures has decided to postpone the eighth episode of "Mission: Impossible" by a year has put Tom Cruise in the midst of yet another box office delay.

Production was put on hold due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which compelled the studio to reschedule the release date from June 28, 2024 to May 23, 2025.

Production issues have already plagued Cruise in his movies, particularly in the action-packed "Mission: Impossible" series, in which he plays agent Ethan Hunt and does his own stunts. 

In 2017, during a stunt involving a building jump, Cruise fractured his ankle, bringing "Mission: Impossible – Fallout" to a complete stop.

 Naturally, he got the shot and returned to filming even though his wounds weren't completely healed

In 2017, director Christopher McQuarrie revealed to Empire that Cruise never actually made the jump and landed on the second building's roof for the stunt.

"He was always meant to crash into the building's side. It's what gives the stunt its energy," McQuarrie said in an August 2017 interview with Empire.

On the fourth try, he hit the building at a slightly different angle, and he broke his ankle."
