    Production has shut down on "Mission: Impossible 6" due to star Tom Cruise's broken ankle. Paramount Pictures said Wednesday that production will go on hiatus while Cruise makes a full recovery.

    Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt for the film during its London-based shoot.

    TMZ posted a video Sunday that showed a tethered Cruise leaping to a building, hitting its side and then crawling over the top and running away. After he finished the take, Cruise is seen limping, though he was able to rappel back to the building he jumped from.

    The 55-year-old actor is known for performing many of his own stunts.
