Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Paramount Pictures has confirmed Tom Cruise broke his ankle jumping between two buildings in London while filming a scene for Mission: Impossible 6 last weekend.

"During production on the latest Mission: Impossible film, Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt," the studio said in a statement about the 55-year-old actor. "Production will go on hiatus while Tom makes a full recovery. Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer."

"Thank you all for your support and concern. Tom is on the mend and MI6 is on track for 07.27.2018," director Christopher McQuarrie tweeted.

The film co-stars Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett and Alec Baldwin.
