Tom Cruise training over a year for Mission: Impossible 6 ‘sequence’

March 22nd, 2017 by bash Comments

Tom Cruise has been training for approximately a year ahead of an audacious new “sequence” for Mission: Impossible 6.

Speaking to Collider, producer David Ellison said the feat will be “the most impressive and unbelievable thing” the actor has done on screen.

Referencing the actor’s impressive stunt on the edge of plane in the previous film, Ellison said: “It is all about entertaining an audience. Tom’s entire mantra for hanging on the side of the Burj Khalifa or the A380 or literally holding your breath for six minutes underwater to do the Taurus sequence is, in a world of massive [visual] effects, he said the audience can tell when it’s you on a green screen or when you’re actually doing it live.

And the tension, because the stunt is real, actually puts the audience where Ethan Hunt is where they are in the movie. He said that’s why he does it; it’s all about entertaining an audience and it makes the movie better.

As for Christopher McQuarrie, the director was quick to point out on Twitter that the planned feat was not a stunt but a “sequence“.

Stunts are a hobby,” he said.

More as we get it.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
