Tom Cruise's broken ankle has brought a halt to "Mission: Impossible 6" production in London, but the movie is still expected to be released on July 27, 2018.

Last weekend ABC News reported that it received video of Cruise jumping from a platform and falling short of the building he was trying to reach. The actor caught himself with his hands and then limped away, the network stated.

Paramount Pictures confirmed that Cruise was injured on set while performing a stunt. The stunt's location was at the Baynard House in Blackfriars, Empire reported. The film will be shutdown anywhere from six weeks to three months while Cruise is on the mend, Variety reported.

"Tom is great. He's in very good spirits," "Mission: Impossible" director Christopher McQuarrie told Empire, confirming that the actor injured his right ankle. "He's feeling great about the movie. Very excited in general.

"When I went to see him, the first thing he said when I walked in the room was, 'dude, my ankle’s broken.' Without missing a beat, I said, 'there’s a silver lining to this cloud. We just don't know what it is yet.'"

McQuarrie added, per Empire, that initially, everyone thought Cruise pretended to be injured during the filming and only later came to realize the actor was really hurt.

"Tom got up and hobbled off-camera and we looked at it and went, wow, he really sold that one," McQuarrie told Empire. "It looks like that hurt. It turns out him breaking an ankle is almost indistinguishable from him pretending to break an ankle. My immediate concern was, how is Tom? What is the extent of his injury?

"Today, we got the full prognosis and found out that it was actually fine, could have been much worse. And everything was OK. I’m not at all concerned about what this is going to do to our release date. The good news is, Tom is going to make a full recovery," he added.
