Hollywood actor Tom Cruise spent a year training for a sequence in the upcoming action spy thriller film Mission: Impossible 6, says producer David Ellison.
Ellison said it was “the most impressive” thing Cruise had done in the movie franchise, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“What Tom is doing in this movie I believe will top anything that’s come before,” Ellison told news portal Collider.
“It is absolutely unbelievable – he’s been training for a year. It is going to be, I believe, the most impressive and unbelievable thing that Tom Cruise has done in a movie, and he has been working on it since right after ‘Rogue Nation’ came out. It’s gonna be mind-blowing,” he added.
Explaining the reason behind Cruise’s willingness to undergo the extensive training and many practical stunts by himself, Ellison said: “It all comes from the best place. It is all about entertaining an audience”.

Tom Cruise had in July 2015, announced that he planned to go ahead with Mission: Impossible 6 during the release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The actor had promised that the sixth installment in the Mission Impossible franchise would have “more incredible set pieces, stunts… And what I think is a very entertaining and compelling story.”
Rogue Nation minted $195 million domestically and $682 million worldwide. The makers have opted to open Mission: Impossible 6 using the same late July slot that they used for Rogue Nation.
The filming of Mission: Impossible 6 will begin on April 10 in Paris, London and New Zealand. It is set to release on July 27, 2018.
