Tom Cruise broke his lower leg while playing out a trick for the new 'Mission: Impossible' motion picture ... what's more, creation is on hold.
A rep for Paramount Pictures - the studio behind "M:I6" - tells TMZ ... "Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt. Production will go on hiatus while Tom makes a full recovery." The rep goes ahead to state that the motion picture is still on timetable to be discharged next July. As TMZ detailed ... Tom attempted and fizzled the questionable trick no less than twice - and one of those circumstances obviously put him out for the count.
Get well soon, Tom.
