Back in August, Tom Cruise had to take a break from filming because of an ankle injury on the set of “Mission Impossible 6.” After a seven-week hiatus the actor is back at work, and leaked pictures from the set shows him performing yet another stunt.

On the first day of his return, Cruise had no intention of slowing things down. Leaked pictures from the production set at Brentwood, Essex posted on Daily Mail show the actor performing a helicopter stunt, and was reportedly spotted driving a truck later.

Cruise insists on doing the big stunts in his films himself. Now, the 55-year-old continues to take the risks to deliver realistic scenes for his fans.

The scene he filmed on the first day back on set involved a low-flying helicopter. At some point, the helicopter hops onto a large truck, and Cruise was later seen driving this truck.

The actor was sporting a smart black outfit for this scene. He was similarly dressed last August when he injured his ankle. He was supposed to jump from one building to another, but Cruise fell short a few inches in his leap and hit the side of the building after the jump. He crawled back to the top of the building, but had injured his ankle with the stunt. The actor appears to have recovered from that injury now, and he’s back on his feet to film more stunts.

The title of “Mission Impossible 6” and its plot haven’t been announced yet. The film is being directed by Christopher McQuarrie and is slated to be released on July 27, 2018 in the US. The release date for Australia is yet to be announced.
