‘Mission Impossible 5’ News: Tom Cruise hanging 5000 feet in air from plane

Tom Cruise was caught “pulling off a death-defying stunt yet again” when a YouTube clip landed that showed the Mission Impossible 5 star strapped to a moving plane at 5,000 feet, filming a dangerous scene for the new film.
Tom-Cruise-and-Ving-Rhames-in-Paramounts-Mission-Impossible-2Cruise is holding onto the door of an Airbus A400M Atlas while the military airplane was flying over the British countryside at 250mph. Wearing a tuxedo as his character Ethan Hunt, he suspended himself high in the air only with two safety harnesses.
Fans remember Cruise running down the world’s tallest building in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (check out the photo below) and the he’s going further. “It’s easily the most outrageous stunt Tom has ever done,” a source told Express. “When it was all over, the crew were clapping and cheering!”

Last December, Cruise talked to Graham Norton about doing his own stunts in movies. “People do say no, but as an actor you bring everything, physically and emotionally, to a character,” he explained. “I’m able to do them (stunts). I’ve trained for 30 years doing things like that.”

Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is re-teaming with Cruise to helm this outing.

The new Mission Impossible will co-star Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, all confirmed to be reprising their respective roles. Rebecca Ferguson is the new leading lady with Alec Baldwin cast as a top level government official.

Mission Impossible 5 arrives in theaters Christmas Day, 2015.
