Tom Cruise fans hail ‘incredible’ stunt as Mission: Impossible actor parachutes into a Lake District field

By Louis Chilton

Tom Cruise has stunned fans after parachuting into a field in England’s Lake District while filming the next Mission: Impossible film.

The actor has been seen in various locations around the UK during production on the as-yet-unnamed seventh instalment in the popular action franchise.

Earlier this week, Cruise was filmed jumping out of a helicopter, deploying a parachute to land safely in a field.

Fans reacted positively to the footage, with one person describing the jump on social media as “incredible”.

“Wow he flaired at the last moment perfectly, professional,” wrote another fan.

Filming on the forthcoming Mission: Impossible 7 has bought Cruise to places such as Birmingham, Derbyshire and Bedfordshire in recent weeks.

Last month, British fans of Cruise were delighted as he visited a Birmingham curry house, ordering the same chicken tikka dish two times in one sitting.

Before that, an audacious stunt from the Derbyshire set of Mission: Impossible 7 was captured on camera by onlookers.

The sequence featured a train plunging into a quarry.

The film – which also stars Vanessa Kirby and Simon Pegg – is set to be released next year
