Tom Cruise has been filmed driving a motorcycle off a mountainside ramp before launching a parachute on the set of Mission: Impossible 7.

All in a day’s work, hey Tom?

The star was seen pulling off the jaw-dropping stunt at Helsetkopen mountain near Hellesylt, Norway yesterday.

In the footage, Tom drives along a man-made, ski jump-like ramp, before hurtling into the sky, separating from the motorcycle and plummeting into thin air, as a helicopter and a drone trail him.

After a few seconds of seemingly flying, Tom launches his parachute, and floats to the bottom.

The star did the jump four times, according to onlookers.

This man is 58 – we repeat, 58 – and an inspiration to us all, regardless of age.

Director Christopher McQuarrie also teased a photo of the stunt yesterday, alongside the caption: ‘Action…’

Filming on M:I7 resumed last month after months of delays due to coronavirus.

Production was then halted once again after a motorcycle caught fire during a ‘miscalculated’ stunt also involving a ramp, according to a report in The Sun.

It’s not the first time Tom – whose occasional non-action roles include Eyes Wide Shut and Vanilla Sky – has been spotted doing his own stunts for the upcoming movie. He was previously seen filming a fight scene while wearing a harness and a face mask.

Curious.

Still, he needs to pull out all the stops if he’s to better his famous stunt from the last but one Mission: Impossible film: hanging out the side of a plane.

The thought of it still makes us quite sick to the stomach.

In other recent Tom-Cruise-has-the-most-surreal-life news, the star was seen arriving in London via helicopter a few times this summer.

He piloted one over the English capital in July and August, and parachuted out of one the same month. As you do.
