Along with being famed for going berserk on TV talk shows and heading up the world's most notorious cult, Tom Cruise is also known for performing the stunts in his films, and it looks like all didn't go to plan on the set of Mission Impossible 6.

The 55-year-old actor was spotted dangling from a crane by ropes whilst filming scenes for the upcoming action movie in London.

It came after Cruise misjudged a leap and went crashing into a brick wall.

Although he's filming scene as on-screen alter-ego Ethan Hunt, if recent news is to be believe we could soon also see the return of Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell.

The news of Top Gun 2's return was confirmed on the Australian morning show Sunrise. When pressed on the matter of a second Goose epic, Cruise said: "Yes, it's true. It's true."

Not only is the film happening, but there has also been a strong hint on when we could expect the release.

"You know what?" said Cruise. "I'm going to start filming it probably in the next year. It's definitely happening."

Cruise has never one to hide away from the fact he wanted a second film. Last year we were treated to another major hint when producer Jerry Bruckheimer shared a photo of him and Tom 'discussing' a second Top Gun.

The original film, titled from the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, saw Maverick (played by Cruise) sent to the school. However, his reckless attitude and cocky demeanour saw him distanced from other pilots, particularly Val Kilmer's character, Iceman.

Maverick isn't just competing to be the top fighter pilot; he is, of course, also fighting for the attention of his beautiful instructor, Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis).

At the end of the original movie, Maverick chose to become a Top Gun instructor - so the sequel could well be about him training the next generation of pilots. We'll just have to wait and see.
