While it’s not a secret that Tom Cruise does his own stunts in the Mission: Impossible franchise, the upcoming seventh installment will see him perform what’s billed as “the single most dangerous thing he’d ever done.”

In a recent interview with Empire, the actor revealed that he had to train for months in order to successfully ride a motorcycle off the edge of a cliff and pull his parachute — all in a matter of approximately six seconds. “If the wind was too strong, it would blow me off the ramp,” he said. “The helicopter [filming the stunt] was a problem, because I didn’t want to be hammering down that ramp at top speed and get hit by a stone. Or if I departed in a weird way, we didn’t know what was going to happen with the bike. I had about six seconds once I departed the ramp to pull the chute and I don’t want to get tangled in the bike. If I do, that’s not going to end well.”

Cruise also touched on the “huge relief” he felt when he and the production team were able to safely film Mission: Impossible 7 in the midst of COVID-19. “All those emotions were going through my mind,” he said, continuing, “I was thinking about the people I work with, and my industry. And for the whole crew to know that we’d started rolling on a movie was just a huge relief. It was very emotional, I gotta tell you.”

Mission: Impossible 7 premieres May 27, 2022.
