Tom Cruise is one Hollywood actor who repeatedly has denied using doubles for performing stunts. He continues to amaze audiences across the globe and transforms himself with every movie.
Cruise has made his name in the global market as a superstar by working in a wide range of films in a variety of genres, however, has made a special place in action films.
The reason why Tom Cruise is mostly synonymous with actions is that because he has continued doing bold stunts, all on his own that too without stuntmen in movies. When it comes to doing daredevil action sequences, he gets crazy even if the directors try to stop him from risking his own life while being on the screen.
After performing some crazy stunts like climbing the Burj Khalifa, jumping off buildings, and flying helicopters. Tom is ready to perform something even madder in his next project.
According to reports, Tom Cruise is now learning to fly a World War II military plane for dogfight scenes in the upcoming instalment of the Mission Impossible series, Mission: Impossible 8.
The Top Gun actor was seen flying a 1943 Boeing Stearman Model 75 in the United Kingdom at the Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire.
Performing actions sequence the Boeing plane which has two movie gears on its wings is said to be filmed in a chase with another wartime plane, something that is in Tom’s comfort zone.
“Tom had started to learn to fly a Boeing Stearman biplane earlier this year for a major stunt scene in ‘Mission: Impossible 8’. It’s a highly skilled task but as usual, he has no plans to cut any corners or bring in a stuntman,” a film source said to an English Tabloid.
The source further added, “Filming has only just wrapped on Mission: Impossible 7 but Tom has not given himself a break. And trying to film jaw-dropping scenes with an 80-year-old plane is particularly dangerous.”
For the uninformed, Tom Cruise is a trained pilot and it is not the first time that he had flown a plane, but flying a plane from the World War II era might be something of a new experience for him.
Tom, who plays the special agent Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible series, recently finished the filming of the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7 film. The eighth film was made in quick succession and will be released in 2023 with a whole list of other films like Top Gun: Maverick releasing before it.
Well, looks like we're in for some crazy action once again, and we have only Tom to thank for it.
