TOM CRUISE BROKE HIS ANKLE … In ‘MI:6’ Stunt Gone Wrong

Tom Cruise broke his lower leg while playing out a trick for the new ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie … also, generation is formally on stop.

A rep for Paramount Pictures – the studio behind ‘MI:6’ – tells TMZ … “Tom Cruise broke his lower leg while playing out a trick. Generation will go on rest while Tom makes a full recuperation.”

The rep goes ahead to state that the film is still on timetable to be discharged next July.

As we announced … Tom attempted and fizzled the questionable trick no less than twice – and one of those circumstances apparently put him out for the count.

Get well soon, Tom.
