Production of the seventh part of the highly successful spy film series ‘Mission: Impossible’ was delayed early this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the film producers are now back to business; the main hero of the franchise has even been caught on camera while making some jaw-dropping scenes for the movie.

58-year-old Tom Cruise made the impossible look possible as he was presumably captured jumping a motorbike off a giant ramp on the top of a mountain in Norway, according to footage shared by eyewitnesses and the broadcaster Norwegian NRK. The death-defying stunt is believed to be part of a scene for ‘Mission: Impossible 7', which will again star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, an American special agent. Shooting is currently continues in Norway following a five-month delay caused by coronavirus pandemic.

According to the shared footage, the stuntman in question, who was believed to be Cruise himself, was seen flying with a parachute following an awe-inspiring bounce as he let go of a motorbike. Last month, Cruise was reportedly captured filming a similar BMX trick in the UK, but the full scene has now unfolded on the top of Helsetkopen mountain, near Hellesylt.

The movie’s director Christopher McQuarrie also shared a pic of the giant construction on his Instagram page on Monday, captioning his post “Action… #MI7 Day 1”.

As the images of the stunt have started circulating across the net, the film series fans began to applaud Cruise’s audacity – while still referring to the actor as an “absolute madman”.

“The man is insane and I am very grateful”, one Twitter user wrote.

Following delays in production associated with the coronavirus crisis, the film is now expected to be released not early than 2021, presumably in November.
