In earlier movies, the actor, who plays espionage expert Ethan Hunt, has been seen free solo climbing, scaling the Burj Khalifa, clinging onto the side of an airborne plane and more. So it's hardly surprising that he's performing more death-defying tricks this time, too.
On Monday (April 26), McQuarrie took to Instagram to post a screenshot of a monitor that depicts Cruise hanging off the side of a moving vehicle. While the snap isn't the easiest to make out, the filmmaker's caption suggests that Cruise's Hunt is in the midst of hoisting himself up onto the roof of a speeding train.
"What would Mission be without a bit of local color?" he wrote alongside the image.
"Our sincerest thanks to North Yorkshire Moors Railway, the Office for Road and Rail, Eddie Draper, Riley's & GB Rail Freight and, of course, the incredibly lovely and welcoming people of Levisham.
"We had an amazing week (and remarkably fair weather) in fabulous Yorkshire," McQuarrie concluded, before hashtagging MI7 and its follow-up MI8. "We'll be back for one last bit of mischief in short order."
While the plot of the movie remains relatively under wraps, it's known that Cruise will be seen on screen opposite Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby and Ving Rhames, who will be reprising their roles as Ilsa Faust, Benji Dunn, Erika Sloane, the White Widow and Luther Stickell, respectively.
New additions include Hayley Atwell, Indira Varma, Pom Klementieff, Cary Elwes, Rob Delaney, Mark Gatiss and Shea Whigham, as well as Ozark's Esai Morales – who stepped in after X-Men's Nicholas Hoult had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
Mission: Impossible 7 currently has a scheduled release date of May 27, 2022.
