Video of The Day: Tom Cruise Scales The Burj Khalifa
Two weeks ago we posted some images of Tom Cruise performing his own stunts for Mission Impossible 4, in which he scaled The Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure ever built. Located in Dubai the building stands at 2,717 feet in height but that didn’t stop the actor from convincing producers to allow him to risk his life so he could satisfy his daredevil fetish.
Above you can see the latest photo and a video below of Tom Cruise sitting on top of the world.
Mission Impossible 4 will have Cruise reuniting with Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg, to form a new team with Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Holloway. The sequel will be directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles), who’ll be taking a leap from the genre of animation with this project. JJ Abrams and Cruise will both produce and of course Paramount will distribute. Mission Impossible 4 is scheduled to hit theaters on December 16, 2011.
