Tom Cruise appears to have found a new iconic location to pull off his famous stuntwork.

On Saturday, Cruise, 61, was seen with a film crew at the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills as the Top Gun: Maverick star scaled the famed landmark.

The actor wore an all-black t-shirt, pants and shoes for the shoot and at one point flashed his abs from underneath his shirt. Largely thanks to his long-running Mission: Impossible series, Cruise has become synonymous with the dangerous stunts seen in the action-packed films.

Cruise last appeared onscreen in Mission: Impossible—Dead Reckoning, which brought back his character Ethan Hunt for a seventh entry in the long-running Mission: Impossible series. The movie made $172 million at the domestic box office and also received two nominations at the recent 96th Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Sound.

A title for the eighth film in the series has not yet been announced.

The actor has also been planning to film a movie in outer space for a number of years now as part of a project first announced by NASA back in 2020. Doug Liman, the filmmaker with whom Cruise made 2014's Edge of Tomorrow and 2017's American Made, is directing that movie. Universal Pictures executive Donna Langley shared in a 2022 BBC news interview that Cruise plans to become the "first civilian to do a space walk outside of the [International] Space Station" as part of the untitled film.

“We’ve been working on it diligently,” Cruise told Variety in July 2023, when asked for an update on the project. “We’ll see where we go.”
