“It’s true, yeah it’s true,” he said while beaming from ear-to-ear. “You know what? I’m going to start filming it probably in the next year. I know, it’s happening, it is definitely happening.”
And much to the delight of the news show hosts, Cruise seemed to be in great spirits over the excited reactions to the sequel announcement.
“You’re the first people that I’ve really said it [to],” he added. “This is going to happen.”
The film star also opened up about filming his own stunts and admitted that initially being a part of those memorable plane stunts wasn’t as easy as he may have anticipated.
“When you first start flying you get sick, like properly sick, like fill a bag sick,” he explained before adding that he “couldn’t wait to fly” regardless.
He also recalled his very first stunt, with the help of a flight instructor named Bozo, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Well then, let’s hope Cruise’s stunts for the highly anticipated sequel go down (or shall we say up?) a little better the second time around!
