A new report reveals how much Tom Cruise’s stunt insurance cost for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, and it’s much less than you think.

According to a recent report, Tom Cruise’s stunt insurance for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One was quite expensive. Dead Reckoning Part One, which has been said to be Cruise’s final installment in the series, was released in theaters in July 2023. Dead Reckoning Part Two, which is almost through filming, is slated for release on June 28, 2024. The motorbike cliff jump and a significant train accident sequence were two of the most daring stunts Cruise has ever performed for the most current film.

A recent report from The Wrap reveals how much Cruise’s insurance cost for Mission: Impossible 7’s stunts. Typically, the total insurance costs for a film – which covers everything from the cast, property damage, props, sets, wardrobe, and equipment – ranges from 1% to 2.5% of the budget. Since Dead Reckoning Part One’s budget was $291 million, this would put its insurance costs between $2.9 million and $4.4 million. However, because of Cruise’s unusually dangerous stunts, additional coverage was likely required, which “can cost 5% to 20% of policy limits and require a deductible of up to 10%.”

Dead Reckoning Part Two, which features more of Cruise’s riskiest actions to date, probably required a second sizable insurance coverage. Beginning in March 2022, production on the second installment shifted to the Adriatic Sea by December to film on the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier. Although the specific types of sequences that were filmed there are unknown, Part Two does include some underwater action, as revealed by director Christopher McQuarrie. These scenes may give Cruise the chance to break Kate Winslet’s previous breath-holding record from Avatar: The Way of Water, which she set with Rogue Nation.

There have been numerous airborne feats that Cruise has performed on the set of Part Two, which is now on hold due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. He has been seen paragliding over the top of a mountain in England and hanging off the outside of an aircraft in South Africa. Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’s budget grew to about $300 million as a result of the numerous production delays brought on by the epidemic, which in turn raised its insurance expenses. However, any money invested to ensure Cruise’s antics in Part Two, just like in the case of Part One, should be a wise investment.
