The actor will reprise his role of fighter pilot Maverick more than 30 years after the original blockbuster was released.

Arriving at the UK premiere of his latest film, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, he revealed he has already been filming for three days.

He said: “The reason I’m doing it is all these years people have said ‘we would like another one’ and we finally figured out a tone and a script that I thought was worthy for those audiences.

“So we are all going to work very hard and make it as great as we can.

“We have shot for three days already and it’s going to be a long process.

“It’s a very technically complex film to make and the in-air sequences are not to be believed. It’s going to be challenging.”

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is released in UK cinemas on July 25.
