They are filming Mission Impossible 4 in Dubai right now. Our friend and local Dubai photographer Gerald Donovan took this photo of none other than Tom Cruise jumping off the Burj Khalifa, formerly known as the Burj Dubai:
They've been busy filming stuff for Mission Impossible 4 on the Burj Khalifa for the last 10 days or so. Not sure if you've seen any of the pics, but here's a picture of Tom Cruise swinging around that I took on Friday.
Gerald has plenty of contacts at the tallest skyscraper in the world, so I believe that this is Tom Cruise and not a stuntman. But in case you had any doubts, here you have a close up, as previously reported by Gawker:
Cruise is known for doing a lot of his stunts, but I didn't expect him to get this high. Of course, Cruise is also known for doing a lot of other crazy things and I never expected him to squeak and jump on Oprah's sofa. [Thanks Gerald!]
