Tom Cruise on `Mission' outside tallest spire

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates Cruise was spotted tethered to a line near the top of the nearly half-mile-high (828-meter-high) Burj Khalifa during stunt filming for the latest installment of the "Misssion: Impossible" series.

Local media reports on Tuesday included photos of the black-clad Cruise as he was striding over the front of the glass-and-steel spire on Monday.

The new film, "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" will prominently feature scenes from Dubai as well as Moscow and Vancouver. It's scheduled for release in December 2011.
