Christopher McQuarrie To Direct Mission Impossible 6

Recommended Posts

Yea.  Fun fact was that was originally planned for the climax of the film, but since they were writing the script as they were filming it, it became the cold open instead

I didn't even realize until I just looked at the IMDB page that Michelle Monaghan is back in this one.  Wonder if it'll just be a cameo like in Ghost Protocol.

It's a real shame Ferguson's character inevitably has to die during the prologue to be replaced by Vanessa Kirby as the new love interest...

 

I hope not.  Hers was the best female foil in the series thus far.

 

Just now, Jay said:

Love interest?  Isn't he still married to whatherface from MI3/MI4?

 

Yeah Faust wasn't a love interest.  "Female foil" as a I used above seems more fitting to me.

They only really did the James Bond-esque "new love interest every movie" thing for the first two movies; he's just been a married guy ever since.

I've only watched 4 and 5 once, but I seem to remember that at the end of 4, he was basically coming to terms with the fact that he couldn't be with his wife, and in 5, didn't he say something like: "Run away with me" to Faust (or was it the other way around?)?

I've seen Rogue Nation three times and I don't remember that so if it did happen it wasn't a huge moment.

 

Or maybe I tune out that yucky mushy stuff ;)

 

I do seem to remember a moment where maybe he wanted her to join the IMF or something at the end?  I dunno, maybe it was up for interpretation

Either way, I'm still afraid Faust will die at the beginning of 6. It's almost a tradition in the franchise to kill members of the team at the beginning of the film!

 

The whole team in the first film.

Keri Russell's character in the third film.

Josh Holloway's character in the fourth film.

 

It's not looking good for Faust... :(

 

Or... Wait... Do we know if Renner is coming back? I don't seem to remember much talk about him... Maybe his character will be the one dying at the beginning of the film instead... :devil:

Very interesting interview with McQuarrie explaining the situation with Cruise's broken ankle:

 

http://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/christopher-mcquarrie-talks-tom-cruise-mission-impossible-6-injury/

 

Very encouraging news -- the release date will likely not be delayed. Also interesting to note that Cruise was supposed to hit the side of the building in the stunt (there was padding); he just hit it slightly wrong on that take. Apparently because Cruise powered through and didn't fall to the ground until he was out of the camera view, they'll likely be able to use the shot. (Also there were other takes before it, although McQuarrie says they weren't as good.)

 

This is also a tantalizing paragraph: 

 

Quote

 There’s so much action in this movie compared to the last Mission Impossible, and a lot of that is behind us. What we have in front of us is less complex, except for one sequence that is really intense. Fortunately for us, the one that’s really intense doesn’t happen to be intense on his ankle. We’re not worried about that. That’s the last part of his body we’re worried about when it gets to that sequence.

 

More action sounds great! I wonder what the really intense sequence is - gotta love McQuarrie's little teaser line ("that's the last part...")!

Here's the official synopsis for Mission Impossible MI2 MI3 MI4 MI5 MI6 FALLOUT:

 

Quote

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt and his IMF team along with some familiar allies in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. 

 

Apparently the film is so titled because Tom Cruise falls out of things.
