McQuarrie talks Mission: Impossible 6

February 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Christopher McQuarrie has said fans of the Mission: Impossible franchise can expect big changes in the forthcoming sixth film.

The movie, which starts filming in Paris this April, will also deal with the question of ‘who is Ethan Hunt?’.

I’ve seen five of these movies, and I don’t know who Ethan Hunt is,” McQuarrie told Empire Magazine. “One movie sort of dealt with his personal life; the other movies are about people speculating what’s really going on in Ethan’s head. I want to know who Ethan is in this movie, I want an emotional journey for the character, and Tom [Cruise] really embraced it.

As for the infamous action piece openings of each movie, even that is likely to change this time round.

It starts in a very unconventional way,” McQuarrie continued. “It does not start with action. That was the hardest pitch of this movie.”

Mission: Impossible 6 arrives into cinemas on 27 July 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
