Director Christopher McQuarrie Shares New MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 Details

Mission: Impossible 5 director Chris McQuarrie has revealed a ton about the action sequel including details on Paula Patton & Maggie Q, the villain, when to expect a poster/trailer, and more!


Thanks to the variety of directors that have worked with superstar Tom Cruise on the Mission: Impossible franchise, each film has carried with it a distinct style reflective of the director helming the project, from Brian De Palma to John Woo to J.J. Abrams and most recently to Brad Bird. Now, it's the latest director, Chris McQuarrie, who will be adding his own personal touch, with a bit of a retro twist, to the upcoming sequel.

In an extensive Twitter Q&A session, conducted by McQuarrie earlier today, he was fairly candid while discussing the highly anticipated action sequel and revealing a ton of new details in the process. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • The first official teaser trailer will be arriving very soon as will the film's official name, poster, and the first promotional photos of the cast. 
  • The finale did not have to be reshot, it just had to be prepped. They are currently shooting it as we speak.
  • Both Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) and Maggie Q (Mission: Impossible 3) were asked to return, but unfortunately were unavailable. 
  • The film will pay homage to the original television series and have a bit of an "old-school" vibe throughout. 
  • Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) & Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible 1-4) will have expanded roles compared to the last outing, and Simon Pegg (Star Trek) will be getting his hands dirty. 
  • Sean Harris (Prometheus) will be playing the film's villain. 
  • McQuarrie broke his own personal record for footage recorded. 
  • And what should be no surprise to anyone, Tom Cruise & Jeremy Renner are both very proficient when it comes to action scenes. 
Check out the full recap below:
