Christopher McQuarrie may return to direct Mission: Impossible 6

11.19.2015

We may be on the verge of a first for the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise as Variety reports that Christopher McQuarrie, director of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION, is eyeing a return to write and possibly direct the next installment of the series. As MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION has proved to be a great success for Paramount, it's completely understandable that they would like to stay in business with McQuarrie.

Variety's sources say that talks are progressing and that the studio hopes to get production on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 underway by next August. Tom Cruise will obviously be returning to star in the film, but the studio is also holding an option for Rebecca Ferguson to return as Ilsa Faust. Ferguson's character was one of many very welcome surprises held within MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION, but even still, McQuarrie has given himself an awfully high bar to overcome if he hopes to even match Rebecca Ferguson's ROGUE NATION storyline.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION will be released on Blu-ray/DVD on December 15, 2015.

Would you be open to Christopher McQuarrie returning for MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6, or would you prefer to see someone new take the helm?

What I've liked about this series is that it has managed to bring in new directors with every installment to keep things fresh. McQuarrie gave us a kick ass installment that was probably closest to the first film in tone but it was better than the first movie and probably even the third movie. Ghost Protocol is still my favorite. The less said about two the better. I would be okay with McQuarrie returning but I think I would rather see a new director take over, I don't really know who though.

Guess I'm gonna be the sole Debby Downer here. In my book M:I5 is second worst of the series. It had three pretty good action sequences, but sadly everything in between was so damn formulaic, every 101 spy trope was in it. Not to mention that after the last big action scene the movie goes on for another thirty-some minutes without much excitement until the last five or so.
"Formulaic" is also a good word to describe Jack Reacher. So, yeah, pass on McQuarrie.

Rogue Nation and Mcquarrie are great but ive really enjoyed how its a new director for each installment, still this is nothing new - Abrams and Bird were offered another one but declined due to the established formula. At the end of the day whatever the outcome we ll win either way.

also Brad Bird is a better director than Mcquerrie not saying that I didnt enjoy RN but MI4 had that "umph" factor.

I want to see MI4's Hispanic Girl actor make a comeback in the sixth film. Also maybe someone from the first film. That would be cool. And more agents who are at the same caliber as Ethan Hunt like that LOST guy they showed in the 4th film.

No

Mcquarrie is awesome, but I'd rather they keep getting a new director for each one. I really like that.
Personally I would LOVE to see a Tarantino Mission Impossible movie.

Sounds like that they might be making MI:6 a direct follow-up to MI:RN, especially when Ilsa Faust is rumored to return. Hopefully, that'll mean they'll delve deeper into the Syndicate, and really explore the extent of their power and influence all over the world.

Up to this point I have really liked the uniqueness of each installment. De Palma had his thing, Woo had his thing, J.J. and Brad Bird did their thing. Christopher McQuarrie though, would actually be the first director (since Brian De Palma) I'd want to see return for the series. I thought Rogue Nation was the most well-balanced and cinematic Mission: Impossible (at least since the first one). There are other directors out there I'd love to see take a stab at the franchise though, but the ones

There are other directors out there I'd love to see take a stab at the franchise though, but the ones that would really excite me, like Bong joon Ho, or Chad Stahelski, are keeping busy. If they don't go with McQuarrie they ought to try someone with a really different bent. Maybe get Joe Carnahan for another go round (another director who almost directed the third movie).

I enjoyed M:I 5 a lot. I'd love to see him back. On the other hand, I agree with anomaly7, each M:I movie does benefit from having a different director.

McQuarrie did a great job, but I really think this series benefits by having a new director with each film. I think Fincher was rumored to do one at some point, and I'd still like to see that. Or maybe a director Cruise has worked with before. Maybe Doug Liman who has experience in the genre by directing the first Bourne movie. Can you imagine if they got Spielberg to direct a Mission: Impossible film? That would be awesome.

I know one of the best features of this franchise is having a different director helm each new film so that every new sequel feels different and fresh (and it has worked), but I would be more than fine with McQuarrie returning to direct for another entry. Rogue Nation (in my opinion) was the best blockbuster film of the summer (next to Fury Road) and arguably the best entry of the series (thus far). So if Cruise and McQuarrie can deliver the goods again, then why the hell not.

lol so many caveats in your opinions man.

This is the best (not including....) movie ever (next to so and so) and the director is probably the most influential (if not counting so and so) and has provided the most entertaining (after "insert movie")
