MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 (2015): McQuarrie Holds Online Q&A

Tom Cruise Mission Impossible 3

McQuarrie Answers Fan’s Mission: Impossible 5 Questions. Christopher Mcquarrie recently conducted a twitter Q&A session in order to share new information regarding the highly anticipated fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible series. Spanning over nearly two decades, and helmed by a different director for each instalment, Paramount Pictures Mission: Impossible franchise has varied wildly in tone from film to film. With the franchise’s latest installment Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol bringing in the series its highest box office returns and yet another director on-board, Mission: Impossible fan’s interest in the film is at an all-time high. Mcquarrie recently took to twitter to satiate fan’s curiosity and reveal some interesting new details about the film.

Notable details include,

Mcquarrie claimed that despite reports to the contrary, production was not shut down in order to rewrite the film’s ending. Instead the crew needed the additional time to “prep” for the ending. Shooting in 48 fps was a factor for the additional prep work.

Fan favorite tech-guru Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) will spend more time in the field in this movie and “get his hands dirty.”

Speaking of expanded roles, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames characters will have more to do relative to their roles in Ghost Protocol.

Paula Patton and Maggie Q won’t be returning to the film due to scheduling conflicts.

The new film will be closer in tone to the original television series as well as Brian De Palma’s 1996 installment.

Anxious fans can expect the debut of the film’s first trailer “very soon.”
