Mission: Impossible 7 Director Teases Groundbreaking New Tom Cruise Stunt
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One director Christopher McQuarrie has revealed that he and star Tom Cruise are developing a brand new, groundbreaking stunt.
The pair first collaborated on 2008’s Valkyrie, which was co-written by McQuarrie. The next time they worked together was a minor overlap three years later, when McQuarrie performed script revisions on the fifth Mission: Impossible film, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
However slight, this collaboration came at the perfect time for both creators, as it was during the period that Cruise was developing his taste for performing real-life, incredibly dangerous stunts on camera.
on his official Twitter account, McQuarrie responded to a fan question about his collaborations with Tom Cruise.
The fan, whose screen name is Amanda Hunt, asked if there are any stunts that he and Tom Cruise want to do but have proven to be impossible to pull off.
The Top Gun: Maverick writer’s intriguing response was to share a story from the past week, saying that “On Friday morning, I told Tom that the technology to film a specific stunt simply did not exist,” going on to say that thanks to their skilled team, “by six o’clock it existed.”
