A year ago’s Mission: Impossible—Fallout was a transcending achievement. The best activity film since 2014’s Mad: Max: Fury Road, it set an establishment record, piling on $791 million at the overall film industry. It denoted the first run through a chief had returned for various portions of the arrangement, and the overwhelmingly positive gathering has earned producer Christopher McQuarrie two more go-arounds.
The precarious thing? In the course of the last three highlights, star Tom Cruise has scaled the tallest structure on the planet, clung to the side of a climbing plane and dangled from a helicopter. Regarding wow factor, where the hellfire do you go from that point? How would you keep on increasing present expectations? We’re asking since we straight-up have no clue. Luckily, McQuarrie comprehends this problem and is wanting to convey for M:I parts 7 and 8.
“I pitched the idea of making two movies, and now I have to justify why it’s two movies,” he told Empire in its new John Wick issue. “You’ve got to earn that. You’ve got to make something that swallows the last three movies whole. I’m freaked out now. We’ve talked ourselves into something. Holy shit.”
A few fans of Mission: Impossible have energetically prodded that Cruise’s Ethan Hunt should make a beeline for space and get his long-late Moonraker minute. Fortunately, that isn’t likely to work out.
“Here’s the problem with going to the moon: How do you fall from the moon?” McQuarrie said. Perhaps Cruise wouldn’t fall, per se. Maybe it’d be more like zero-G floating in style?
