Are we still doing #SquadGoals? Because if so, I think I’ve found mine. Earlier today, Mission: Impossible 6 director Christopher McQuarrie posted a photo of himself hanging out with series stalwart Tom Cruise and dashing newcomer Henry Cavill against the Eiffel Tower, raising the bar for family vacation photos everywhere. If I worked in the photo department at the local Walgreens and saw this in someone’s film roll, I would put a sign up on the door that said “No More Eiffel Tower Photos” for everyone to see. What’s the point? They’ll never be this cool.

Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie seems to have developed a pretty strong working relationship with Tom Cruise. In addition to working with the actor on the highly regarded Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation movie, McQuarrie had previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher while also serving as either a producer or screenwriter on Jack Reacher 2 and Cruise’s upcoming Universal Monsters movie The Mummy. When it comes to actor-director pairings, there’s no denying McQuarrie and Cruise are one of the more impressive duos at work these days.

Tom Cruise Is Still Screaming Weird in the Second ‘The Mummy’ Trailer

To understand why I’m more excited than most for The Mummy, it’s important to make a list of all the things that I’m a sucker for. Tom Cruise movies? Check. Trailers or commercials that use the Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint it Black’ as a musical cue? Check-check. Movies where soldiers fight monsters? Check-check-check. In fact, if you do the math, the only thing on my Hollywood wishlist that the second The Mummy trailer doesn’t deliver is a John Wick-style gunfight, and there’s still time. One of those might still find its way into the final movie.

2015’s remake of old-school espionage show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was a rollicking good time, but more than that, it was an audition reel for its stars Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill. Hammer brought his marksmanship and high-speed combat skills to Ben Wheatley’s upcoming shoot-‘em-up Free Fire, and now part-time Superman Cavill has also landed a new role befitting his ultra-smooth fighting prowess. He’ll have to run, jump, most likely get shirtless, and appear alongside Tom Cruise in what just might be his most dangerous assignment yet.

‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Director Promises a Few Unexpected Character Returns

Remember those few days last August where Tom Cruise’s salary negotiations had shut down production on Mission: Impossible 6? For a moment there, it looked as though one of the best action movie franchises on the planet had finally shut down. No more age-defying stunts from AARP member Cruise; no more innovative action sequences from unexpected movie directors. When things were finally smoothed over between star and studio in September, I’m not ashamed to admit I breathed an audible sigh of relie

Over the last couple of days there’s been a bit of news regarding reshoots on Rogue One, with the initial report claiming that Disney is unhappy with Gareth Edwards’ cut of the Star Wars anthology film. Subsequent reports revealed what many already suspected: it’s just your usual run of reshoots to retool and fine-tune some things, mostly to lighten the tone. And according to a new rumor, while Disney may not be outright displeased with Rogue One, the reshoots may be a bit more involved than we thought.

In addition to his actual resume, Christopher McQuarrie is well-known for providing a little uncredited rewrite assistance on various films, including the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. While he’s busy prepping Mission: Impossible 6 with Tom Cruise, McQuarrie was asked when we might see him write a Star Wars movie — a notion too good to ignore on its own, but when you see his idea for a spinoff, you’ll think it’s even better.

One of the most frustrating parts of my job are the complaints from some viewers that never line up with reality. When people want to talk about movies with me, the first question after “What should I see right now?” is always some variation of “Why are there so many sequels? Why doesn’t Hollywood make original movies?” I hear this all the time. But the sequels continue to make huge money, while the occasional risk-taking originals tend to fare poorly.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was one of the best M:I outings yet, thanks in no small part to Christopher McQuarrie’s script and direction, as well as Rebecca Ferguson’s kick-ass supporting role. Paramount clearly recognizes a good thing when they’ve got it, as the studio is reportedly in talks with McQuarrie to return to both write and direct Mission: Impossible 6, with the option for Ferguson to reprise her role, if she wants it.

Rumor: ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Script Got a Little Help From Christopher McQuarrie

Put this rumor on the “likely” pile: a new report suggests that Christopher McQuarrie may have punched up the screenplay for Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One, which is fairly believable, given how often McQuarrie does uncredited script rewrites. At any rate, if true, that’s excellent news for Rogue One and fans of the Star Wars universe.
