Paramount and Tom Cruise Have Asked Christopher McQuarrie To Return For ‘Mission: Impossible 7’

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is easily one of the best installments in the franchise and it had a lot to do with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie. While speaking with Empire Magazine’s podcast he revealed that Tom Cruise and Paramount have asked him about returning for Mission: Impossible 7.

“[Fallout editor] Eddie Hamilton, every day in the editing room was like, ‘Come on, man, it’s obviously a trilogy you’re coming back, you have to finish it, you didn’t kill Lane,’ and I was like, ‘It’s somebody else’s problem.’ Tom [Cruise] has asked, the studio has asked, and I was like, ‘You know maybe I’ve got an idea for…’ and then the reviews came out and I was like, ‘Get outta here. Just stop.’ I felt so bad for the director of [Mission: Impossible] 6 and I feel even worse of the director of 7. I’d rather have leprosy than be in the position of the person having to confront the pressure of the hyperbole of this movie on their first day of shooting the film. It’s too much to confront. I’d need a long nap before I could contemplate it.”

McQuarrie has recently entertained the idea of making Man of Steel 2 and Green Lantern Corps., but has yet to officially pick his next film.
