Christopher McQuarrie talks M:I sequels: ‘How do you fall from the moon?’

Christopher McQuarrie has gone all-in on the Mission: Impossible franchise. After the success of Mission: Impossible Fallout last year, the director has decided to helm the next two installments of the action franchise. In an interview with Empire Online, McQuarrie explained why he’s a little bit nervous that he might’ve bitten off more than he can chew.

I pitched the idea of making two movies, and now I have to justify why it’s two movies,” the director explained. “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. Here’s the problem with going to the moon: how do you fall from the moon?

The Mission: Impossible franchise launched in 1966 with the original CBS television series, which ran for seven seasons and 171 episodes. It returned as a series in 1988 on ABC, but failed to find an audience, and was canceled after two seasons. It was nearly a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.

McQuarrie, who helmed Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, wrote and directed last year’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout, making him the first director to helm more than one film in the franchise.
