There are no limits for Tom Cruise when it comes to action! Now, director Christopher McQuarrie has revealed that he and the star are developing a groundbreaking new stunt for one of their upcoming films. It remains to be confirmed whether it will be in “Mission Impossible” or another project.
On his official Twitter account, the filmmaker responded to a question about his collaborations with Cruise, and consequently gave a little spoiler about what’s to come.
A fan’s question questioned if there are any stunts that he and Tom Cruise want to do but would be impossible to pull off. McQuarrie’s intriguing response was to share a story from last week, saying that “on Friday morning I told Tom that the technology to film a specific stunt just doesn’t exist”, saying, that thanks to his skillful crew, ” around six o’clock it already existed”.
Nonetheless, the post was deleted by the director. While this tweet will certainly pique the interest of Cruise fans, one frustrating element is the fact that McQuarrie hasn’t revealed exactly which movie the stunt he’s describing will appear in.
Unless the tweet is a lie and he’s referring to a very distant Friday, it seems unlikely that he’ll appear in “Mission: Impossible – Settlement” Part One or Two, because principal photography on those films wrapped in September 2019. 2021. While it’s possible the stunt could be part of a remake, it seems more likely that it’s part of an upcoming film they’re both working on.
It’s worth noting that Cruise and the director are currently collaborating on at least four upcoming films, including a new action franchise, a musical, and a new collaboration with “Tropical Thunder” director Ben Stiller. However, while they are all in development, they are actively working on a feature that will collaborate with SpaceX.
according to Brazil chalk already reported, this movie with SpaceX will be filmed in outer space. Considering how intense the tech needs would be for the film, it seems more likely that this is the project McQuarrie was referring to in the tweet.
Previously, Tom Cruise literally hung from the wing of an airplane in mid-air to promote the movie “Mission: Impossible – Settlement – Part 1″. The actor recorded a message mid-air while flying over a canyon in South Africa. The video showing this incredible maneuver was shown in April, during CinemaCon, but only recently found its way onto the internet.
“Hey everyone! I wish I could be there with you,” Cruise said in the video. “I’m sorry about all this noise. As you can see, we’re filming the last part of ‘Mission: Impossible’, and now we’re over the beautiful Blyde River Canyon in stunning South Africa. And we are making this movie for the big screen, for audiences to see in its wonderful theaters.”
McQuarrie also makes a small cameo in the video. Flying his own plane, he pulls up next to Cruise and says they’re “losing power” and running out of fuel. So they need to get back to recording. The images show the star’s plane making a U-turn and leaving him almost upside down.
Cruise’s video served as an introduction to the trailer for the new “Mission: Impossible,” also shown at the event ahead of the “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere. Watch:
“Mission: Impossible – Payback Part 1” stars Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham, Pom Klementieff, Esai Morales, Henry Czerny, Rob Delaney, Cary Elwes, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Charles Parnell, Greg Tarzan Davis and Frederick Schmidt.
