In an interview with Empire Magazinethe director Christopher McQuarrie (‘Jack Reacher: The Last Shot’) commented on the last two films in the franchise ‘Mission Impossible‘, which will conclude the story of Ethan Hunt (tom cruise🇧🇷
The filmmaker anticipates that the final chapters, entitled ‘Reckoning’ – Part 1 and 2‘, will be epic and even more impressive than the previous films in the saga.
“There are a lot of things from Ethan’s past that will come to light. ‘Reckoning’ is a navigational term. That means you’re choosing a course based solely on your last known position and that becomes a metaphor not just for Ethan, but for a lot of the characters.”
He completes, “The first thing we knew about the final chapter was that it would be a two-part adventure. It will be epic. It will have to be a conclusion that will top the entire franchise. There is no other way to end the story.”
McQuarrie took over the management of the franchise in ‘ghost nation‘ (2016), returned to ‘Fallout Effect‘ (2018) and is behind the 7th and 8th, titled ‘Reckoning’ – Part 1 and 2🇧🇷
In addition, he will collaborate with cruise in yet another film outside the franchise’Mission Impossible’.
Still without a title or plot disclosed, “the film will be very different from what you are used to seeing Tom doing”, said the filmmaker. “We’ve been teasing this idea for a long time and it’s the kind of thing I really love. It’s a little out of my comfort zone. But it’s about making movies more and more about emotion and real emotional experiences.”
Remembering that the eighth chapter hits theaters in June 28, 2024🇧🇷 The seventh, entitled ‘Mission Impossible – Reckoning: Part 1’is scheduled to be released in July 14, 2023🇧🇷
