‘Mission: Impossible 6’ To Have Its Own Style | Film News
With series you never know if they’re going to be successful or not, or if the new film can measure up to the success of the previous ones. People always compare films when it comes to series. What’s great about the Mission: Impossible series is that every film has an unique identity. Each filmmaker, from Brian De Palma (Dressed to Kill) to J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to Brad Bird (Tomorrowland), showed their distinct style in the franchise.
This past summer, on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) left his identifiable mark on the series. McQuarrie is coming back to direct the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise, so expect to a new vision. The writer/director’s work is characterized by clean storytelling, often relying more on action than exposition to tell a story.
Regarding Mission: Impossible 6 McQuarrie declared : “My desire as a filmmaker is to always be a better filmmaker than I was on the previous film. I’m not a filmmaker interested in stasis. I really want to grow and push myself. I think if you look at the three films I’ve done — from The Way of the Gun to Jack Reacher to Mission: Impossible — I think it’s very clear there’s a distinct voice that runs through them, and they’re each sort of expanding, in terms of the storytelling and use of technology.
I’m learning on each movie the mysteries of this technical craft or that technical craft. I had things I specifically learned from this movie I want to apply to the next. I gotta imagine it’ll look different. Let’s put it this way: if it looks the same, I’ll be disappointed”.
