Some interesting questions have been answered by the Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie, tweets are after the Read More link
Last we heard, Christopher McQuarrie was retooling the ending of Mission: Impossible 5, resulting in a bit of a delay. According to the director, that’s not really accurate. McQuarrie took to Twitter for a spontaneous Q&A, fielding questions from fans of the series. The director addressed that issue with the ending, which characters won’t be back (and which ones get more screen time) and when we can expect the film’s official title and trailer.
McQuarrie answered a lot of questions during his Mission: Impossible 5 Q&A on Twitter, but he still managed to avoid offering any specific plot details. There have to be some surprises, right? Most notably, McQuarrie says that Ving Rhames’ Agent Brandt will have more screen time, and confirms that Sean Harris is the villain. He also says that when we see the first trailer, we’ll understand what it is that McQuarrie included in this film that hasn’t been in any of the previous installments. That’s pretty exciting.
He also confirms that his Jack Reacher composer Joe Kraemer is delivering a “retro” score, and that neither Paula Patton nor Maggie Q were available to return. But he does suggest that Simon Pegg’s Benji will be much more active in the field this time around.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the production of Paramount’s hotly-anticipated Mission: Impossible 5 was shut down for a little over a week in London after the ending was deemed “unsatisfactory.”
Despite the film having its release moved up from Christmas to July 31, its star/producer/franchise caretaker Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie, as well as an uncredited/unpaid writer friend, were given the extra time to come up with a new finale that would “get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place.”
The expensive decision to shut down production for a week–which results in cast and crew put into a paid holding pattern while doing no real work–is nothing compared to the catastrophic reshoots on Paramount’s World War Z, where director Marc Forster brought in top-shelf screenwriters Damon Lindelof and Drew Goddard to completely reconceive the last act, resulting in a huge amount of scrapped footage and 30 to 40 minutes of new material shot over seven weeks.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), Mission: Impossible 5 also stars Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Simon McBurney and Rebecca Ferguson, featuring a screenplay by Will Staples and Drew Pearce.
