    Christopher McQuarrie Will Give Colin Firth 'Three To Kill'

    It looks like Hollywood has found a hot new author to adapt. Sort of. You might not know the name of late French author Jean-Patrick Manchette, but his work is living up on the big screen. Sean Penn is already starring in an adaptation of the author's "La Position du tireur couché" (aka "Prone Gunma...

    Christopher McQuarrie To Direct Big Screen Adaptation Of '70s Japanese Animation Series 'Star Blazers'

    Let's take a step back in time, shall we? Way back in 2011, Skydance snapped up the rights to the 1970s Japanese animation series "Star Blazers," and tapped Christopher McQuarrie to write the script for a big budget live-action film version, and then nothing was heard from it again. Well, franchise ...

    Christopher McQuarrie Chooses To Accept Directing 'Mission: Impossible 5'

    Even though he's been playing it cagey and cool, this news is hardly shocking. As far back as last fall, prior to the release of "Jack Reacher," Christopher McQuarrie was expected to write and direct "Mission: Impossible 5" for his bud Tom Cruise. Even earlier this year he was undecided on directing...

    Scott Frank Out, Christopher McQuarrie Back To Write & Direct Adaptation Of U.K. Miniseries 'Unforgiven'

    This is how it goes sometimes in Hollywood. You work on a project, it leaves your hands and then it somehow circles back and lands on your desk. Way back in 2010, Christopher McQuarrie was hired on to adapt the U.K. miniseries "Unforgiven" into a feature film, with Angelina Jolie being eyed to lead....

    It's Official: Tom Cruise Will Be Back For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

    While the varying results of "Rock Of Ages," "Jack Reacher" and "Oblivion" may suggest that Tom Cruise isn't always a guaranteed box office draw, at least within the franchise of "Mission: Impossible" he's unstoppable.

    Christopher McQuarrie Wishes He Could Remake 'Way of the Gun,' Admits He "Alienated" Himself From The Film Industry

    Last year's Tom Cruise actioner “Jack Reacher” held a trifecta of curious elements: The controversial casting of its star, Werner Herzog's brief villainous turn, and, most importantly, the return of Christopher McQuarrie to the director's chair. After helming “The Way Of The Gun” in 2000, McQuarrie ...

    Christopher McQuarrie Still Undecided On Whether He Should Direct 'Mission: Impossible 5'; Should He Be?

    It's probably safe to say that "Jack Reacher" didn't quite do the business that Paramount was hoping for. After Tom Cruise took "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" to nearly $700 million worldwide, we can't blame anyone for thinknig that the actor had rebounded fr...

    David Oyelowo is one of those actors who has had a very, very good year. He started off 2012 by being a part of George Lucas' World War II epic "Red Tails," made a splash with the Cannes debut of Lee Daniels' pulpy "The Paperboy," and is closing out the year with two high-profile performances – he c...
