    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 Talks The '70s Influences Of 'Jack Reacher,' Says Lee Daniels' 'The Butler' Is 'Forrest Gump'-Esque

    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...

    Christopher McQuarrie Says He Was In "Director Jail For 12 Years"; Talks Casting Tom Cruise & Werner Herzog In 'Jack Reacher'

    Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie has an Academy Award for writing "The Usual Suspects" and he’s kind of become Tom Cruise’s go-to scribe having penned “Valkyrie,” this week’s upcoming “Jack Reacher” and even tweaking several scripts that Cruise considered starring in (but not before McQuarrie tail...

    'The Wolverine' Scribe Christopher McQuarrie Pitched Fox On Curating Their X-Men Universe

    Given Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie's duties on “The Wolverine” -- a gig that stuck even after Darren Aronofsky's departure from the director's chair last year -- it would make sense that in 20th Century Fox's aims toward building a consistent franchise...

    Review: 'Jack Reacher' Is The Rare Franchise-Starter That Makes You Hungry For More

    Much of the hoopla surrounding "Jack Reacher," the first adaptation of the insanely popular series of Lee Child-penned thrillers, has had to do with the casting of the diminutive Tom Cruise in the title role.

    'Jack Reacher' Helmer Christopher McQuarrie Likely To Reteam With Tom Cruise For 'Mission: Impossible 5'

    The last few years have marked something of a comeback for writer-director Christopher McQuarrie. He was the toast of the town after penning one of the more acclaimed screenplays of the 1990s with "The Usual Suspects," winning an Academy Award for his trouble.
