Personal Quote:

The truth of the matter is movies are a reflection of life and violence is a real part of life. I don't think you could make movies exclusively where there was no violence. See more »

Trivia:

He was hired by frequent collaborator Tom Cruise to do revisions to the script for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011). McQuarrie's work was originally given a shared 'written by' credit. This was evident in the first trailer for the film. However, the Writer's Guild of America removed McQuarrie's name from any writing credit by the time the movie was released on December 16, 2011.
