Personal Quote:

A lot of books, if you take them at face value, they're just not gonna work as films. See more »


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.
