Personal Quote:

When you're making a film, you don't really have time to consider what the whole of your film is. And then, when you're releasing your film and promoting your film, you're looking at it in a different way. Then, as you move away from it, you start to look at it objectively and think, "What could I have done better?". See more »

Trivia:

Wrote a screenplay for The Wolverine (2013) which Darren Aronofsky was set to direct. After Aronofsky's departure from the film, McQuarrie's screenplay was heavily rewritten and his name was removed from the credits. See more »
