IRON MAN 3 Writer Drew Pearce On The Pressures Of Penning MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5
Brad Bird's Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was loved by fans and critics alike, so both director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and writer Drew Pearce (Godzilla) have a lot to live up to. In the following interview, the latter discusses that sort of pressure. Check it out!
"Well, the challenge is pretty clear, which is that you have to be better than the four which came before you and they've already used a bunch of ideas that are probably really good for a Mission Impossible movie. I think that's also kind of exciting because you learn from those four. Definitely, as far as I'm concerned and Chris McQuarrie who's directing it and Tom who's very involved as is J.J. (there's a big brain trust on this), and I think elements of the first Mission, we loved the actual gang in first Mission. If you look back now, it's an incredible array of actors and the way it refreshed was really good, and I think Ghost Protocol just nailed tone. Brad's a kind of genius of action, and I think the Bhurja sequence is a modern classic."
