‘Mission Impossible’ director explains why major character had to die in ‘Dead Reckoning Part One’
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One director Christopher McQuarrie has explained why a major character had to die – warning spoilers below.Ilsa Faust played by Rebecca Ferguson, who has been in the franchise since 2015’s Rogue Nation, was surprisingly killed off by the lead villain Gabriel (Esai Morales) during a fight scene in Venice.In a new interview with Empire, McQuarrie discussed why he and Tom Cruise felt the need to kill off Ferguson’s character.“We knew that that emotional arc was of a certain emotional tone… Ilsa is a wonderful character, and a character of which I am enormously proud, and Rebecca is an actor of such unmitigated power and presence,” the director said.“And yet, where we had gone with the character from Rogue to Fallout…[the] place you took that character would either make less of her, it would suddenly become frivolous… or she would just become a romantic interest, and it was never about creating a character who was defined by her love story with Ethan Hunt.“Their relationship transcends a traditional loving story… They’re doomed to be together and yet doomed never to be together… It felt like that story was looking for its resolution and so we said this has got to happen.”McQuarrie went on to explain the decision to conclude her story dovetailed with their desire to give a sense of genuine stakes in the movie.“What really needs to happen in the story is the stakes have to be real, they can’t be implied,” he added.
Tom Cruise slammed as ‘egocentric control freak’ by Hollywood scribe who worked with him
A screenwriter who worked with Tom Cruise in the erotic drama Eyes Wide Shut has labeled the Hollywood star an “egocentric control freak” among other things.Frederic Raphael, 91, made the claims about the actor in his new book, Last Post, in which he targeted the Mission: Impossible star’s career, links to Scientology, and his failed marriage to Aussie actress Nicole Kidman.Raphael fell out with the film’s director Stanley Kubrick in 1999, when he released his first memoir, Eyes Wide Open, where he was very critical of Kubrick’s directing style, which led to him being uninvited to the film’s premiere.Now in his new book, Raphael again slammed Kubrick and accused the Hollywood heavyweight’s wife Christiane Harlan and her brother Jan Harlan of spearheading the unflattering portrayal of him on Wikipedia.The author also roped Cruise into the drama by claiming the actor knew of the Wikipedia entry.“The Harlans and Master Cruise have managed to insert some derogatory stuff in my Wikipedia entry,” he writes, as obtained by the Daily Mail.Raphael’s claims appear to stem from the Wikipedia entry citing film critic Roger Ebert’s interview with Cruise in 1999, where he sided with Kubrick in the feud.“[Raphael] wouldn’t have written it if Stanley had been alive,” Cruise is quoted saying in the interview.“Opportunistic. Self-serving.
