About the Guests

CHRISTOPHER MCQUARRIE (Writer, Director, Producer)

Christopher McQuarrie is an acclaimed and celebrated producer, director and Academy Award® winning screenwriter. His 1995 screenplay for “The Usual Suspects” garnered him the Academy Award® and the BAFTA Award for “Best Original Screenplay,” as well as the Edgar Allan Poe Award and the Independent Spirit Award. It has since been named one of the greatest screenplays of all time by the Writer’s Guild of America.

McQuarrie’s directorial debut came in 2000 with “The Way of the Gun,” starring Ryan Phillippe, Benicio Del Toro and James Caan. In 2008, he co-wrote and produced “Valkyrie,” starring Tom Cruise - a film which would lead to many McQuarrie-Cruise collaborations. They re-teamed in 2012 for McQuarrie’s sophomore directorial outing, “Jack Reacher.” Within hours of completing the film, he was at work with Cruise again, this time re-writing the script for Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” It was while working together on the sci-fi action film that Cruise suggested McQuarrie direct what would become “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.”

In 2017, McQuarrie and Cruise re-teamed again for Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the most successful installment of the franchise to date and the highest grossing film of their respective careers.

McQuarrie grew up in Princeton Junction, New Jersey and in lieu of college, he spent the first five years out of school traveling and working at a detective agency. He later moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film. He currently resides in London.
