McQuarrie, who earned an Oscar for The Usual Suspects in the late 1990s, had helped finetune the plot for Ghost Protocol, the fourth movie of the Mission: Impossible saga. He would succeed Brad Bird as director for the upcoming chapter in the franchise, which is loosely based on the popular TV series from the 1960s.
Christopher McQuarrie's main strength compared to other candidates is that he is already well acquainted with Tom Cruise. Aside from the Jack Reacher connection, Cruise played in Bryan Singer's Walkyrie, which was based on a script penned by McQuarrie.
