STK685196-3Over on the Empire Podcast (below), Christopher McQuarrie, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation‘s director, gives us an incredibly in-depth interview. He talks about the latest M:I (of course), but also tells us about the lessons learned from working on several of the other films in his impressive filmography (Usual Suspects, The Way of The Gun, Edge of Tomorrow — just to name a few). The director/screenwriter also talks about the parallels between Rogue Nation and Spectre, as well as how he almost glossed over actress Rebecca Ferguson as his female lead.

It’s a phenomenal 2 hour-plus sit down. The kind of deep dive that vividly describes the experience of making a $150 million blockbuster while trying to not fall flat on your face. Take a listen…
