The director was inspired by legendary filmmakers like Buster Keaton, John Frankenheimer, and David Lean, who all created memorable train wreck scenes.
McQuarrie expressed his excitement about fulfilling his and Cruise’s desires for thrilling action sequences. The film promises to deliver intense stunts and action-packed moments.
