Director Christopher McQuarrie shared his ideas on how he approached that sequence. “I mentioned, ‘Okay, if I have been doing this sequence, it might be Tom in, say, 1989. It might be Tony Scott’s Mission: Inconceivable. That’s who would have been directing the film earlier than Brian De Palma, , in that period,” McQuarrie mentioned on the Empire podcast (through Selection). “We checked out Days of Thunder and we seemed on the type of it, and we began considering what wouldn’t it seem like if Tony Scott had shot this, and who wouldn’t it have been? I seemed again at who was the ingenue, who was the breakout star in 1989? And proper round then was ‘Mystic Pizza.’ And I used to be like, ‘Oh my God. Julia Roberts, a then-pre-‘Fairly Girl’ Julia Roberts, as this younger lady.’”
McQuarrie continued, “The one method I may have seen doing the sequence justice [using de-aging] was to one way or the other persuade Julia Roberts to come back in and be this small function at first of this story. And naturally, as you’re conceptually going by means of it, you’re like, ‘Now all anyone’s going to be doing is considering the de-aging of Julia Roberts, and Esai, and Tom, and Henry Czerny.’”
The choice was finally made to inform the story with Ethan’s face in shadow, following him from behind. McQuarrie felt like this was your best option to keep away from having audiences get distracted from the story by the de-aged faces of recognizable actors like Cruise and Roberts. Different filmmakers have embraced the de-aged route, with Indiana Jones and the Dial of Future that includes a 25-minute opening motion sequence following a de-aged Harrison Ford because the hero.
“I obtained the invoice for de-aging these individuals earlier than their salaries have been even factored into it,” McQuarrie instructed Empire. “And in the event you put two of them in a shot collectively, or three of them in a shot collectively, it might have been as costly because the practice by the point we have been completed.” He’s referring to the movie’s climactic motion set piece the place they constructed a practice from scratch and destroyed it.
