The acclaimed director of Mission Impossible: Fallout and Oscar winning screenwriter of The Usual Suspects wants young filmmakers and scriptwriters to know what it takes to be successful. And it may not be what they want to hear. In a recent Twitter thread McQuarrie got real with his followers, in a brilliant and honest thread that contains gems like: ".... my own career didn't start by blindly submitting scripts, nor did the careers of any of my writer friends. This is not to say it can’t happen, but the ODDS of just submitting your script and having it made are extremely slim." See the whole thread on Twitter here.
