Christopher McQuarrie immortalized himself within the world of cinema long ago, with his masterpiece The Usual Suspects which won him the Academy Award in the Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen category.
Since then McQuarrie has delivered a number of projects including Jack Reacher, Edge of Tomorrow, the last two Mission Impossible films (and appears to be writing the next two installments to the franchise) and is currently working on the Top Gun sequel.
One genre McQuarrie hasn’t been able to break into is that of superheroes and comic books. He has had several almosts with DC but can’t quite get anything off the ground. McQuarrie recenly posted on his Twitter account about how his ideas for new DC films were turned down. As he explains below that was at one time true, but was fired before he even put down a thought. You can check out the post below.
What about your attachment to Green Lantern? Is that BS or is it too complicated to explain?

Too complicated to explain. It tied into the Superman movie that Cavill and I were proposing. No takers.
The studios have never cared for my original ideas. They prefer that I fix their broken ones.

That’s gotta be rough to have Superman on your side and the studio stiillreject your proposal. I don’t see the issue here, why wouldn’t DC take a shot with an Oscar winner? Apparently DC simply does not like where he wants to take the stories, which, from his comments above seem to adhere to the comicbooks. While DC as of late has for the most part turned things around, but McQuarrie seems like he could be a huge help in finishing that task.
