Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation director cites Uncharted 3 as an inspiration

Deja flew.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie has cited Uncharted 3 as an inspiration for the upcoming movie's airplane sequence.

The scene in question - seen in the trailer below - has Tom Cruise's special agent Ethan Hunt boarding a plane from the outside as it's taking off. When asked on Twitter how he came up with this scenario, McQuarrie stated "Group effort/Uncharted."

Uncharted 3 co-director Justin Richmond responded to this with "you just made my month."

Check out the Uncharted 3 scene in question beneath the trailer, as Nathan Drake boldly defies the laws of physics in service of a really cool interactive action sequence.

Now the real question is what inspired Tom Cruise's amazing shirt in the motorcycle scene?

Compared to this, Ethan Hunt's adventure looks disappointingly possible.
