The upcoming Mission Impossible sequel, Rogue Nation, has one scene in particular that is inspired by a Uncharted.


Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, featured a scene in which Drake chases a cargo plane, gets inside, and later tries to climb his way back up as the air sucks him out from the cargo bay. This remains one of the game’s, and probably the series’, best moments.

Hollywood filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie, director of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, seems to agree. So much so that the scene in question inspired a chase scene in the movie.

McQuarrie said as much on Twitter when asked by a fan how he came up with it.

Justin Richmond, game director of Uncharted 3 was chuffed.

Take a look at both scenes below to get the idea.
