Had written considerable amount of dialog for the character Harold Longbaugh in the cult action film The Way of the Gun (2000). However, Benicio Del Toro suggested the "less is more" approach and had him cut down his lines.

Had done an uncredited rewrite of the screenplay for the sci-fi action film X-Men (2000). He chose not to have his name on the credits as he felt that the screenplay was mostly the vision of David Hayter.

He was hired by frequent collaborator Tom Cruise to do revisions to the screenplay for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011). McQuarrie's work was originally given a shared 'written by' credit. This was evident in the first trailer for the film. However, the Writer's Guild of America removed McQuarrie's name from any writing credit by the time the movie was released on December 16, 2011.
