Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One - The Biggest Stunt in Cinema History

Prior to redefining the limits – and raising the bar – of action directing for mega franchises like Mission: Impossible, Jumanji, Men in Black and Jack Reacher, Wade himself was a real-life action hero.

Serving in the National Sea Rescue in his native South Africa, volunteering for air/sea operations, in addition to being an accomplished master diver, licensed skydiver, black belt in martial arts, gold awarded fencer, boxer, horse rider, licensed driver for Formula 3 – prototypes and sports cars – Wade was well-primed for his award-winning career as a stunt and action director.

From Chris Hemsworth fighting an alien ex-girlfriend with three arms in hand-to-hand-to-hand combat, to Tom Cruise gripping the side of a monstrous Airbus A400M, to the relentless helicopter-to-helicopter chase through the jagged mountain corridors of Kashmir, Wade’s deep understanding of the dramatic and emotional components of character-driven action have elevated films like Jumanji: The Next Level, The Mummy, Inferno and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back to the apex of the modern action genre. 

Wade will next be creating and directing the action sequences for the upcoming final installments of the acclaimed Mission: Impossible blockbuster series with Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two.
