McQuarrie is a bad fit. He's focused on story/plot, and that's not what should drive a Bond film.
We need someone who knows how to write/shape stories that capture the Fleming blend of exoticism, pleasure, humor, violence, and surrealism. None of those things are McQuarrie's strong point.
I disagree. Rogue Nation captured the exotic nature and adventure of a Bond film. Spectre was more story/plot too. There's nothing wrong with Mcquarrie doing a Bond film. A writer is hired based on talent in crafting a rich script, of course, but another just-as important ingredient: can he' work with the producers like Purvis and Wade can?
Was Haggis a surrealist writer when he was hired? No. Just a talented writer who can distinguish between the genres and deliver.
McQuarrie, though, seems to have his own franchise in Mission Impossible so he'll be busy for a while.
