Back in 2017, producer Marc Guggenheim had plans to reboot the 1994 True Lies film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis as a tv series. Seemed like a not-terrible idea, the concept of a spy and his wife getting tangled up in various shenanigans wouldn’t be totally outside of the realm of possibly entertaining tv fare. That was kind […]
It’s been announced that Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr has been picked up by Fox21, with the show being directed by McG. When playing through Vampyr, which I fell in love with, the game’s world really did feel like something akin to a TV show. The way it revealed itself and the structure of the whole thing seemed […]
The Babysitter is not a particularly great movie. Let’s get that out of the way right off the bat. Streaming on Netflix now, and just in time for Halloween, it is however probably destined for campy cult-film status. Going into this one I was not really sure what to expect from The Babysitter. Directed by […]
New Masters of The Universe Movie Gets A Release Date, Kind Of?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 24 veteran Clayne Crawford has joined the cast of Fox‘s Lethal Weapon pilot as Martin Riggs. Based on the 1987 feature film, the pilot stars Damon Wayans Sr. as Roger Murtaugh, an LAPD detective who must avoid stress following a minor heart attack. Partner with Riggs, an ex Navy SEAL […]
Deadline reports that Fox has ordered an hour-long pilot based on the Warner Bros. Lethal Weapon film series. Damon Wayans will play Roger Murtaugh, the part originally played by Danny Glover in all four of the Lethal Weapon films from 1987 to 1998. No one has yet been cast as Martin Riggs, the part originated […]
Deadline reports Terminator: Salvation director McG is in talks to direct Masters of the Universe, the second live-action film to spawn from Mattel‘s He-Man toy line. The first film, 1987’s Masters of the Universe, starred Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as his archenemy Skeletor. Produced by Cannon Films on a shoe-string budget, the […]
By Rich Epstein ABC Family took to New York Comic Con to introduce their new series Shadow Hunters to the world. Most of the cast was on hand along with executive producer and director of the pilot episode McG and creator of the Mortal Instruments book series, Cassandra Claire. The panel opened with the first […]
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is in talks with Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks to direct a reboot of the short-lived Charlie’s Angels film series, itself based on the Aaron Spelling produced ABC TV series starring Jaclyn Smith throughout its run and, at various times, Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Tanya Roberts and Kate […]
McG has teamed up with Luc Besson and that, Mr. Kevin Bacon, is a real cinematic no-brainer.
No, this isn't news, but it is a curiosity. There's also a hint of Swipe File in here too.
This is a weird trailer and I'm not sure what to make of this movie.
With Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Kermit the Frog and more.
If one was so inclined to reprise stuntman bounty hunter TV show The Fall Guy as a major motion picture, picking McG to direct would be quite the no-brainer. His Charlie’s Angel‘s films were flash, fast-burning machines all tanked up with the same kind of pop nostalgia that a Fall Guy project would run on, and […]
I am a fan of McG and his approach crafting a film, if not necessarily a fan of all of his projects. To be fair, I don’t know that all of them are aimed at me anyway. But I have always respected his craftsmanship. Seeing as This Means War is now getting its release in the […]
Tom Hardy vs. Chris Pine.
The Singapore office of 20th Century Fox have released an “international” trailer for McG’s This Means War. It runs considerably shorter than the US cut, and has a slightly different emphasis. I still can’t understand how we’re supposed to sympathise with or root for Reese Witherspoon‘s character at all. If the script is really up […]
The basic underlying premise of This Means War is something of a dodgy one: two manly men are going to fight over a woman who is two-timing them and, in the process, incur the kind of collateral damage that puts lives at risk (or potentially snuffs them out, but I don’t think they’ll go there). […]
Title: Haunted City #0 Creators: created by Chap Taylor, written by Taylor and Peter Johnson with art by Michael Ryan, in association with McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision. It’s being simultaneously developed is as a feature script, a TV pilot, and a multi-platform video game (but then again isn’t everything) Publisher: Aspen Available: Booth #2321 […]
Looks like the another bit of WonderCon weekend news just hit: McG‘s Wonderland Sound and Vision company has just launched an imprint for comics and graphic novels with Fathom publishers Aspen Comics, according to Deadline. Their first project is a supernatural drama called Haunted City. Wonderland has previously worked with DC on comics of its […]
