McG is in final negotiations to direct Puzzle Palace for Summit. Reading the title, you would assume that it is some kind of board game adaptation, but surprisingly… no. The original script by Safe House‘s David Guggenheim centers on a son trying to clear his veteran cop dad‘s name. However, in order to get the evidence he needs, he’ll have to break into One Police Plaza. But how? That’s where they keep all of the police, including the crooked ones who are after him. Somebody had better put in a call to David Morse’s agent.

McG and Guggenheim have a previous relationship, but it’s strictly work-based, guys. Guggenheim wrote Medallion, the action film McG produced starring Nicolas Cage and Malin Akerman. It’s currently in post-production, so hopefully we can all gather together to laugh at the trailer very soon. (THR)

Ethan Hawke is in talks to slum it on Fox with the procedural drama Exit Strategy. The project is backed by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and David Guggenheim and expected to go to pilot if Hawke signs on. The high octane successor to 24“ will star Hawke as the leader of an elite team that helps retrieve CIA agents from missions gone awry. And, like “24,” the project is also presented in real time.

What do you think of this move to TV by Hawke? His film career still seems to have steam left in it, and he’s found success on the stage. Does this spring from a need to keep working, or is it all part of his gradual metamorphosis into Chris O’Donnell? (Deadline)
