File this under “Ugh.” McG and Breck Eisner are actually battling it out over who GETS to direct the big screen adaptation of Ouija. That’s right. They’re both willingly going out for the project.

McG And Simon West Share A Cab For ‘Medallion’
Thursday, October 28 by

Though it pains me to have to use Taxi Dog to break this news, there was no other way. Resoundingly mediocre film directors McG and Simon West are teaming up for Medallion. It's rumored that Nicolas Cage or Clive Owen will star as a man who has a short amount of time to track down his kidnapped daughter, who happens to be locked in the trunk of an unidentified NYC taxi cab.
Locked in a trunk? That sounds more like a job for Marvin Berry. I guess he's holding out for something that really cooks. McG will produce while Simon West enjoys a later call time than the rest of the crew. This unholy union can only mean one thing. The prophecy is correct. I will fall asleep on the couch while watching this on Netflix Instant. And so it shall be. (LA Times)

Richard Branson, McG Set Sail for ‘Columbus’
Monday, October 18 by

What do you get the billionaire who has everything? A mediocre director with only one name, apparently.

Richard Branson, the owner of Virgin Airlines, is branching out into the film business (which will no doubt save money as far as in-flight movies are concerned). The corporate mogul is attempting to acquire the script for Columbus, which is described as a "300-style film about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of America." If the thought of an Indian kicking the explorer down a giant hole while yelling "This is the pre-Columbian Bahamas" doesn't float your boat, you're probably not going to like the fact that McG is attached to direct.

Branson is known for his love of extreme stunts. That being said, putting millions of dollars behind the man who made Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is sure to get his adrenaline pumping. (Deadline)

Tom Hardy Replaces Sam Worthington in McG’s ‘This Means War’
Tuesday, July 27 by

Their body language says everything.
Another actor has once again jumped McG's This Means War ship. Sam Worthington was set to duel with Chris Pine in the project, but the Aussie actor has peaced out and Brit Tom Hardy has taken his place. Now Hardy and Pine, both Star Trek nuuuuurds, will go after each other black-ops-spy-style while also vying for the hand of Reese Witherspoon.
I'm a huge fan of this pairing. Tom Hardy's performance in Inception was one of the most enjoyable parts of the film, and Chris Pine proved he can hold his own in the Star Trek reboot. Watching these two fine actors go head-to-head with spy sh*t could be an exhilarating match. Especially if McG scores the scene with a Prodigy "Firestarter"/Usher "Daddy's Home" remix. (Vulture)

McG Wants Sam Worthington To Fight Chris Pine In ‘This Means War’
Friday, June 18 by

FIGHT!! FIGHT!! FIGHT!!The threat of seeing a Seth Rogen topless scene has been squashed… for now. Last we heard about McG's This Means War was that Seth Rogen and Chris Pine were up to play two former spies who destroy New York City while fighting for the hand of Reese Witherspoon. Now there's news that Chris Pine is on-board and Rogen is out, with the part now being offered to Sam Worthington.I think this could be pretty interesting casting. Worthington has mastered squinting in front of a green-screen, so let's see what he does with a comedy. Though, I am a little worried for Sam. He's making far too many movies and I'm afraid he's not getting enough sleep. How is he supposed to deal with the strain of keeping an American accent if his tongue doesn't get enough rest?

McG To Produce ‘The DUFF’
Tuesday, June 1 by

Breast-lover McG has picked up the rights to produce an adaptation of Kody Keplinger's teen novel The DUFF, under his Wonderland Sound and Vision banner, the shingle responsible for "Chuck," "Supernatural," and "Human Target." For those not fluent in mean-spirited teenager, DUFF stands for "designated ugly fat friend." Or in McG's case, Brett Ratner.The DUFF tells the story of an unpopular girl who falls into the arms of the popular boy she believes she hates. Before everyone gets grossed out at the thought of an ugly person finding love and happiness, bear in mind that this will be a feature film so the lead will merely be "Hollywood ugly." Which means Miranda Cosgrove with braces or glasses or… [shudder] both. (Variety)

David Fincher to Direct Jules Verne’s ‘Fight Sub’
Sunday, May 16 by

The first rule of Fight Sub: you don't let McG direct Fight Sub.Director David Fincher is in talks with Disney to direct a remake of Jules Verne’s classic submarine adventure, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Fincher is attempting to resurrect the project first helmed by McG, the famed auteur behind Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Korn: Who Then Now?Disney reportedly dropped McG from the project because they believed his take on the film was too dark. If you're looking for more light-hearted fare, Fincher is the obvious choice. I'm sure the scene where Captain Nemo finds his wife's severed head in a box will be a real knee slapper. (EmpireOnLine)

Seth Rogen or Chris Pine Up for Role in ‘This Means War’
Thursday, April 22 by

Seth Rogen and Chris Pine are being considered for the role vacated by Bradley Cooper in This Means War. Makes sense seeing as they're all pretty much the same guy. If you're squinting really hard.The romantic comedy tells the story of two best friends who compete for the affections of Reese Witherspoon and leave New York City decimated in their wake. Because if there's one thing that New York City is lacking in, it's women hotter than Reese Witherspoon. One the one hand, Chris Pine fits the heart-throb bill better than Rogen. Yet on the other, Rogen's packing the right equipment should director McG decide to include a topless scene. I could see this one going either way. (The Wrap)

‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ 5-MINUTE “HARVESTER” FEATURETTE
Monday, May 11 by

Not since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' "Coming Out of Their Shells" Tour has Pizza Hut delivered such a powerhouse promotional tie in.  Today, on the 'Hut's website, those bros at Warners posted a new 5-minute Terminator Salvation featurette that shows you the anatomy of a scene in which Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) blow the ever loving crap out of a combo 7-Eleven/Gas Station (and probably all the Terminator Salvation promotional Slurpee crazy straws within it). The best part is the interview with Special Effects Supervisor Michael Meinardus, who's supporting himself on crutches.  The dude looks like he injured himself jumping off his Harley to punch a T-800 in its exo-skull.  Check out the insightful and ass-kicking sequence – brought to you by Pizza Hut – after the jump.  [via /Film]
