Did you guys hear the rumor about who might play the lead in Spider-Man today? Yeah! Access Hollywood broke it. And, like, half the Internet picked up on it. Because — yeah! Access Hollywood! Isn’t that the show with the John Tesh looking motherfucker with a mustache and a drunken voice mail booty-call problem?
Anyway. It’s not important. Let’s move on to something that matters. Like McG’s career. Remember that guy? Directed a couple of Charlie’s Angels movies and thought he was some kind of hot shit, so he made a movie about a plane crash where all anyone can talk about is the football team, before deciding that he was obviously a good enough director to take over the Terminator franchise.
Well, McG got his reality check, didn’t he? And now he’s returning to something a little more his speed. As in, a romantic comedy. But he’s gonna blow it out, bro!
It’s not a done deal, yet, but McG is currently in talks to direct This Means War, which currently has Reese Witherspoon and Bradley Cooper attached. It’s about two male friends who have been BFFs since childhood who then fall in love with the same woman (Witherspoon) and watch their friendship disintegrate, apparently forgetting about the brah code, brah.
Timothy Dowling wrote the most recent draft of the script — the movie has been in development for something like 12 years, and has seen its number of actors and directors come aboard before abandoning the project, most likely because it’s a completely idiotic one. McG, however, has some free time after Disney nixed his 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea after they realized it was a big budget film and that McG was McG.
Who do you think he’ll get for the soundtrack? Staind or Nickelback? My money’s on Daughtry.
