McG's Awakening

04.14.2009

Everyone is waiting to see if McG kicks the shit out of TERMINATOR SALVATION this summer. If he does, he will be revered world over as a saviour, and invited to many a ham dinner. If not, he will be blindfolded, sodomized, and thrown off a cliff. It seems as though McG is so confident in his film however, that he's already begun booking future projects.

First it was announced that McG would direct 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA: CAPTAIN NEMO, and now McG is in talks to adapt the smash hit Broadway musical "Spring Awakening" for the silver screen. Set in 19th-century Germany, the coming-of-age tale features a group of teenagers discovering their sexuality and dealing with sensitive topics like masturbation, abortion, rape and suicide.

Although no studio is currently attached, it shouldnt be long before this film finds a home, as the musical--with music written by Duncan Sheik and based on a 1891 German Play--cleaned up at last year's Tonys. McG has previous experience in both music and teen dramas--having produced Sugar Ray's first album and executive produced "The O.C"--making him the perfect candidate to bring us a film about sexy young things singing about their wee-wees and their ha-has.

Actually, I loved 'We Are Marshall' so much, I've already forgiven him for past ills.

McG overrated? The guy was responsible for Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Not much to even begin rating, let alone overrating.

YIKES

I'm not sure I trust McG to direct something as artful as Spring Awakening. Just because it's got teen-friendly music doesn't mean he's cut out for it. I think he would screw up Spring Awakening royally. It's not something that will translate easily to film.

I've given McG alot of shit over the years. If Salvation turns out to be half as good as it looks then he'll get a pass from me for his years of hackery. All signs point to him maturing as a filmmaker and I'll gladly admit it IF it's true.

Does this mean he won't be back for a Terminator sequel?

I think that's a much more interesting news than what he'll be directing next
