A new script has been turned in last week and The Halcyon Company are trying to fast track Terminator 4 into production.
CHUD reports that action director McG is in talks to direct the film, which really excites me. I think McG’s Charlies Angels is one of the best fun just purely to be fun action movies in recent years. His efforts since have been varied (Full Throttle was overboard and We Are Marshall was, well, I don’t remember). It could be said that McG probably needs a good producer to reign him in at some points.
But is McG’s style vs. substance method the right way to go for this film? I’m not sure. On the other hand, McG ensures an interesting effort (good or bad), unlike many of the hack directors who could be hired for the project.
