I couldn't happier. Disney went ahead and sunk McG's film, Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The movie was scheduled to begin production in February of next year, but the production has been put on hold indefinitely, McG is no longer captain of the production. I'm not surprised by this news, it was only a matter of time before someone realized McG isn't a good director.
Disney confirmed that the studio won’t proceed with the film for now, and reps for the director McG has confirmed he has withdrawn. McG will concentrate on other projects that include Dead Spy Running, a Warner Bros. drama that Stephen Gaghan is writing. McG is also attached to Terminator 5, though that movie is on hold indefinitely as the Terminator franchise works its way through bankruptcy court. McG just teamed with Borat helmer Larry Charles on a new NBC comedy.
I seriously doubt McG will still be attached to direct Terminator 5 when the Terminator franchise sale has been settled. His Terminator: Salvation film just got such negative feedback, why would anyone want to have him direct another one?
There is nothing said about why Nemo was shut down and why McG left. I can only assume Disney didn't like the direction Mcg wanted to take the story which is fine by me, the guy has edged his way into Brett Ratner status anyway. I just hope Disney finally relized that McG lacks creative talent. Ha! Maybe they caught him in one of his lies.
