McG has directed a slew of big films, but they’re always disappointing. Is anyone really a fan of Charlie’s Angels, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle or Terminator: Salvation? None of them are quality films, which is why I’m always concerned when his name is attached to anything. While he preps Ouija for Platinum Dunes, he’ll be developing a new comic book line that he hopes will be adapted into feature films for him to direct.
McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision has launched a new comic and graphic novel imprint to create transmedia properties out of original ideas, writes Deadline. The first title will be Haunted City, based on an idea by screenwriter Chap Taylor.
The comic, written by Taylor and Wonderland’s Peter Johnson, is a dark, supernatural story set in major cities around the world, with New York the venue for the first comic. It will be published by Wonderland in association with Aspen Comics.
It will simultaneously be developed into a feature script that McG hopes to direct, as well as a TV pilot that Wonderland will executive produce. A vidgame is also in the works.
