While Sony and Lionsgate fight a bidding war for the rights to the “Terminator” franchise, “Terminator Salvation” director McG is looking for his next movie in lieu of not going on to helm the series’ fifth installment. Though he’s still linked to the Broadway musical adaptation “Spring Awakening,” according to Variety he has also been in talks to helm a “priority project” for Fox titled “This Means War.”
The comedy already has two stars in place, Bradley Cooper and Reese Witherspoon. It is expected to begin shooting this spring, which would make it the director’s next movie, rather than the musical. The screenplay for “This Means War” has reportedly been rewritten so many times that it’s difficult to say who the author is anymore, but the most recent draft is by “Role Models” scribe Timothy Dowling (who interestingly enough acted in a “Terminator” movie — the third one).
The plot sounds very “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” yet in “This Means War” the spies who turn on each other are best friends rather than husband and wife. It’s that classic story of a woman coming between two guys and ruining their friendship. Or, can I please, please presume that Witherspoon is one of the friends, not the object of affection for two men?
That would be a bold twist that Fox likely wouldn’t explore. Too “Being John Malkovich,” not enough “There’s Something About Mary” or “Feeling Minnesota” (all these films star Cameron Diaz, coincidentally). Of course, the Hollywood ending would probably cop out and suppress the lesbianism aspect by having Cooper and Witherspoon’s spy buddies make up, make out and fall in love with each other. Probably because that dream woman (cast Diaz!) turns out to be a bad guy or something.
Whatever the case, if McG is on board, I’m still looking forward to this. I’m one of the few people not embarrassed to say I like both “Charlie’s Angels” movies and really enjoyed the director’s “Terminator” sequel and ideas for continuing the series. I could definitely see him doing something fun along the lines of the “Charlie’s” movies combined with “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”
I also urge all McG haters out there to watch the director in the FunnyOrDie video where he’s directing Rachel Bilson in a sex scene for a fake film called “Hearts of Palm.” Hilarious and disturbing.
Can you see McG’s talents benefiting “This Means War” or would you prefer another director be hired? Would you rather the filmmaker do more action comedies or be allowed to continue the “Terminator” franchise?
Here are a couple videos from last night at the Golden Globe Awards. I’m having a hard time finding a video of them actually winning the award, but I did find videos of the cast at the E! After Party and at the Press Room. Enjoy. :)
First off, I would like to congratulate Bradley and the rest of the cast and crew for winning Best Motion Picture – Comedy Or Musical for The Hangover. Second, I added photos of Bradley from the show. Captures and videos coming soon. Enjoy! :)

I honestly had no idea Bradley was going to be attending the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. So I unfortunately didn’t get to let you guys know before hand. But I did get some photos of the show. I’ll also be working on getting videos and captures of the show too so you guys can see it. Also, I want to congratulate Bradley and the rest of cast and crew of The Hangover for winning Best Comedy for The Hangover. Congratulations! Enjoy the photos! :)

The very first trailer for Bradley’s new movie The A-Team has been released! It looks awesome and I can’t wait to see the movie! Unfortunately the video isn’t that great of quality. Enjoy! :)
Bradley Cooper might be the break-out star of 2009. With all this new-found power and pitched roles crowding his luxury condo (presumably), what does he have his eyes on in 2010? The Hangover 2, that’s what.
Cooper has revealed that he is exciting to begin production on the sequel to the sleeper hit of the summer of 2009, The Hangover. Oddly, Cooper, who is also starring in The A-Team, said he’d sign up for The Hangover 2 even if the script was terrible.
“Even if it’s not a good script, I’d do it! When you have an experience like this with people you get along with, it’s a rarity,” says Cooper. “So if someone says, ‘Do you want to spend three months doing it again?’ In a heartbeat!”
The Hangover made an amazing $462 million worldwide last year and was produced on a budget of only $35 million.
Cooper adds: “It’s a very intimate thing you go through, shooting a movie. You find out whether you really like somebody, or you very much dislike somebody pretty fast. It’s like doing a sport together.”
The Hangover 2 is due out in the summer of 2011 while The A-Team hits theaters this summer.
I just added 500+ captures of Bradley from Late Night with David Letterman that he appeared on a couple days ago. I’m having some problems uploading the video, but hopefully it will be up by tomorrow. Enjoy! :)
