Love him or hate him, McG has taking his slick MTV style approach to directing and produced enough eye candy to keep one entertained for a few hours. Next up for McG is the Oni Press adaptation of Maintenance for Warner Bros.
Joe Ballarini is adapting the project, which follows the exploits of two janitors who work at Terrormax Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of weapons and doomsday devices to supervillains. As comicbook’s conceit goes, if they’re not too busy cleaning up toxic spills and performing menial repairs on time machines, they just might save the world.
I love this quote from McG on the project, “Some of the films that made me want to become a director like ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ are based on action, comedy and ground-breaking special effects,” McG said. “It is my goal to make ‘Maintenance’ in the same tradition.”
If that is the case, this is going to be the kick ass movie of all time – Back to the Raiders of the Lost Future! Don’t make me cry like you did with Charlie’s Angels 2 McG. Don’t make me cry…
