As if the letter-writing campaign started turning some heads, Fox is going to shoot McG into space for an as-yet-untitled action film. This is actually perfect for the director, especially considering the project was scripted from Doom and Expendables screenwriter David Callaham.

Why is it perfect?

Because it’ll be completely generic, harmless action set in space with CGI as the main character. This is based completely on the director’s past work, to be fair. It also keeps in mind that he’s not a terrible director; he’s just aggressively average. Fortunately, he might have some surprises up his sleeve with his forthcoming black comedy This Means War, but it’s unlikely that he’s suddenly gained talent beyond middling-hood.

If there was any doubt that we were in the zone of diminished returns on the sci-fi craze started by District 9, this should eradicate it. On the other hand, there’s no word on how this will affect, if at all, the Ouija board movie McG is set to do, but they should already have a prop that can give us that information.
