I guess the old phrase is correct: "In Hollywood, you're only as good as your last picture!"
In this case, we're referring to McG whose upcoming Terminator: Salvation won't hit theatres for another five months. But considering its (so far) positive buzz, it appears the Charlie's Angels director is being offered damn-near every major gig in town.
According to Variety, McG has been set up over at Disney to direct 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo - a prequel detailing the origins of Nemo which is currently being written by Bill Marsilli (Deja Vu).
The House of the Mouse is fast-tracking the project hoping to commence filming later this year.
This is also begs to ask just where McG stands on Terminator 5.
Considering that Warner Brothers has already officially announced the Terminator sequel for a Summer 2011 release, it appears that McG (who will reportedly over-see the production regardless of whether or not he directs) will have to decide which film he'd rather helm next.
