Our industry insider is telling us that McG has replaced Pete Berg as the director of the big screen adaptation for Vertigo/DC Comics “The Losers”.
The Losers was a comic published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Jock (Mark Simpson) that was based on an obscure old DC Comic following a team of soldiers in WWII. It is believed that the new film will follow the updated storyline that deals with a team of “special forces” soldiers who declare war after being betrayed and left for dead by their own superiors.
McG was long slated to be the director of the Superman movie before joining a long list of directors who ended up NOT making the SUperman movie. He’s also rumored to be making a remake of FANTASTIC VOYAGE, a movie about a tiny Raquel Welch in a very tight rubber suit voyaging deep inside a human body in a little submarine.
