McG says no more Charlie's Angels films

By Casey LaMarca

McG seems to have begun a string of smart choices.

The filmmaker has stated that he will never again direct a Charlie's Angels movie. After directing the first two in the series and being the man behind the upcoming Terminator Salvation, McG says it's time for a change, and wants to focus more on science-fiction related projects.

"I'm trying to grow and work in genres that I'm most comfortable working in," says McG. "I got started in Charlie's Angels, and I wish them every success with another sequel." While the director has moved on, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu are set to reprise their roles for the third installment.

"But these are the films that I grew up feeling very passionate about. The Terminator. Blade Runner. The Kubrick pictures."

McG is signed on to direct another Terminator flick (which would be the fifth installment in the franchise) and is rumored to helm 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, which is shooting for a 2011 release.

Terminator Salvation will open nationwide on May 21st.
