Charlie’s Angels and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle director McG told WENN during an interview to promote the upcoming Terminator: Salvation that he’s ruled out returning to the Charlie’s Angels franchise…for a rather strange reason. Citing The Terminator, Blade Runner and the films of visionary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick as inspirations, McG says that he wants to work on more “male-dominated” movies, explaining that’s what he grew up enjoying.
McG wished luck to whomever might take over from him on Charlie’s Angels III, which will apparently still star Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, but says he had no interest in being behind the camera for the next installment of the franchise he was instrumental in reinvigorating.
And because I was unable to line up an interview with Keith Giffen for this month’s Gold Exchange installment examining Booster Gold #20, the extra turnaround time dedicated to trying ended up throwing off my schedule and the Q&A never made it to Blog@. Since this is another case of “a different guy’s in charge this time around,” I figured that was enough to justify plugging the column, which features an interview with artists Dan Jurgens and Patrick Olliffe, and which can be seen here.
