The director: McG (a.k.a. Joseph McGinty Nichol) The crime: Forthcoming The story: Like Brett Ratner, McG has so far gone mostly unremarked-upon as a slick studio hack, turning out hyperactive summer tentpoles like the "Charlie's Angels" movies. But, also like Ratner, McG is tempting fate by treading into two revered franchises: "Terminator" and the British comedy series "Spaced." McG's "Spaced" remake didn't get picked up by the networks, but it appears his "Terminator 4" is moving forward.
