McG Declares “War” On Romantic Comedy

Action director McG (“Terminator Salvation,” “Charlie’s Angels”) is trying out a romantic comedy as he’s in negotiations to direct “This Means War” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Bradley Cooper plays one of two life-long friends who fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon) and end up fighting as they vie for her affections in New York City.

The film has been in development since Fox initially picked it back up in 1998. In the years since various names have been attached, no word if any of them will still be involved.
