McG, he of such classics as TERMINATOR SALVATION and CHARLIE’S ANGELS, is tackling romantic comedies for his next project. THIS MEANS WAR will star Bradley Cooper and Reese Witherspoon. Of course, McG doesn’t do stories or plots, so somehow this romantic comedy will end up in total destruction. And that’s not just a joke, the basic premise of the film is that two best friends fall in love with the same girl (Witherspoon) and their ensuing battle for her love results in the complete destruction of New York City.
Leave it to McG to find a way to make an outrageously expensive romantic comedy. But all joking aside, this actually sounds like a decent idea for a movie as long as the stretch from “two friends battling” to “world destruction” isn’t too unbelievable.
