Hitting bottom

Unless McG has substantially improved as a director since the instantly disposable Charlie's Angels pictures, I'm less than thrilled at the announcement that he will helm a--heavy sigh--"origins" story based on Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I'm ticked off that Disney is remaking its first live-action classic in the first place, and this really puts it into Davy Jones' locker for me. I bet the inevitable Johnny Depp--heavier sigh--will be approached to play Nemo. Meanwhile, McG has a fourth, Arnold-free installment of the tapped-out Terminator franchise due May 22. My pulse is racing...
