If you’ve been hoping for a new film from McG, you won’t have to search much further than Netflix soon! The director has just announced that his third film is coming to everyone’s favorite streaming service and is a sci-fi adventure flick called ‘Rim of the World’! It sounds like it will be a perfect fit for the network and fans of ‘Stranger Things‘ and the reasoning behind that is the description of the film:
The movie is an epic adventure involving four misfit teenagers who become unlikely allies when their summer camp experience is cut short by an alien invasion. The teens must work together, overcome their fears and insecurities and work as a team as they attempt to save the world.
There is no word if this will also fit in an 80’s time period which seems perfect for what is being described but regardless it sounds like it’ll be fun. With ‘The Babysitter’ we’ve already seen that McG can set a movie like this in modern times and not have it feel forced.
McG’s past works on the streaming service were the extremely fun 2017 horror comedy ‘The Babysitter’ as well as the rom-com ‘When We First Met.’ Not everyone was thrilled with the premise behind McG’s second outing but ‘The Babysitter’ was a lot of fun and if it is any hint as to what we’ll see it is clear that we’ll have a winner on our hand.
The screenplay was penned by Zack Stentz (‘Thor,”X-Men: First Class’) and will be produced by McG’s Wonderland and Mary Viola. Production will begin in May, so I expect that we’ll have a slew of casting announcements being revealed shortly.
With production beginning this year, filming for this shouldn’t take as long as ‘The Babysitter’ did though as that had initially been announced in 2014.
