McG will direct the Magic Castle movie for Fox
Last week, we reported that 20th Century Fox and Radar Pictures are teaming up to make a movie based on the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood. The project is picking up even more steam now, with news that McG has signed on to direct.

Nothing is known about the story for this drama, although it will likely have something to do with the establishment's rich history. The club has been around since the early 1900s, although it became completely private in 1963. To this day, guests must be invited by a member in good standing to gain entrance and watch the nightly magic shows.

Andrew Barrer and Gabe Ferrari are writing the screenplay, with Ted Field and Mike Weber producing for Radar Pictures.

McG will soon begin production on Three Days to Kill, starring Kevin Costner. When that project wraps in February, the director will turn his attention to the Magic Castle project.
