McG is certainly getting his dose of action films of late, signing on to a new project. According to Variety, McG will direct the adaptation of the forthcoming novel, Dead Spy Running.

The book, written by British author Jon Stock, will be published next summer and will be the first of a three-part series. The story revolves around a new spy starting up his training, who's said to be a cross between John LeCarre and Jason Bourne.

No production schedule has been released as of yet. McG just recently wrapped production on Terminator Salvation, which is set for a May 22, 2009 release.
