McG Has a Spring Awakening


McG (upcoming Terminator Salvation) is in talks to bring the Broadway rock musical “Spring Awakening” to the big screen, developing it with original book and lyrics writer Steven Sater, says The Hollywood Reporter.

McG is attached to direct and would act as a producer.

Set in 19th-century Germany, the coming-of-age story follows a group of teens discovering their sexuality and dealing with high-wire topics like masturbation, abortion, rape and suicide.

Sater and rocker Duncan Sheik based the musical on an 1891 German play and their resulting work resulted in a runaway Broadway success.
