McG to Direct ‘The Babysitter’ for New Line

After winning the bidding war on the Brian Duffield spec script “The Babysitter,” McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision has set the project up at New Line with the “Charlie’s Angels” helmer on board to direct.

The film follows a twelve-year old boy and his babysitter on a night when things take an unexpected turn for the worst. McG was originally set to produce but decided to add directing to his duties on the project in order to realize his vision for the script.

Wonderland is co-financing through a partnership with Zack Schiller of Boies/Schiller Film Group. Schiller will serve as executive producer along with James McGough.

McG and Mary Viola will also produce. Duffield will exec produce along with Wonderland’s newly promoted vice president Steven Bello, who brought the project into the company.

Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter will oversee.

McG has been very active on the producing front with films like “The DUFF” and “Before You Go” but hasn’t helmed a film since the Kevin Costner action pic “3 Days to Kill.”

He is repped by WME, Management 360 and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern.
