McG’s Wonderland To Start Production on Third Netflix Film, ‘Rim of the World’

Director-producer McG is set to begin production on his third film at Netflix, a science-fiction adventure film, titled “Rim of the World,” Netflix announced Tuesday.

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.

Production is set to begin in May.

McG is best known for directing action pictures, including “Charlie’s Angels” and its sequel, “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.” His other directing credits include “Terminator Salvation” and “3 Days to Kill.”

The screenplay is by Zack Stentz, whose other writing credits include “Thor,” “X-Men: First Class” and “Agent Cody Banks.”

McG’s Wonderland and Mary Viola are producing the film. Also producing are Circle of Confusion’s Susan Solomon and Matt Smith. This is Wonderland’s third production at Netflix. The previous two were “The Babysitter” and “When We First Met.” Executive producers are Stentz and Brad Mendelsohn.

Stentz is represented by WME and Circle of Confusion. McG is also represented by WME and Management 360. David Weber and AJ Brandenstein of Sloane Offer Weber and Dern LLP negotiated the production deal on Wonderland’s behalf.
