    McG, who directed this summer's forthcoming Terminator: Salvation, is in discussions to develop a film version of the Broadway musical Spring Awakening. McG is attached to direct and produce the project.

    The director has yet to set the project up at a studio, even though McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision has a first-look deal with Warner Bros. The story is set in 19th Century Germany and is a coming-of-age tale that centers on a group of teenagers who are discovering the depths of their sexuality and dealing with hot-button issues like masturbation, abortion, and suicide. The stage version won four Tony awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Actor.

    McG has a musical background, having produced records and directed music videos before helming big budget action flicks.
