Deadline.com reports that Summit Entertainment is in talks to hire McG (Terminator Salvation) to direct Puzzle Palace, a cop drama penned by David Guggenheim. McG recently finished lensing This Means War, a rom-com starring Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as CIA agents who compete for the same girl (Reese Witherspoon), which opens February 17, 2012. He had been slated to direct Ouija next, but Universal’s recent abandonment of the Hasbro board-game adaptation has left the project in limbo. No word yet on when Puzzle Palace plans to start production.
