EXCLUSIVE: Summit Entertainment is in talks with McG to direct Puzzle Palace, the cop drama script by David Guggenheim. Summit acquired the project at a pitch early last year from Guggenheim after the scribe sold the spec script Safe House to Universal, which set Daniel Espinoza to direct Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Puzzle Palace is being produced by Temple Hill partners Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, who produce the Twilight series for Summit. McG most recently directed the 20th Century Fox comedy This Means War with Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon. McG is repped by WME and Management 360.
