Terminator 4 Producers Talk Christian BalePosted by: PuppetMaster
EW had a chance to talk to the producers of Terminator 4 about the upcoming film and more specifically about the rumored Christian Bale role which Variety confirmed yesterday talks are happening. The producers have confirmed it but are not saying much new. When asked about casting Christian Bale Victor Kubicek said quote;
Producer Derek Anderson added:
The story at this point is that Christian Bale is going to take on a lead role in the upcoming Terminator 4: Salvation movie. He will play the role of none other then John Conners. This is HUGE news for the movie and has the potential to make this terminator film the biggest one yet. I am very excited to see where this goes. You will recall that the movie will be based further in the future and not around John Conner, instead it will be about his protege.
So with Christian Bale being tapped to play Conner now it sort of muddies the water on what it will all be about. We already know that Nick Stahl and Claire Danes will not be returning for the film. They told this to sci-fi a year or so ago. Nick also spilled the beans that the plot would take a twist and be based further into the future we just didnt pick up on it. Quote:
"I'm not going to be in T4," Stahl said in an interview while promoting his latest film, the upcoming Sin City. "None of the cast is coming back." Stahl said that the producers' current plans may not even include original Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is now the governor of California.
Stay tuned for more! Terminator 4 will still be one hell of a movie.. at least I hope it will be.
