Christian Bale Signs on for Terminator Trilogy
Christian Bale has signed on to play John Connor in the Terminator trilogy (the fourth installment in the franchise). Filming has already begun on Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins.
Christian Bale isn’t just starring in the upcoming Terminator franchise reboot. The Dark Knight star is signed for an entire trilogy of flicks in which he’ll play resistance leader John Conner.
The producers of Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, which has already begun filming, revealed the scoop to BBC News.
Producer Victor Kubicek said, “Christian was our first choice and he’s a big fan of The Terminator, so we’re very lucky. But with Batman he’s already done the whole franchise thing, so we weren’t sure he’d respond.”
“Luckily,” said The Halcyon Company’s Derek Anderson, “he read the script and he loved it, so he’s signed on for all three.”
There’s no word on whether the other Terminator Salvation stars — Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Common, Moon Bloodgood — will be reprising their roles in subsequent flicks.
The next Terminator installment, directed by McG, will make its bow worldwide on May 22, 2009.
