Rumors have been flying for a little bit, but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Christian Bale will indeed play John Conner in the upcoming Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins.
This is great news for Terminator 4, as Christian Bale is one of the best actors out there today. After helping transform Batman into a modern day franchise, Bale is in high demand right now, and should be making a good sum of money for this film. He rarely appears in a bad movie.
Unfortunately, this new Terminator movie does have two things going against it:
- McG is the director. This one better not look anything like Charlie’s Angels or I’m going postal.
- The title sucks. Call it Terminator Salvation, but what’s with The Future Begins? Honestly, it doesn’t need two extra titles.
