Christian Bale Is John Conner In New Terminator Movie

— Posted by John Campea

Christain-Bale-TerminatorWell holy crap. The other day we reported to you guys that McG was signed on to direct the next Terminator installment tentatively titled “Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins” (bad title). I don’t think McG is a very good fit for a project like Terminator. However, there must be some people out there who love the idea because according to the guys at Ain’t It Cool News they’ve just cast the lead guy.

Yeah, the man who will play the lead character, John Conner (who was played by Nick Stahl in T:3 and Edward Furlong in T:2) is none other than Batman himself… Christian Bale. AICN gives us this:

Just got off the phone with an extremely trusted source who has never been wrong before. he revealed exclusively to AICN that in the upcoming McG reboot, TERMINATOR SALVATION: The Future Begins, that they have cast CHRISTIAN BALE as none other than JOHN CONNER. you folks know what that means… THIS IS GOING TO KICK ASS!!!

If this indeed turns out to be true, then it’s one hell of a pull off. Nabbing Christian Bale for this would instantly bring a lot of credibility to the new Terminator movie that quite frankly has been missing.

Still… I disagree with Harry here… remember folks, Christian Bale isn’t WRITING the movie. A bad line is still a bad line weather Christian Bale or Pee-Wee Herman says it. Still… this can be seen as nothing but good news for Terminator fans.

    Man, I heard them talking about Christian Bale signing on for a new movie on the TV and I got all excited thinking it was going to be about Metal Gear Solid… This is still good to hear though, certainly a step in the right direction! :D

    Cheers!

    “A bad line is still a bad line weather Christian Bale or Pee-Wee Herman says it. ”

    How true…look at all the ridiculous dialogue Bale had to spew out in “Batman Begins”.

    I won’t believe this until we get something a bit more substantial than a tid-bit from a “trusted source”.

    I hope this is UNTRUE! No! Bale No!…

    Phuck Dis..another good actor sold off!

    Yeah, I know he works for $$$, but there’s a difference(at least in my naive mind) between getting paid to do something that you just so happen to be passionate about, and just having money flung in your face to participate in a shitty-sounding project. To me, this is on par with Terrence Stamp starring in Elektra or Ben Kingsley starring in Bloodrayne. Blatant money-grabbing without regard for the project’s quality.

    Now, Bale isn’t a dumb guy. If he’s signed onto this project, he knows more than I do about it. This could be an outstanding movie, but the name McG attached to any film is an immediate red flag.

"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol… as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting."
