Well 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.
