T4's Bale Signs For Three

Christian Bale is to play rebel leader John Connor in three sequels to the Terminator franchise, BBC News (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7411013.stm) reported.

The Welsh-born star, who is soon to be seen in the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight, has already started shooting the first of those films, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, the news service reported.

"He read the script, and he loved it, so he's signed on for all three," Derek Anderson, business partner of Halcyon films' Victor Kubicek, told the BBC.

McG (Charlie's Angels) is directing the first prequel film, which is slated for release on May 22, 2009.

Awesome. Bale is a very good actor. Its going to be weird watching Terminator movies without Arnold though.

Every Bale movie is great. He's probably my favorite actor, expecially for what he did in The Machinist role.

Reign of Fire wasn't bad imo, but Harsh Times was the worst Bale movie i have ever seen. He is a great actor though

Forgot about Harsh Times, that was a bit of a disappointment. From the preview it looked like it had a lot of potential but all the movie tried to accomplish was to show how nuts his character was. It was pretty well-acted, but couldn't overcome the horseshit script.

Agreed...lets drive in a car most of the time or drink, im sure it was filmed behind a highschool and a neighborhood.

I didn't get to see the Sarah Connor Chronicles, I'll have to rent the series on DVD. But I'll watch anything with Bale in it, he's a damn good actor IMO. Plus I love the Terminator movies, granted, the 3rd one wasn't all that but I still enjoyed the story.

It's got to be a better story than S.M. Stirling's books set after T2. Doesn't it?

???? You must be real easy to please for movies..

Reign of Fire was a total mess... Kind of like 'In the Name of the King,' the movie is just there, no real plot or thought into it..

Everyone's a critic. :shake:

The scene with the skydivers was pretty cool. It was by no means a classic, but it was worth at least a view.
