Although Arnold Schwarzenegger seemed unsure about the future of the Terminator franchise, California’s govenor knows one thing for sure: a paycheck is a paycheck.
After months of speculation, it turns out the former action star will be included in the upcoming sequel after all. But unlike his recent work for The Expendables, this gig will not require any time away from his day job. According to Variety, all that he needed to do was put a thumb up. Director McG has incorporated Schwarzenegger’s image using a body mold that was cast in a previous installment. The final digital result will appear as a live actor.
Arnold won’t be the only veteran included in next month’s blockbuster. It was previously announced that Linda Hamilton will provide a short voice over as well.
Terminator Salvation premieres on May 21.

Judging by the scenes in this new Terminator Salvation trailer, I suspect many will soon forget the recent Christian Bale controversy.
I mean - if you were up against human-snatching robots, wouldn’t you drop a few F-bombs too?

Salvation storms into theaters on May 22, 2009.
A personal tragedy has forced Helena Bonham Carter to temporarily stop work on Terminator Salvation.
The 42-year-old, who had been filming in New Mexico, has reportedly been given indefinite leave after a fatal minibus crash.
The incident, which happened Wednesday in South Africa, killed four of Helena’s relatives. The group had been on safari when the tire of their VW van supposedly blew out, causing the vehicle to roll.
Although Fiona Bonham Carter (the actress’ cousin) survived the accident, her 14-year-old son, mother, stepfather and sister-in-law were all killed. Fiona’s 16-year-old son and brother also survived.
Helena and boyfriend Tim Burton are both said to be traveling to Britain to support the family.

Even though he should have been concerned with more pressing issues (e.g. aftershocks, wildfires), California Governor Arnold Schwarznegger took time out last week to talk about another thing matter close to his heart.
As a courtesy, Schwarzenegger was recently given an advanced look at some of the scenes from Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins. The former actor, who starred in the three previous films, won his state’s recall election shortly before T3 hit the screens.

Could Christian Bale be any hotter? Even though The Dark Knight is the most-anticipated picture this summer, the actor’s next blockbuster is just as buzzworthy.
Here is your first glimpse of Bale playing John Connor in next year’s Terminator Salvation.
Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins hits theaters on May 22, 2009.
In hopes of broadening their movie’s audience, the producers of Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins have announced they’re aiming for a PG-13 stamp. This move would be a departure from the first three installments which were all rated R.
Devotees of the series might find this bit of news a little upsetting. Would a dialed-down film also mean a watered-down Terminator? Meanwhile, younger fans of the FOX series are probably thrilled by this announcement. Now they’ll get to follow along on the big screen.

Although many critics had hoped The Bourne Ultimatum would be seriously considered for a Best Film award, the thriller did walk away with three statues at Sunday’s Academy Awards. (The movie won for Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound mixing.) Now it appears the Bourne series could have a another chance at even more nominations.
According to Variety, Universal is already planning a fourth installment for the action franchise. Better yet - director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon will also be on board. This news comes as surprise to many. Even though the trilogy definitely had an audience and respect, it appeared that the story could have run its course. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly back in August, Damon admitted that the long production was basically being written on the fly.
No projected release date has been announced yet. Both Greengrass and Damon have other commitments to attend to first.

As I glanced over the film’s imdb page, the seemingly random advert for the Rescue Dawn DVD flashing across the screen felt auspiciously ironic.
I never saw the third installment of the Terminator franchise, though the recently announced trilogy and Fox’s Sarah Connor Chronicles lead me to believe there’s still a growing fan base; bringing Bale on board will only strengthen T4‘s chances of success. With director McG (Charlie’s Angels, We Are Marshall) at the helm, and as long as a decent script surfaces and the aging Governator keeps his small cameo small, this casting news may bring a glint of hope to the future of the Terminator series.
Look for Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins in theaters sometime in June of 2009.
UPDATE: Devin Faraci over at CHUD is now reporting that his source pegged Bale as the Terminator, and other buzz regarding the issue may point to another character entirely. Stayed
