Bale is in talks to star as John Connor (now in his 30s) in the fourth installment of "Terminator," now called "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins."
McG (why him?) is directing the project for Warner Bros.
So Bale's film future is shaping up to be:
Summer 2008 "The Dark Knight"
Summer 2009 "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins"
The actor, known to bounce from indie-fare to commercial flicks, is also attached to "Killing Pablo," about the late Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar (I just finished reading the gripping Rolling Stone article about America's failed war on drugs).
I love Christian Bale! I had a great interview with him for "The Prestige." He's incisive and thoughtful, and sweet!
