I saw on the news this morning that the script has been written, a director has been signed and production is set to start on Terminator 4 and should be released to theatres next year sometime. There is no word on whether or not the Governator himself, Arnold S., will take the lead. It's suspected that he will pass on this one.

As far as I'm concerned there is no other Terminator.

That is no surprise. The ending of T3 was a set up for another movie.
Without Arnie it just won't be the same.

Seeing as arnie is the terminator, it just won't be terminator at all.

Started watching it, turned it off pretty sharpish.
then they had that crap-o-tastic alien v. predator recently. gimme a break.
Not even gonna bother with it, just the thought is enough.

edsignuk, do you feel that "crap-o-tastic" is an adequate description? :)

T3 kind of left it open for another movie to be made, but i would guess that it won't be made anytime soon. The first two were 7 years apart and the last two where 12 years apart. I would like to see a fourth movie, but it would have to have arnold in it and he probably won't make anymore until he is done being governor.

well, they stated this morning that it's set to come out next year regardless of Arnold. if it does...whoever said Made for TV Movie might be right.

That'll do nicely :)

Well, as you'll know from the file name, it's Keira Knightly. Of course, I don't "know" her, how many film "stars" do you know?. I just think she's a real beauty, and makes great avatars...that seem to get a lot of interest, it would seem I'm not the only one who think she's a bit of alright ;) :D

Anyway, back to how much a T4 would suck like nothing else...other than maybe Predator 2/Alien vs predator :p

IMDB.com doesn't have anything on it yet, but it could be a real movie. I could see the studio releasing a new one in an effort to cash in while T3 (2003) is still in the public's minds.

While having arnold in it would definitely improve it, i am not sure that he could really be in it anymore.

T4 would have to be about starting the resistance movement and wouldn't be far enough in the future to be when arnold was captured and reprogrammed by the resistance. Sure they could have arnold be sent back in time again, but that is getting a bit old.

i'm not familiar with her. what movies has she been in? or is she a british phenom?

Arnold should come out with a movie with Eddie Murphy called "Kindergarten Cops vs. Daddy Day Care" or "Jingle All the Way meets the Toilet" by himself. haha i crack myself up...

don't remove him from office though...he seems to be doing good for Cali so far.

It is called 'direct-to-video'. I can only assume there is no money being spent on this project. It will be the first terminator without special effects.

It is scary how we both came up with that and posted it at the same time.
I've had 4 PM's since I changed the 'tar about an hour ago asking who she is, I've sent this link quite a few times tonight :)

she could be in the next T4 movie with ahnuld.
But there's no way on earth that arnie will be in it.

I actually thin Arnold ruins the movies actually. In reality the Terminators are suppose to look different and the ones that get sent back in time only do because they look similar to the first model. In the first Terminator there was even a future scene with a non-arnold Terminator (one of the future flash-backs Reese has).

Terminator 3 actually would have been better IMO, if at the end instead saving John Connor, Arnold actually attacks them. Then Connor would have had to escape the Arnold bot. Good times.

It is time to the let the Terminator die. The 'franchise' is dead, so leave it dead. I hate when film makes try to milk the same old story line over and over again. In fact they should have stopped after T2. Not every good movie needs to be in a trilogy.

But then we wouldn't have had all the Halloween, Nightmare on Elm St., and Jason Vorhees flicks. We all need a little Jason X everynow and then especially when he gets onto a spaceship somehow.

edesign - i disagree, ahnuld would look at your girl there and feel a desire to be in a movie with her. remember, he grabs girls butts (or at least he does from what others say)

Thanks for proving my point.
Arnie has big hands, I am sure her butt would be too small for him to even notice. Now if Keira had a twin.. :D One for each of his hands.
