    More "Terminator 4" Plot Details 01-07-2008 (13:00:32) [​IMG]James Middleton, an associate producer on the upcoming fourth "Terminator" film, told Sci Fi Wire that California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will definitely not be in the movie. In fact, he will not show up in any of the contemplated sequels either.

    Middleton also disputed earlier reports about the role of John Connor, saying that the character will definitely be central in the film. Middleton said that the movie will also introduce a key new character.

    "It's post-apocalyptic," he said. "It's set after the events of [Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines], where we see the nuclear exchange at the end of the movie, and we show what the world is like after this event, and we show how people try to deal in a post-apocalyptic world. And we introduce a new character, who becomes very important to the resistance and to John Connor, a new hero. It's really about the birth of a new hero."

    As for John Connor, who was played in "T3" by Nick Stahl: "I would look at him as a character that is introduced and that will grow in the second and third movies of the trilogy," Middleton said. No actor has officially been chosen yet to play Connor in "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins," though "Batman Begins" star Christian Bale is rumored to be in line for the role.

    With regard to Schwarzenegger, Middleton said the original cyborg was approached about a possible role or cameo before he was elected to office. "He has been approached, and in the early days of our development of 'T4,' one of our producers, Andy Vajna, who's a good friend of his, spoke to him about doing a cameo," Middleton said. "This was even before he was governor. But we know now that he is governor, he's got priorities that are above doing movies."

    As far as the current status of the movie: "We're in active preproduction," Middleton said. "We hope that the [writers'] strike ends soon so we can do a rewrite, but we're planning on going into production in April."
    Still not sure about this one...

    Well, everybody is a critic anymore. I like movies for what they are - movies. So what if they take creative license. So what if it isn't just like real life. I like more movies than most people because I watch them without judging them. Some movies(scifi originals) do tend to make me sick because of the cookie-cutter patterns they employ.
