terminator 4 concept Terminator 4: McG Wants To Assure Fans
First concept art from Terminator Salvation. Go to the official blog for a larger version.

Above is the first concept art from the Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins (which I think should be shortened to just Terminator Salvation).

If you’ve followed the development of the movie here you’ll know that it’s been a love/hate thing with good news followed by bad and then by good. Well McG, seemingly plugged in to what’s being said about the film online has chimed in with and initial post on what I assume will be the production blog for the film.

On the blog he assures fans of the franchise that he has sat down and spoken with both James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenneger regarding this latest installment. On the additional “good news” front, he’s enlisted the services of legendary visual effects man Stan Winston for the film. Stan is the guy who actually managed to design and build a wearable suit of Iron Man armor for that film.

While Christian Bale seems an awesome fit for John Connor, I just can’t wrap my head around a baby-faced Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese. If you recall Reese was played by Michael Biehn whose face looked like it was carved out of granite.

He talks more about Bale, Yeltsin and the start of principal photography, but he doesn’t address the PG-13 issue. Click on the link below for more.

T4 is scheduled to open on May 22, 2009.
