Moon Bloodgood – yes that is a real name – was most recently in the Screen Rant favorite TV series Journeyman and she is currently filming Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (but we don’t want to talk about that).
So what is going on with this Sci-Fi sequel/spin-off/restart/sequel/cash-in (delete where applicable).
So is the film in trouble?
No, I don’t think that the film is trouble.
Warners and Halcyon have spent too much time and money on this film to pull the plug. They couldn’t hope to get a more geek-tastic cast than Christian Bale, Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin – all of whom will be bigger stars a year from now.
Trust me… this isn’t another Justice League!
The shut down rumor came from UGO, which didn’t cite a reliable source… unless you believe this:
“…a crew member was recently overheard discussing his newfound free schedule due to the production shutting down.”
Not exactly a source that you would bet your life on. For all we know the dude could be talking about getting fired!
The Hollywood Reporter is a bit more reliable and let’s face it Terminator 4 was looking very under cast in the female lead department up until this point.
According to the trade:
“Bloodgood will play a no-nonsense and battle-hardened member of the resistance.”
It looks like the film is slowly coming together, but I won’t be excited until they start casting some serious Terminators. I mean that is what the film is called… and Worthington isn’t going to cut the mustard for me.
The film is set to begin shooting on May 5 and will open on May 22, 2009.
