The Christian Bale legacy continues. After a variety of rumors in the past week associating Bale with the upcoming Terminator: Salvation (the fourth movie of the Terminator franchise), some confirmation has finally come forward. While the actor hasn’t signed a contract, he is indeed in talks with Warner Brothers to be a part of the upcoming sequel and, yes, he is indeed talking about playing John Connor, not a new Terminator or a new, separate character as other sites would have you believe.

IN 1997, director Werner Herzog won numerous awards for his documentary Little Dieter Needs To Fly, a tribute to American serviceman Dieter Dengler, one of the few people to escape a Laotian prison camp during the Vietnam conflict.
Dengler sadly lost his battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 2001 but Herzog revisits this remarkable episode in wartime history in Rescue Dawn, his first dramatic feature written entirely in English. [Read more…] about Bale excels in a fitting tribute to a true-life hero
Christian Bale turns in one of his best performances in this true-life tale of German-American fighter pilot Dieter Dengler whose escapades after being shot down over Laos during the Vietnam War read like a Boy’s Own tale. Herzog brings us a compelling film about war, living with the madness that accompanies captivity and escape..all boiled down to the theme of how humans cope in the most trying of circumstances.
THE chameleon actor of his generation, Christian Bale goes above and beyond the call of duty to get into character for a role.
Often it’s purely research, like being taught to sing and play guitar for his stint as Bob Dylan in I’m Not There, or learning magic tricks from real magicians, as he did for his part in The Prestige. Other times he undergoes remarkable physical transformation, like going without sleep for prolonged periods and losing an untold amount of weight for his role as a skeletal insomniac in The Machinist, then gaining it all back, and then some, to portray the muscular superhero in Batman Begins.

This is the official article that was recently reported that Christian will be in the role of the upcoming terminator sequel in ‘Terminator 4’. He will be rumored to play as John Conner. I’ve absoutely no idea whether it is called official, but we will wait and find out. Actually, I love the movie of Terminator. So, can’t wait for him to star in!
Bruce Wayne is John Conner!!!
Hey folk Harry here. Just got off the phone with an extremely trusted source who has never been wrong before. he revealed exclusively to AICN that in the upcoming McG reboot, TERMINATOR SALVATION: The Future Begins, that they have cast CHRISTIAN BALE as none other than JOHN CONNER. you folks know what that means…
THIS IS GOING TO KICK ASS!!!
Hey folks, Harry here again… The above was posted by AICN’s Behind-The-Scenes God, RoRo – as Time-Warner knocked out my internet this morning in a widespread pre-emptive strike to attempt to silence the news that Bruce Wayne was John Conner… But I want y’all to think about this for a second. McG has done more than just CHARLIE’S ANGELS – his film WE ARE MARSHALL was a very solid and tonally realistic film. Personally – I love what McG did with CHARLIE’S ANGELS – it was fun, kinetic and exactly what that version of CHARLIE’S ANGELS should be. Then there’s the fact that he cast the T-1000 in WE ARE MARSHALL – which means, probably, he’s a fan of T2 – or just has the coolness to just recognize that Robert Patrick is the shit. Either way – He’s managed to cast Christian Bale in TERMINATOR SALVATION – and that’s pretty huge.
We know Bale takes his shit seriously. And if you saw 3:10 TO YUMA… just imagine him coming out of his mountain and beginning the process of taking out SKYNET. With Bale as Conner – that means that we have a great chance that McG is pulling a chair up and will deliver. It all depends on that script… it is obvious we’re dealing now with an adult, GREAT MILITARY LEADER storyline … How he got the remnants of civilization together, trained them, armed them and began a guerilla war that eventually, we hope, brings down SKYNET.
I for one am anxious as hell to see this done right. Let’s hope.
