Terminator 4: Rise of the McG?

Also: Vin Diesel might have a thing for fourth installments.

It looks like those rumors about Terminator 4 arriving in 2009 might have been on target — according to a report published at CHUD on Tuesday, the sequel has been fast-tracked at Halcyon, and may even have found its director.

That director, according to the CHUD scooper known as Duckie, is none other than Charlie’s Angels and We Are Marshall helmer McG. The two sides are apparently just talking right now — but with production rumored to begin early next year, if a deal is going to be struck, it’ll need to happen soon. CHUD says the script was handed in last week, and they approve:

Terminator 4 is really the movie we’ve been waiting for and that Terminator 3 failed to deliver: it’s after the apocalypse and John Connor is organizing the surviving humans to resist Skynet’s army of robots. I imagine this would be the Terminator origin story — the first time a human looking robot is used to infiltrate the ranks of people. There’s something delightfully Planet of the Apes about taking the series into its own backstory like this.

Meanwhile, over at Ain’t It Cool News, scooper Quint says the folks at Halcyon may have settled on a replacement of sorts for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read on:

I’ve…heard another juicy rumor concerning someone who could slap his living tissue over metal endo-skeleton. I’m hearing that Vin Diesel is taking meetings with the Terminator people and the assumption is it’s about him being a Terminator… of course, I’d love it if they cast him as one of the resistance fighters instead, but I could see him being a good Terminator.

It seems altogether likely that, nine out of ten times, the phrase “fast-tracked pre-strike sequel starring Vin Diesel” will prove to be a fancy way of saying “cinematic disaster” — but you never know. Right?
