Terminator 4 Powers Ahead

Things continue to roll despite the possibility of an actors strike.

Cameras began rolling this week on the latest Terminator movie – estimated to cost about $150 million U.S. – for what many Hollywood watchers say is a late start given concerns that labour tensions could lead to an actors strike by July.

Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, began shooting Monday in New Mexico, bucking a trend in which studios have mostly avoided launching new productions they cannot be sure of completing before the Screen Actors Guild contract expires on June 30.

But don't look for the Governator in this one. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) was the last film in the franchise to star Arnold Schwarzenegger as the unstoppable cyborg from the future who made the line, "I'll be back," a worldwide catchphrase.

The fourth Terminator is set to reach theaters in May 2009.
I know a few of us think we'll see California Governor Schwarzenegger out here -- for something. But he's a little concerned about big movie productions (like Terminator) leaving the state, so it seems a little less likely.

As reported in, Schwarzenegger says, "I've never had a dialogue with anyone about it. But if they shoot the movie in California, I would (be a part of it), yes”
