McG Helms Next Terminator

Moviehole reports that McG (“Charlie’s Angels”) will direct Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins,” the upcoming fourth installment in the popular franchise.

Said to be the first in a new trilogy of films, “Terminator Salvation” is set in the future and shows off the full-scale war between Skynet and the last of humanity.

Shooting is scheduled to begin early next year, based on a script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris that was locked in October. The film is currently aiming for a Summer 2009 release.
