Middleton On Fourth Terminator

“The Sarah Connor Chronicles” producer James Middleton tells IGN Movies that “Terminator 4” is still very much happening at The Halcyon Company and revealed some new details.

Penned by Michael Ferris and John D. Brancato (“Terminator 3”) and intended to be the first of three new movies, the new one will follow the events of “T3” and be post-apocalyptic. While it’s not known whether Nick Stahl and Claire Danes will return, John Connor and Kate Brewster are indeed in the script.

The movie will feature a new hero which Middleton says would be like how “Ben-Hur was influenced by Jesus Christ, but it was his story. Much in that way, this character will be influenced by John Connor.” No director is set yet. Halcyon would like to be in pre-production in October for a 2009 release.
