T4 & Celestine In The Works

Two scoops have come in on two anticipated projects which look like they are finally going into development at last:

Producer Mario Kassar recently spoke to a Lebanese film magazine regarding production for Terminator 4 and TheArnoldFans transcribed a copy of the key elements of the article:

"T4 is in the works. The screenplay will be ready in 8 or 9 months. Once we have that, we will proceed with the production. The question that has never been answered in all the Terminator films is time travel. You can come from the future to change the present. But we never see how they go back to the future, which is a subject that can be explored. I think you already know where T4 is going from the ending of T3".

Meanwhile FilmJerk has learned from its sources that James Redfield’s “The Celestine Prophecy”, a novel that spent more than three years on the New York Times’ bestseller list, has gained financing from Barnet Bain Films and is now looking to cast its lead actors for a late March principal photography start.

Location wise things will be shot in Los Angeles and Ocala, FL. Armand Mastroianni, a veteran of television movies and series, has been tapped as the director. 'Celestine' has sold nearly 12 million copies in print in more than 40 languages worldwide.
