Here’s the gist: Arnold Schwarzenegger says that if Terminator 4 director McG wishes to bring his big budget sequel to the state of California for a few scenes, he’ll reprise his role as the T-800, albeit most likely in cameo form. Also, I’m guessing a big bag of cash, cigars, speedboats et al would play a factor as well. Here’s what the governator of Cali told ContactMusic

“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.”

Anyone else find it moderately surprising that Warner Bros. or McG hasn’t contacted him? With principle photography scheduled to begin on May 5th for the 2009 blockbuster starring Christian Bale, Sam Worthington and the newly cast Moon Bloodgood (I’m skeptical about her for this btw), do you guys and gals think they’ll work something out?

Moon Bloodgood Cast in Terminator 4

Good news for Terminator fans: First it was confirmed earlier this weekend that The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been renewed for a second season. Second, the rumor from last week that Terminator 4 had been shut down has turned out to be untrue after all. And now THR reports that Moon Bloodgood is in final negotiations for the female lead in McG’s upcoming film. Bloodgood will play a “no-nonsense and battle-hardened member of the resistance who is carrying a lot of guilt over surviving the nuclear holocaust.” You might remember Bloodgood from her role as Livia in NBC’s short-lived television series Journeyman. Principal photography is set to begin in two weeks, on May 5th, with the film set to hit theaters on May 22nd 2009.
