Remember earlier in the year when rumor spread across the interwebs that Josh Brolin would be playing a Terminator in McG’s Terminator Salvation? Well it turns out there was something to the rumor after all. Brolin admitted to MTV that he was in talks to join the production.
“Yeah. I talked to Christian [Bale] for a couple hours,” Brolin told MTV. “I really liked the script though I hear that’s not what they filmed. The one I read was very interesting and dark. Ultimately though I didn’t think it felt right.”
Brolin would probably have played the character of Marcus, which is played by Avatar star Sam Worthington in the completed film. And speaking of the completed film, McG told a German Newspaper that the final running time for the movie will be around 2 hours and 10 minutes! So those of you who are expecting a 90 or 100 minute popcorn movie, might want to think again.
