Rumor Mill: Has Terminator 4 Been Terminated?

Has Terminator 4 been Terminated? UGO's Movie Blog claims that a crew member "was recently overheard discussing his newfound free schedule due to the production shutting down." For now we'll mark this rumor as unconfirmed and hope for clarification, confirmation, or denial from the Halcyon Company in the coming days.

I was actually pretty excited for the fourth film in the franchise. The producers involved seemed to have a clearly laid out plan for a new trilogy. And while many have prune-faced director McG, most have praised the casting of Christian Bale as John Connor, Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese, Avatar's Sam Worthington, and Josh Brolin rumored to be on board as the Terminator.

Production is (or maybe was) set to begin later this month at Budapest Korda Studios. Terminator 4 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 22nd 2009.
