T-4 update

ComingSoon.Net offers news (culled from IGN) about the planned TERMINATOR 4, which is being developed by producer James Middleton (who is bringing TEMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES to the small screen):

 The movie will feature a new hero. Middleton said the new hero 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.”

Michael Ferris and John D. Brancato, who wrote TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES, are slated to pen the next installment, which will be a direct sequel, with characters John Connor and Kate Brewster in a post-apocalyptic world following the nuclear armageddon that ended the previous film. The current plan is to start pre-production next month for a planned release in 2009. No director is attached to the project yet, and there is no word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger plans to take time off from his duties as governor of California in order to reprise his role as the Terminator.
