UPDATE - Just got word earlier this morning that it's a done deal and Helena Bonham Carter will be filming are very substantial (in importance not necessarily in size) part in TERMINATOR SALVATION. The character is not Sarah Connor, as speculated below, but someone named "Serena." Hmmm.....
Could Helena Bonham Carter be joining in to help battle cybernetic organisms in the upcoming TERMINATOR film? The Hollywood Reporter says this morning that Carter is in talks with Warner Bros. to join TERMINATOR SALVATION: THE FUTURE BEGINS in a "small but pivotal" role. What that role is, I haven't the slightest idea but I'd love the idea of Helena Bonham Carter playing a Terminator herself (though I suspect she's playing some incarnation of Sarah Connor). The good news, we have an first-hand opportunity to further investigate this scoop but to say more about that would be spoiling the fun. You'll just have to wait and see! Filming on TERMINATOR SALVATION is underway in New Mexico with Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood, Bryce Dallas Howard and Common all starring. Luckily we won't have to wait long for word on what the film looks like - a teaser trailer with actual footage will be attached to prints of THE DARK KNIGHT.
|Extra Tidbit:||Carter once starred as a doctor on "Miami Vice."|
