No Bale in T4 game

03.04.2009

Those of you who pick up the video game based on TERMINATOR SALVATION later this year will recognize the voice and likenesses of stars Common, Moon Bloodgood and oddly Rose McGowan who isn't even in the film. But one person you won't recognize is John Connor. That's because Christian Bale has refused to participate in the game and will not be lending his likeness or voice to the John Connor character. We're not exactly sure why Bale won't be participating (he can't completely hate video games because he lent his voice to the BATMAN BEGINS game) but it's sure to disappoint his many fans. While they weren't keen to get into the Bale situation, one of the game's developers spoke to GamePro about why McGowan has joined the storyline:

"Another character that really becomes a key player in the story, but does not appear in the movie is Angie Salter, an ex-high school teacher (voiced by the bloody fantastic Rose McGowan). Angie is on the verge of completely giving up any hope for humanity's survival and is gratingly cynical throughout the game. Her character arc has a profound effect on Connor.

And don't expect to see any Kyle Reese in the game but that has nothing to do with Anton Yelchin pulling a Bale. They explain that, "as the game is set two years before the movie, it did not make logical sense to have characters such as Kyle Reese appear in the game." You can read more about the TERMINATOR SALVATION game here at GamePro (thanks to Kotaku for the heads up).

Extra Tidbit: I wouldn't mind playing the game as one of the evil Terminator robots.

After seeing the T3 teaser at the beginning of Bad Boys 2...then seeing the movie it was a complete bust...way too comedic...maybe apatow was somwhere working the script a little...anyways i have way more expectations for T4 because its a fresh start and they can pretty much do anything they want with the story and the trailers look awesome...although the terminacycles are kinda odd. im definately game to see the movie!

Considering that 90% of movie games suck balls, I can easily see why Bale said "no way" to the game.

Blame that outburst tape

Something Tell's me that this is something that may have come out of the producers on T4 releasing that Bale Outburst tape to TMZ.

Oh well, it probably was a good idea for Bale to have nothing to do with what is sure to be another crappy movie cash-in.

I agree with Alcibiades. The reason why the humor worked so well in T2 is because of the genius of James Cameron's writing, but also because the comedic parts were away from the dangerous situations.

Each confrontation with the T-1000 was heart stopping and you feared for Connor and Arnie. All of the Connor/Arnie funny scenes were in between the action or when they were fixing their cars, getting ammo/guns etc.

If Salvation can be a bad ass sci-fi action flick that actually DOES take

Read an interview with Common lately

he was talking about his part (both in the game and the movie), and how his character was "cracking jokes while taking on armies of Terminators".

I'm quite optimistic about the movie, but I sure hope it's a serious flick and Common was overstating his role of comedic foil. After last summer's oeverdose of silly action-comedies (Wanted, Hancock, Iron Man...) I wouldn't mind watching a science fiction flick that's not afraid of being serious. Not even dark, just serious. We all know how well

Indeed

They should make a video game where you play as world-famous actor Christian Bale and walk around a GTA-esque city randomly shouting at people for stepping in front of your lighting, whenever you want. You can bitchslap pretzel vendor owners and ask them what they don't fucking understand, then go run out in front of cars and pull them over to the side of the road and pull out the drivers and scream, "WHERE IS HEEEEE" and slap them again and then drive around laughing maniacally.

Call it OUT

Call it OUT ON BALE.
