Anton Yelchin Eyeing Role in Terminator 4

Also: Paul Haggis possibly coming in to brush up the script.

When you think of Anton Yelchin, do the words “post-apocalyptic warrior” come to mind?

McG certainly seems to hope so — according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’d like to cast Yelchin as Kyle Reese in Terminator 4, and the actor is in negotiations to take the role. Also contemplating a trip aboard the good ship Terminator is Paul Haggis, who is said to be in talks to “work on” the script.

If you don’t remember who Kyle Reese is or how he fits into the whole Terminator story, here’s a helpful breakdown, courtesy of the Reporter:

In “Salvation,” the character is a young version of the one played by Michael Biehn, who traveled back in time in the original to impregnate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and father the world’s future savior.

The film picks up with their son (Christian Bale), now in his 30s, fighting desperately to save a decimated civilization against machines that have taken control. It’s unclear if the father and child reunion is only a cyborg motion away in the new film.

The report also says Sam Worthington, who joined the cast a couple of weeks ago, will be playing “an early edition of the Terminator cyborg played in previous films by Arnold Schwarzenegger.”

Principal photography for Terminator 4 is scheduled to get started in May.
