Helena Bonham Carter Boards 'Terminator Salvation'

She will play a small but pivotal role in the fourth installment.

Movie Picture
Helena Bonham Carter is in talks to board McG's Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, the fourth installment in the franchise kicked off by James Cameron in 1984. According to The Hollywood Reporter, roles in the new film have been kept under wraps, but insiders described the Bonham Carter role as small but pivotal.

The addition of Bonham Carter -- who in addition to being nominated for an Oscar for 1998's The Wings of the Dove is a five-time Golden Globe nominee -- would bring a prestige element to the summer tentpole.

Principal photography started last month in New Mexico, with the hopes that most exteriors will be shot before a potential SAG strike. Warners is scheduled to release the action film in May.

Terminator Salvation was released May 21st, 2009 and stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Moon Bloodgood, Helena Bonham Carter, Anton Yelchin, Jadagrace, Bryce Dallas Howard, Common. The film is directed by McG.

    I think the movie has a great cast and is so far the only thing I like about it but with the writers of Catwoman and the director of Charlie's Angels 1 and 2 I just don't know yet.

    Be careful. This woman will be a BOND (007) Girl. Big Potential.

    what i meant to say is that most of her roles lately are an exotic type. I like her.

    Christian Bale is just natural, but Helena is just weird...

    As long as they figure out a new title before its released, I'm in. Right now it sounds way too "Direct to DVDish."

  22. CelluloidDreams

    Oddly, her attachment interests me far more than even Christian Bale's. And there, I have to hand it to McG -- every time I think my vague interest in this movie is dead, he finds a way to stir it up again.

    Is she really married to Tim Burton?

  24. CARNAGE

    One of the best female actresses. Her best movies were "Fight Club" and "Sweeny Todd". But since i think Christen Bale is one of the best actors, this movie really will kick ass. GREAT CAST!

    I'm looking forward to this too. Untill it comes out and i'm looking backwards wishing they didn't make it. I'm a pessimist i can't help it.
