New ‘Terminator’ Brings on a Little Tim Burton?

It was announced this evening that Tim Burton fav Helena Bonham Carter (pictured inside) could soon be joining the battle between man and cyborg as the Oscar-nominated actress is in talks to board McG’s Terminator Salvation, the fourth installment in the franchise kicked off by James Cameron in 1984. The roles in the new film have been kept under wraps, but insiders described the Bonham Carter role as small but pivotal. Principal photography on the Halcyon-produced movie, which looks at the origins of the battle between humans and Skynet, started last month in New Mexico, with the idea that most exteriors will be shot before a potential SAG strike. Warners is scheduled to release the action film May 22, 2009.
