I’m guessing by the numbers everyone went to see The Dark Knight and I’m going to guess again and say that everyone enjoyed it. Well the chances are you wouldn’t have enjoyed it if Christoper Nolan and his brother Jonathan didn’t slave away at the script day in and day out. Without a good script it is rare that you have a good movie, so I am delighted to inform you that Jonathan Nolan has been confirmed as the ‘lead writer’ on Terminator Salvation.
According to McG, Nolan was “the lead writer of the film,” and “I don’t know how the WGA rules work but honest to goodness, we did the heaviest lifting with Jonah.”
Jonathan Nolan said he had been working on the script a while back but nobody knew how big his involvement was. Thankfully he has had a large input so the chances of Terminator Salvation sucking drops significantly.
More good news. FirstShowing were at Comic Con and director McG revealed some rather interesting info about the film.
The biggest news of the day was that McG apparently convinced the Warner Brothers execs to let them shoot it how they want and thus it could end up being rated R in the end! Additionally, McG hinted that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-101 model Terminator might make an appearance. I must say, this movie is really starting to look great.
Although this is exciting, Terminator also has the big merchandising deal to go through with and kids may not buy the goods it if they can’t see the film!
And finally, when will we get our next look at John Connor and friends?
McG also announced that a Salvation trailer would be attached to this fall’s Quantum of Solace, so you can catch some more footage then and decide for yourselves what to think.
