Good grief, I’m still trying to find time to polish off some thoughts about the first season of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and now, only a few days after I posted all those photos of all the actors who have played Kyle Reese to date, the Hollywood Reporter tells us this — oh, and trust me, you probably do not want to read the original story, which seems to give away a major spoiler.
Here is what I can pass on, though:
Anton Yelchin is in negotiations to star as post-apocalyptic warrior Kyle Reese in director McG’s “Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins.”
With production scheduled to start in early May, Paul Haggis also has been in talks about coming on board to work on the sequel’s script.
Yelchin will play a teen version of Reese, the man who fathered world savior John Connor in the original “Terminator” film. . . .
Yelchin, of course, is the actor who was recently hired to play the young Pavel Chekov in J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek movie.
