I am sorry to inform you then that McG is directing. I expect nothing but **** from that movie.
After reading this I have faith McG can't **** it up.
Christian Bale was McG's first choice to play John Conner, whom he calls "the most credible action star in the world right now." McG offered Bale the part while he was shooting "The Dark Knight," and he initially turned it down. Bale told McG that if he could refine the script to the point where it could be read on stage without any special effects and still be a compelling story, he would agree to star in it.
To that end, McG brought Jonathan Nolan on board to rewrite the script. Nolan is the brother of director Christopher Nolan, and they collaborated on the screenplays for "The Prestige" and "The Dark Knight." Anthony E. Zuiker, the creator of TV's "CSI" franchise, also worked on the script. With the script in place, Bale signed on to play Conner, with the option to do two more "Terminator" movies if this one is successful.
Michael Bay is a brilliant director, not only with 'The Island' to back him up but also with blockbuster movies like 'Armageddon' and 'Pearl Harbor' listed in his resume. But, according to some, he should keep quiet every once in a while, especially as he recently decided to speak about Scarlett Johansson wanted to go topless and he did not allow her to.
In an interview with 'Esquire' Magazine, Bay told the reporter that the curvy actress refused to put on a bra for a certain scene in the action thriller, but he couldn't let her do as she wanted because of the rating the movie got from the MPAA.
'Scarlett said, "I'm not wearing this f**king bra. I'm going naked." I said, "Scarlett, you can't go naked, this film is PG 13"', the director told 'Esquire'. He then added that, as Scarlett couldn't see the use of a bra in a scene showing her waking up in the morning, she stormed out the set and locked herself in her trailer. When Bay tried to calm her down, she launched on another 'foul-mouthed tirade'.
'They wanted me to be wearing a bra when I woke up. I asked, "Why don't they just put a sheet over me?" Nobody sleeps in bras - except maybe French women', the actress explained, as part of the same interview.
Anyway, don't despair: those 'Allure' photos I was telling you about last week are only days away from coming out...
