McG plays down T4 ending rumour

McG.jpgYesterday, word spread of a potential ending to Terminator 4. I don't want to go into detail about it, for those people who want to be spoiler free. But most of the internet was up in arms at the potential ending to McG's Terminator.

Richard for his part was seeing the good in it, and you can read his post here, beware potential spoilers, or not as the case may be. Now McG has posted again on the Terminator blog, and he seemed to suggest we shouldn't be throwing our arms up in the air just yet.

On the Terminator production blog, McG talks about how things are going, and also tells us a little about the Terminator world he is creating. He also took a moment to dispell any rumour we read about the ending for Terminator 4. Short and sweet, all he had to say was:

By the way, there are only three people who know the ending.

Well as long as the rumour didn't come from one of those three, can we take it as false? Is is a good thing if it isn't true? Elsewhere in the post, he confirmed that the film takes place several years after Judgement Day, but long before 2029. He also confirmed that the Terminator in question will be a T-600, meaning a somewhat clunkier version than we've seen before. The interesting part is where he describes the kind of machine world he'll be creating:

In this film, there are Hydrobots that patrol the water, Transports that move human prisoners around, Harvesters that collect human beings as lab rats for Skynet and Aerostats that survey all that is going on with the resistance the world over.

All sounds good. And apparently we should also not be concerned with the PG-13 rating:

...don't get too uptight about the prospect of the film being PG-13. We have entertained the idea of a PG-13 rating largely because Batman Begins, in my opinion, was made compromise-free. So we'll see. The movie comes first and it will be protected at all times…

Anyone else out there agree that Batman Begins was "compromise free"? I'd still prefer a more adult rated Terminator, and it sounds like it hasn't definitely been ruled out.

This film has me switching from excited, to scratching my head. The many plot changes, the PG-13 rating and now the rumoured ending that isn't true. But then some of the stuff he talks about sounds great. The old school Terminator, the machines he talked about above and then the calming words on the PG-13 rating. Anyone else not sure what to make of it all?



I like what McG has said, it sounds like we are going to see a lot more of the little we saw before in the previous three films. I'm glad that the film is getting publicity, whether good or bad as it creates interest, and I for one am interested to see how this film pans out.

Thanks for the post Louise.
