Christian Bale forced writers to re-do ‘Terminator Salvation’ scriptMay 12th, 2009 - 2:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 12 (ANI): Christian Bale was so adamant to play the role of John Connor in ‘Terminator Salvation’ that he forced its writers to re-do its script, to give him a bigger part in the latest instalment in the sci-fi franchise.
Originally, Bale was offered the lead role of Marcus Wright in the upcoming sequel, but the ‘Batman’ star turned down the part, and claimed to only play Connor in the film.
The character, which was featured in all three previous Terminator movies, was only set for a brief appearance in the latest outing.
Thus, the writers were ordered to do up the script once again to give Bale a bigger role.
“A lot of the work was integrating (Connor) into scenes… and having that feel integral and sensible, as opposed to grafted on just because there was a star in the part,” the daily Star quoted ‘Terminator Salvation’ scriptwriter John Brancato as saying.
The new movie hits cinemas on May 21. (ANI)
