The Hollywood Reporter is confirming what we've heard before- Christian Bale is most likely going to be John Connor in Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins. However, word around town is that John Connor is NOT the main character in the film, as the story focuses on a new character, with Connor taking more of a secondary role.

Pretty interesting that they're casting such a high-profile actor in such a minor role, isn't it? What could this mean?
