It seems that Christian Bale is securely locked in to yet another franchise. According to BBC, it was revealed at the Cannes Film Festival that Bale has signed on for all three of the new Terminator films, starting with Terminator 4, which is filming now.

"Christian was our first choice and he's a big fan of The Terminator, so we're very lucky," said Victor Kubicek from Halcyon at the Cannes Film Festival. "But with Batman he's already done the whole franchise thing, so we weren't sure he'd respond."

"He read the script and he loved it, so he's signed on for all three," said Kubicek's business partner, Derek Anderson.

Common and Sam Worthington are also starring in the film, which is currently shooting. The film is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2009.
