Warner Bros. Pictures has apparently dropped the previous coined title, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins for the next film in the Terminator franchise.

The film, directed by McG, will reinvent the cyborg saga with a storyline to be told over a three-movie span. The film is set in the future, in a full-scale war between Skynet and humankind. So far, Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) and Sam Worthington (Avatar) have been cast in the film.
