Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins is quickly moving into production over at Warner Brothers. According to Variety, the film will begin shooting in early 2008 with a revised storyline that could expand into two more feature films.

This new version of the old franchise will be similar in scale to Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, and will have an event sized budget. At the same time, Warner Brothers is also producing a small screen adaptation of The Terminator entitled The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which will air on Fox during its midseason run early next year.

John Brancato and Michael Ferris have completed a final draft of the screenplay, and the studio is currently looking for a director to helm the project. At this time, McG is likely to step behind the camera for the first entry in this proposed trilogy, but no deal has been signed at this date and time.

As for Arnold Schwarzenegger's participation in the film, executive producer Moritz Borman stated, "We've left it open for him to maybe do a cameo. He has an important job, as we know, and the final decision will be based on his desire and availability, along with what the director wants."

Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins will be released in the summer of 2009.
