Helena Bonham Carter may have a full schedule coming with the final two Harry Potter sequels but she will also be finding some time to shoot some scenes for the upcoming Terminator Salvation trilogy. The trade has announced that she will be co-starring alongside Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood, Common and Jadagrace. Director McG is leading the first installment of the new trilogy, based on a screenplay by John Brancato and Michael Ferris.
Her role is reported to be small, but pivotal. Principal photography is already underway in New Mexico with the cast and crew hoping to get a majority of the exterior shots filmed before any potential SAG strike. The trade also passed along a more specific plot concept for the first film.
Plot Concept: Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
