'Terminator' sequel eyes lead

Moon Bloodgood in final talks for role

Moon Bloodgood is in final negotiations for the female lead in McG's "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins."

Bloodgood will star alongside Christian Bale, Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin in the fourth installment of the sci-fi series, being produced by Halcyon Co. and set for a Warner Bros. release in summer 2009.

Bloodgood will play a no-nonsense and battle-hardened member of the resistance.

Halcyon's Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson are producing with Moritz Borman and Jeff Silver. David Campbell Wilson, John Brancato and Michael Ferris wrote the screenplay. Peter Graves, Dan Lin and Jeanne Allgood are exec producing.

Principal photography is set to begin May 5.

Bloodgood starred in NBC's short-lived series "Journeyman" and is shooting "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li." She also appears in "What Just Happened."

Bloodgood is repped by Paradigm, Caliber Media, and attorneys Dave Feldman and Patrick Knapp.
