Working with this group in bringing this project to Albuquerque has been a great pleasure. This is an exciting time for Albuquerque Studios. To have the opportunity to host a production, cast and crew of this magnitude does not come along often and it speaks to the quality of the studio and the great film incentive programs put in place by the state of New Mexico.

''Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins,'' the fourth installment of the ''Terminator'' franchise, will begin filming in early spring at the Albuquerque Studios. The film recently began loading into the facility and will occupy the entire lot until the fall of 2008.

The film is scheduled for a North American theatrical release May 22, 2009. Warner Bros. Pictures is handling all U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for the film, with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group (SPWAG) handling international distribution rights in all     territories (excluding Korea and select Mideast territories). The Halcyon Company acquired all ''Terminator'' franchise rights in May 2007.

''Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins'' will be the first film in a new ''Terminator'' trilogy and will mark the latest installment of the multi-billion dollar ''Terminator'' franchise. Moritz Borman, Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek will produce. McG will direct the film from a script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris (''Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines''). Christian Bale will star as John Connor.    

On ''Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins'' coming to Albuquerque Studios, COO Nick Smerigan said, "When building this facility, this is exactly the type of project we envisioned having and we look forward to working with Derek and Victor of The Halcyon Company and McG and the entire cast and crew." Added Jeremy Hariton, the studios' Sr. VP, "Working with this group in bringing this project to Albuquerque has been a great pleasure. This is an exciting time for Albuquerque Studios. To have the opportunity to host a production, cast and crew of this magnitude does not come along often and it speaks to the quality of the studio and the great film incentive programs put in place by the state of New Mexico."

On the latest project coming to Albuquerque Studios Mayor Martin Chavez said, "This is possibly the biggest production of 2008 and the city of Albuquerque warmly welcomes everyone from the production, not only to our city, but to our world class Albuquerque Studios."
