Sevigny or Weisz for Terminator 4?

Talk about horrible casting! Right now Rachel Weisz and Chloe Sevigny are duking it out to be cast as the terminatrix in the next installment of 'The Terminator' series.

The Hollywood beauties both tried to impress the producers of the much-anticipated sequel during a Dazed and Confused magazine party at New York nightclub The Box on Sunday (09.09.07).

Weisz, 36, and 32-year-old Sevigny are said to have wasted no time in approaching Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, both big hitters at Halycon Company who own the rights to the movie.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Chloe and Rachel personally inquired to Anderson and Kubicek about the role at the party."

The cast for the film is yet to be named, but it is believed a high profile "hunk" has already been cast as the male lead.

While I respect both ladies as actresses, I sincerely hope the producers have more sense than to put either of them in that film. The previous casting of Kristanna Lokken was pure genius, and she rocked the screen, and I just don't see that with those two.

The plot synopsis reads:

The script, which has been kept under tight wraps, picks up with John Connor in his 30s, leading what's left of the human race against the machines. It is being seen as the start of a new trilogy and an attempt to reinvent the franchise with new cast and plotlines, a la ''Batman Begins'' and ''Casino Royale''.

Original Terminator of the first three installments, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is unlikely to be involved in any capacity for the fourth film outing. Though it is rumored that Edward Furlong (John Connor) will be back.
