Bale goes from Psycho to Cyborg?

EW.Com has posted a scoop: that Christian Bale (BATMAN BEGINS) has been cast in TERMINATOR SALVATION. Unfortunately, there is no official word on what role he will play. We’re hoping he gets to be a terminator. The guy is good at playing homicidal characters, judging from AMERICAN PSYCHO; it would be fun to see him take it up a notch as an unstoppable cyborg assassin.
EW also tells us that the story will be a departue from the films starring Arnold Schwarzengger, but details are being kept secret.
