    Terminator 5

    When did Universal buy the rights? Anyway...
    Arnold Schwarzenegger Back For 'Terminator 5' With 'Fast Five' Director Justin Lin?

    by Josh Wigler in News


    Arnold Schwarzenegger is back, officially fielding offers for his long-awaited Hollywood return—and when he's finally in front of the camera, it could very well be in a familiar role.

    Deadline reports that with Schwarzenegger back in the game, interest is picking up for a fifth "Terminator" film, particularly from Universal Pictures. The studio is reportedly considering an approach to the franchise that would put "Fast Five" filmmaker Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan behind the driver's seat, though their involvement is far from official at this early stage.

    Still, hard not to get excited about the idea of another "Terminator" movie with Schwarzenegger, Lin and Morgan attached. I know I expressed my skepticism about Arnie returning to his iconic post-apocalyptic cyborg role just last week, but if they can find a way to realistically address the actor's age—perhaps by having him play a human resistance fighter instead of the T-800 model he's played in previous installments—then of course I'm on board. I'd be fooling myself if I said otherwise.

    Plus, Lin and Morgan are an excellent team. Their "Fast & Furious" collaborations have been fantastic thrill rides for action junkies, so throwing that pair onto one of the most successful and revered action franchises of all time? It's a no-brainer, really. And anyone who isn't convinced on Lin based on those films doesn't need to look any further than "Modern Warfare," the infamous paintball episode of "Community" that he directed. Not that the "Terminator" movies should be a joke, but "Salvation" completely lacked the heart and humor that was so prevalent in rounds one and two—I think Lin could bring those essential ingredients back to the table.

    Again, the attachment of Lin, Morgan and Schwarzenegger is far from official. But regardless of their involvement, don't bank on the return of McG, Christian Bale or Sam Worthington—while it's possible that they could remain involved in the series, Deadline notes that their attachment ended with the recent bankruptcy battle that plagued the "Terminator" brand. In other words, their involvement is far from certain, perhaps even unlikely.

    Re: Terminator 5

    I want to see the Salvation storyline wrapped up, along with the TV show that was left dangling.

    It's too bad this franchise got so messed-up with different companies releasing the different movies - kinda like Narnia.

    Re: Terminator 5

    News is that T-5 might just be a reboot, and it's one of the 15 scripts that Schwarzenegger is looking over. Among the collection, a remake of Predator??? To a new comic book adaption.

    To no one's surprise, now that citizen Arnold Schwarzenegger has left the California Governor's chambers, he's ready to re-enter public life. His former public life, that is. Schwarzenegger would need a Constitutional Amendment to run for President. And his previous occupation pays better anyway. Schwarzenegger was one of the first, if not the first, stars to pull down a $20 million salary. And he's told The Arnold Fans that the offers are piling up:

    "Well, first of all it's more 15 films, obvious ones from The Terminator to remakes of Predator and The Running Man and all of those things. Then also a lot of original stuff too. But I am also packaging a Comic Book character right now. I'm going to announce that sometime by the end of March or the beginning of April." -Schwarzenegger

    Re: Terminator 5

    Director of Fast Five, Justin Lin is set to direct and Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming back for the new Terminator!

    Arnold’s back for Terminator 5. Is that a good idea?

    The news Tuesday that Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to the Terminator franchise provides a colorful coda to several story lines.

    The new film, loosely dubbed Terminator 5, is being shopped to studios. There is no script or screenwriter, but a person close to what Hollywood terms a film package, who asked not to be identified because of the early nature of the negotiations, confirmed that Creative Artists Agency has begun shopping the rights to make the movie, though with no plotline as yet. Schwarzenegger, the person said, would play a starring role as the title character in the science-fiction film, not a supporting role in which he passed the baton to a new hero. The movie would be directed by Fast Five director Justin Lin.

    The package represents the latest twist in a tortuous business story. Early last year, Sony and Lionsgate joined forces to bid on the rights held by the Halcyon Co., the bankrupt Terminator Salvation producer. But, in a controversial decision, the rights were handed to the Santa Barbara hedge fund Pacificor, which had backed Halcyon.

    In May, Hollywood agency William Morris Endeavor announced it had been chosen by Pacificor to sell the rights to studios. But no sale materialized, and CAA replaced WME; CAA, which has long represented Schwarzenegger, held an obvious advantage: the clout to convince the actor to come back.

    Tuesday’s news raises nearly as many creative questions as it answers. The offshoot Terminator Salvation, directed by McG, was roughed up by critics but pocketed $371 million worldwide. It was supposed to be the start of a new trilogy starring Sam Worthington. But the return of Arnold, and the fact that McG will not have a place on this film, means that the new Skynet saga could pick up the narrative trail of the third picture, 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, or start in yet another new direction. (Machines finished with Nick Stahl’s John Connor and Claire Danes’ Kate Brewster running from Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, with all three still alive at movie’s end.)

    But perhaps the biggest point the news highlights involves Schwarzenegger’s career direction. The 63-year-old former California governor told the Los Angeles Times recently he’s diving back into acting. “I can step very comfortably into the entertainment world and do an action movie with the same violence that I’ve always done,” he said, predicting he’d be on a set by the end of the year.

    At the time, some speculated he could star in the drug-themed action film The Last Stand or the prison-escape movie The Tomb, both new properties and potential franchises. Those remain possibilities, especially with a script not yet written for Terminator.

    But it’s clear Schwarzenegger also has the past on his mind. He’s already signed on for a cartoon called “The Governator,” featuring his voice and likeness. Now it looks as though he’s intent not only riffing on past glories but reliving them.

    It remains to be seen whether Schwarzenegger could take on the required stunts at his age, and whether a population that didn’t think much of him as a governor wants to vote for him with their dollars at the box office. It would also be nearly 30 years since he first incarnated the Terminator role in the James Cameron original; there are few examples of an actor holding a lead film role for that long.

    Still, the former governor would have precedent in a return to the screen. Both Jesse Ventura and Fred Thompson went back to acting once they said sayonara to their political careers. As Joe Klein said when we wrote last spring about Arnold’s possible return to acting, “When politicians leave office, they almost always try to re-ingratiate themselves with the public they’ve inevitably disappointed. Acting would be a way for Schwarzenegger to restore himself in the eyes of the public.”

    Keep in mind, Fast 5 made over $80 million on opening weekend.

    and this is news too...
    ENTIRE Original Terminator cast returning for sequel?

    Supposedly called "Terminator 2012".
    Latino Review reports that the next installment of "Terminator" which will be supposedly titled "Terminator 2012" will feature the entire original cast. They seem to have much faith in their scooper. The article goes on to reference the in-continuity rebooting of Star Trek as something similar. Speculation is that it will obviously include Linda Hamilton and Beihn. Possibly Edward Furlong.

    Since the last one was so bad I don't necessarily have a problem with this, what do they have to lose. On the other hand if Latino Review's speculation is correct and it could be some kind of in-continuity reboot like "Star Trek", how could this be done with an aged cast? I guess we'll see. I want them to come to their senses and make a "Terminator: Sarah Connnor Chronicles" movie instead, but until then...

    Re: Terminator 5

    T4 was not that bad, it was a fun ride MUCH better than T3.

    I really think the series kinda makes NO sense any more but as long as the action is good then I'll join them for another movie.
