Terminator 4 : Rise of the 333 HP Machines

Terminator 4 : Rise of the 333 HP Machines

Captain on deck.

A few weeks ago our friends at What’s Playing reported a rumor suggesting Arnold Schwarzenegger might be involved in the new McG-less “Terminator” movie. Today, Deadline near solidifies that rumor, suggesting that the ex-Governor’s decision to return to acting may have pushed “Terminator 5″ closer to the cameras. Does that mean he’s in it? Of course not, but still… interesting right?

But more so, Deadline reports that Justin Lin, director of the last three “Fast and Furious” movies, may end up directing the film. And if that comes off, anyone want to make bets that Vin Diesel ends up in the film!? (I’m such a fucking fanboy at times)

Anyway, here’s what What’s Playing’s London Insider reported in January :

”With The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, having just left his office in California this past week and co-creator and the wonderfully pleasant producer and of The Terminator Gale Anne Hurd reportedly keen to ‘do another one’ (Terminator movie), there’s all sorts of talk out there regarding what form this fifth Terminator movie may take. While I really doubt Arnold will be back (he’s left the franchise behind), I’ve just heard a great rumour : The third-hand bit of gossip has Schwarzenegger playing multiple characters in a new Terminator movie for Universal (who want the franchise) and a certain director known for helming one of their franchises – he’d play both the human who lent his likeness to the Terminator as well ‘hundreds’ of Terminators. I’ve had the good fortune of meeting Arnold a couple of times, the last time in Cannes with producers Mario Kassar and Andy Vajna when they were all promoting T3. Great times, however, I’d put my money on Arnold becoming Vice President than him being involved in another Terminator movie. ”

Deadline says the next “Terminator” movie – which won’t likely continue the events of “Terminator Salvation” nor will it star Christian Bale and Sam Worthington – may end up at Universal, who are hoping to work with Pacificor, the hedge-fund company that bought the “Terminator” series at an auction last February. If Uni gets the nod, they’ll tap Lin to direct and “Wanted” scribe Chris Morgan to write. Good mix – but there’s potential for a better mix…

Again, none of this suggests that Schwarzenegger will do another “Terminator” movie but it is interesting that the latest installment would start gearing up now that the big guy has left office.
