Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirmed for ‘Terminator 5′

Quote:

Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) are currently putting together a Terminator 5 script for Ellison, nearly two years after the budding Hollywood power player purchased the Terminator franchise rights. Some of our readers have speculated that the plan is for T5 to return the series to its roots, by resurrecting the format of James Cameron’s original movie – which combines slasher tropes with sci-fi pop action – and moving away from the mythos building that culminated in Terminator Salvation (similar to how Riddick is taking the Vin Diesel franchise back to its Pitch Black origin, after Chronicles of Riddick). That would explain the hiring of a writing duo like Kalogridis and Lussier, who have complimentary backgrounds in the sci-fi and horror genre. Schwarzenegger – attending a London junket for The Last Stand - confirmed that he’s set to appear in Terminator 5 (via Bleeding Cool). Obviously, the screen icon is no longer convincing as the ageless T-800; though, if the story introduces Arnold as, say, a crusty fighter in the war against Skynet – one who the machines view as a fitting model for their new line of robots – his presence might avoid becoming a burden (or feeling shoehorned in). Not to mention, it could allow overriding (or just ignoring) of events in Salvation, which is something Justin Lin hinted at doing back when he was directing.
Going back to it's roots is great but the man is over 60 years old...

He'd be pushing 70, I don't want to see a 70 year old terminator.

Going back to its roots or pissing on the original? My money is on the latter. Like the man said, I won't get fooled again.

Everyone and his dog gets it that Arnold needs to play a human resistance fighter in this one. I hope the producers get that as well.

"Going back to the roots" is a bad thing in this case. I don't want to see yet another "Terminator travels back in time and needs to be stopped". I want to see the full scale future war that we've seen hinted at in T1 and T2, and how they defeat Skynet, and start the time traveling loop.

But then what would that leave T6? :p

Pretty old news. I already started a topic about Arnold being in the next movie a while back.

Wait - brainstorm. I got it. Humans finally overthrow Skynet and send Reese back in the action-packed opening sequence, only to face a new nightmare: the invasion of, and war against, the xenomorphs. With the remaining machine units (mostly) safely under human control, it's... Terminator vs. Aliens!

Give me your boots, your clothes and your Depends, denture adhesive and hard candies.

They should adapt SM Stirling's novel trilogy, so they can have Arnie play the human special forces guy (later to be resistance fighter) who Skynet based the Terminators on

I got it! Let's combine 2 Arnold movies into one sequel! Terminator Jr.

I just don't want to see more shit like "Rise" and "salvation." I really don't. I don't care if Arnold is rolling around in a wheelchair going "TERMIN-ATE! TERMIN-ATE!" as long as the producers lay prostrate at the altar of Cameronus Magnus and continue what he started.

The final scene in the whole film should be the resistance activating the time machine and sending Kyle back. After that: fade out.
