Arnold is on board for Terminator 5 and possibly 6

Megan Ellison, the super-producer behind Annapurna Pictures, has finally closed the deal with PacificCorp to gain the rights to THE TERMINATOR franchise. While director Justin Lin is no longer on board as director, Ellison does have Arnold Schwarzenegger committed to appear in the film.

The Ellisons own the rights to THE TERMINATOR until 2019 when they revert to James Cameron. The pair are hoping to squeeze out both TERMINATOR 5 and 6 before that time. Seeing as the Ellisons are being viewed as saviors by many Hollywood directors for their willingness to put their money out for projects that would otherwise be passed over by the studios, this news is pretty positive. Their first correct step was getting Arnold on board. If they can get him to be in the movie, I am sure he found their pitch to be worthwhile.

I hope they learn some lessons about how not to do a movie after the failure of Terminator Salvation. It will probably be best if Arnold plays the human that that Skynet based the Terminator on. I just don't see him playing a killer cyborg anymore.

^ You mean Sergeant Candy?

As for this film: Meh. What could T5 and T6 possibly cover that the existing films haven't?

There's not gonna be yet more time travel, is there? If this keeps up, I am sticking to my hope that the timelines featuring Skynet, whose entire existence depends on time travel, will collapse in on themselves and the only possible outcome will be a Future Coda-like timeline in which Skynet never existed.

The terminator model was based on two people according to III.

I'm glad Arnold is doing movies again, and returning to properties like Terminator and Conan. Hope he can squeeze all of these projects out while he still can.

Pass. Terminator was a classic. T2 was great. But... there's very little left in the story that I'm interested in.

Arnie was on-board for three. That was a shit fest.

I'll wait until JAMES CAMERON is back on board. Everything else is meaningless.

One of the best edits made ever. Not canon thankfully.

The thought is to get to full circle. Get to that point where Kyle gets sent back and the struggles by the Resistance that get's Connor and his team to that point.

I can see it now:

Arnie Terminator: John Conner, I have come back in time to protect your dog. If the T-1Billion is able to kill it, you will grow into a deep depression and not become leader of the resistance.

The tagline will be "Come with me if you want to bark."

There's really only one area left to cover. We know how things started; we know how the future war ends; but what happens after SkyNet is defeated? Surely there's more to it than sending back Hail Mary terminators.

These films literally exist to prevent that from happening. No new Terminator movies by 2019 and Cameron gets the property. So they need to move quickly and get working on that property.

You want a movie that takes place after the Big Bad is defeated? That's kinda like a movie taking place after Return of the King, isn't it?

wouldn't the movie basically be watching humans rebuild? that doesn't really scream Terminator movie to me.

I say: reboot. Why not?

Re: Arnold is on board for Terminator 5 and possibly 6

^ Terminator sequels are like Highlander ones: EVERY one is a reboot.

In both cases, there's not a sequel in the lot of them that's completely consistent with what went before.

Terminator sequels get a pass on that, though, since by definition they can't be consistent, due to their constant use of time travel. (The original film was an absolutely closed loop, but all of the sequels ruined that.)

Fine, then I hope they end up shelving everything until the deadline hits. I'll wait.
