Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back as The Terminator with Fast Five's Justin Lin directing

Apr. 26, 2011by: Niki Stephens

The Terminator is back!

Deadline is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star in a rights package that is shopping today that will revive THE TERMINATOR franchise. There is currently no screenwriter but Justin Lin (FAST FIVE) has been tapped to direct. Robert Cort (JUMANJI) will produce.

There's been whispers of another TERMINATOR film, but the future for the franchise was unsure when it went to bankruptcy auction. Several people thought that James Cameron would sweep up the rights, but the director decided to pass. Instead, Pacificor bid $29.5 million, with the promise that additional multimillion-dollar payments for each film would go to Halcyon, the company that made McG's TERMINATOR SALVATION. Pacificor beat a combined bid made by Lionsgate and Sony who planned to make back-to-back sequels that would bring the franchise to a "natural creative conclusion".

Universal, Sony, and Lionsgate are very interested in buying the rights package for the new TERMINATOR revival. However, there is a time frame set to buy the rights. Deadline explains, "There is a stipulation in copyright law that if you assign your rights, you get them back in 25 years. In this case, Cameron assigned his rights to Hemdale, and the North American rights will revert back to him in 2018. Now, Cameron has more or less washed his hands of the Terminator franchise, but I'm told a new deal would have to be made with him if the plan was to keep making Terminator installments beyond that period. There is plenty of time to make at least two Terminator films before that happens, and that might be sufficient to end the saga that so far has spanned four films. Any financier that makes those films owns them free and clear." Apparently the price tag on the project is $25 million.

Extra Tidbit: Do you welcome Arnie back as The Terminator sans James Cameron?

Actually on second thoughts ok if you're gonna bring arnie back lets have robert patrick as well....i mean a good disguise for a terminator would be to look a bit more dated and older

As long as the SFX team can make Arnold look younger (like Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy), then I'm sold on this movie.

Its a start but the real solution is to get away from the conners and focus on some brand new characters. Salvation tried that but it eventually tied too much back to the conners. If they want to do this right they need to go in a new direction that focuses on some of the other people that skynet was going after. Surely the conners cant be the only people that skynet wanted to eliminate. Then there is the awesome crossover opportunities explored in the dark horse comics. Terminator vs predator

because a new Terminator film with Arnie would be awesome. Provided we get a good script and Justin Lin is up to the challenge. I really enjoyed T3. It was cool to see Arnie come back, and Nick Stahl did a good job as John Connor.

While I am initially excited about this, I'm hoping that they continue the storyline that began in Salvation. I actually enjoyed it so I'd like to see some continuity in one of my favorite franchises.

From James Cameron to Justin Lin (Sigh)

The only way i'd like to see this done is a Black Hawk Down-esque war movie set in the future with A rebellion led by John Connor against a shit load of Arnie T-800s. Of course they'd need to be played by Roland Kickinger with a digital Arnold face but that's fine. Please don't cast Arnold as a soldier/doctor or something who is the model for the terminators like that Sgt Candy bullshit either.

I'm actually really surprised he's coming back. i thought for sure there was no way he would. i kept saying it when salvation came out. it just didn't feel like a terminator film without arnie.

This is going to get made and thrown into theaters whether we like it or not. So if they HAVE to do it, here are my suggestions:

Make a legit sequel to Terminator Salvation. Bring back Christian Bale as Connor. He's older now, and bitter - his wife was killed in a raid by the machines. A single father, and now the top leader of the resistance, Connor is at the end of his rope - the war shows no signs of ending.

Just as all hope is nearly lost, he finds a lone human survivor, hidden away

Just as all hope is nearly lost, he finds a lone human survivor, hidden away in a bunker deep underground: an old man, dirty and unshaven with tattered clothes. Connor has the man cleaned and meets with him. To Connors shock, he discovers that this old man is an Austrian scientist who designed the T-800 concept many years ago: Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Connor uses the old scientists vast knowledge of time travel to send a young Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor. Movie ends with Reeses fated departure and the old scientist coming to terms with his role in the robot apocalypse and his death.

you know, itd be pretty cool if Arnold played this old rebel veteran leader who takes a young john conner under his wing and teaches him how to be a soldier/leader. sarah taught him how to survive, arnold teaches him how to lead. then by the end of the movie, the terminators catch arnold (maybe he sacrifices himself to save john) and they use arnold as the model for their new t-800's to spit in the face of the humans. of course you'd have to ignore everything that happened in T4.

I can understand why people want him back but he is just getting a bit toooooo old now. Get some CGI ones running around and maybe him as a human although surely they must be getting to the poin tin the franchise where he gets sent back to kill Sarah Connor. Are we going to get a movie scenario where it ends up coming back on itself, like a snake eating it own tail?

Arnie can still do action movies, but he just can't play a Terminator convincingly at his age. Besides, this will be PG-13 like that last piece of crap. Justin Lin started off with so much promise in Better Luck Tomorrow. But like John Singleton, he cashed in for the bucks.

Arnold is younger than Stallone so of course he can do it.. Just keep his shirt on.. Im more worried about Justin Lin directing, he doesnt fill me with confidence. Get the TSCC writing team to write it.

Sylvester in The Expendables, just saying, they are the same age. Obviously they have a plan on making it work.

CGI can be used where needed as in the previous film. Or as for Jeff Bridges in Tron.

Another possibility is that they do it the "Avatar"/"Gollum" way.

I guess it all depends on how it will all go down. Arnold can't be THE Terminator anymore (he can, but let's be realistic here).

As for the tidbit, I don't give a sh!!!t about Cameron. He lost me after True Lies.

this wouldn't be beating a dead horse, this would be a skinny asian kid beating a dead horse after everyone else already beat it, so it's all like, soft and ripe and mushy... then the kid realizes that the horse isn't just dead, it's been stuffed and has been hanging out in the free bin at the local antique shop for, like, a year. then old people stare, point and laugh at him for not even being man enough to beat a real dead horse properly.

Good to have Arnold back, but man, he is a bit old to play a killing machine. What? Skynet needs a 60+yo to travel back in time and kill Sarah's grandmother so she won't give birth to Sarah, thus John is never born?
Did I just write Terminator 5???
Oh, and no Cameron? Don't even bother. Rise and Salvation both paled in comparision to 1 and 2. You all know the reason.
And JoBlo, update your servers or something FFS, waiting 3 minutes for comments to load just makes me wanna head over to

Arnold is WAYYY too old to play The Terminator. If this does happen with him i will probably still see it but they fucked over the franchise enough. The ONLY way it could work is with James Camron.

This is excellent news. I hope they continue from the Salvation storyline. I really get sick of the "age" comments after a while. Every time a new movie is announced with a veteran actor, there's always bitching about their age.

This sounds cool at first.. and memories of T2 come flooding into my mind.. and then I get all pumped up on the nostalgia factor of it.

.. and then I remember Indy IV, and Live Free or Die Hard, and Clerks II... and Terminator 3... and then I remember a tan Arnold in T3 (seriously, a tan fucking cyborg?) complete with aging, wrinkly skin and makeup.. and then I realize he's that much older.

I want Arnold back.. but I'm not sure T5 is where I want to see him.

Also Bring back Michael Biehn to play his original role of Kyle Reese!!

If they Bring back Arnold & Michael Beihn then they can complete the story full circle and put it to bed the right way.. They could use that flesh CGI that they used in the flashback scenes from X-Men 3 that made both Ian Mckellen & Patrick Stewart look 20 years younger.. Those two actors are way older then Arnold & Michael Beihn and that CGI made them look great.. CGI & Makeup can do wonders with todays technology..

And I havent seen fast five, but you're taking a director from a not so great franchise and introducing him to a stellar franchise that has seen better days...doesnt seam like the right way to go.

Fast five's reviews have been surprisingly impressive so far (81% based on 36 reviews). It probably won't fall below the 60% "fresh" rating. That said, this is only one good movie out of the 3 fast and furious films he made.

I'm of the few that LOVED T4. From the opening credits consistency to Kyle Reese learning to make the gun sling, Hamilton and Arnie's "cameos," etc., I ate up every bit of it. I hope to god they will continue the T4 storyline and bring back Bale, Worthington and Yelchin along with Arnold to really make a true T5. This story can't end until Reese gets to the time portal, maybe in T6, which could end it properly. Get Biehn involved too!

I actually enjoyed SALVATION enough for what it was...

and wouldn't mind seeing the rest of the proposed trilogy that was planned. However this will probably be a "reboot" and have nothing to do with it, and I don't think Christian Bale will be coming back either. Just let it go already, and I'm sure we'll be seeing a remake/reimagining of THE TERMINATOR eventually anyway. Platinum Dunes is probably salavating at the idea already.

Seriously though, this is great news. I like all of the Terminator films (Salvation was good), and I hope to get a satisfying conclusion. The story has come too far not to continue.

I would love to see a satisfying, conclusive end to the terminator franchise. Arnold and Cameron don't need to be involved, but we really need a solid script and director (something Salvation lacked). I don't think Bale needs to be involved as well, set it far enough in the future for an older actor to take the role, and make the future look like it did in first 2 films. I do think there is a good story to tell here, the battles between men and the machines, the element of time travle, etc, and

Misleading

I read about this on another site and it said that Lin wasn't on board yet, but they were thinking about it.

I think Lin is a wonderful director. The directing isn't the problem with the f@f movies, not at all. The man can direct action so I don't have an issue with that.

I like Bleakseason's idea, actually, that would fix the aging issue (robots don't age) and they can bring in someone younger to play a super advanced terminator.

I'd rather it continue after Salvation, even though I

I'd rather it continue after Salvation, even though I fucking HATED that movie. I don't want a reboot, there's nothing wrong with the others, really. You win some, you lose some. Stop rebooting and just make the next couple ones AWESOME.

I kinda prefer Arnie do an original action pic a la Commando..
However.
I love the Terminator series and all its shades, thus: "I'm hip to this news" :D

Maybe if Arnie plays second banana to Bale/Connor, as the ageing soldier who was the original basis for the T-100 design. Now he's old and drunk and ends up working with Connor to redeem himself or something. They could rock the Kickinger (sp) with Arnie face Terminator when needed.

Not sure about Lin though... sounds shifty to me.

From the director of "Fast Five"? Uhhh...guys?

Also, am I the only one who thinks the "Terminator" series has kind of run its course? Don't get me wrong, the first two are classics, but how much farther can they take this series?

81%, based on 36 reviews, on Rotten Tomatoes.

I'm not a Fast & Furious fan, but at the very least he deserves credit for making one good film in the series (potentially the only "fresh" rated movie in the franchise.)

I'm not defending the guy, but maybe you should bring up the other Fast & Furious films he directed (3 and 4), or Annapolis, or Finishing the Game. Fast Five looks to be a decent film.

Let's be honest. Only the first one was any good. Even though T2 had Cameron at the helm, it nonetheless was a more preachy retread of T1.

What about that treatment Goldman wrote?

I'm hype on Arnie returning, but only with the right crew. William Goldman (co-writer of T2) put together a treatment for T5 and T6 right after "Salvation" underperformed at the box office. His treatment brought Arnold back and continued with Bale as John Connor.

I would like to see that. I'd like to see James Cameron take back the director's seat, use some of that "Avatar" magic to perhaps de-age Arnie a little bit or something. I feel like it could be done convincingly with him at the

Justin Lin sucks. Stay away from my Terminator.

Will they or won't they continue after Salvation? I'm sure Arnie is up for The Terminator role and hopefully he won't be too tired from shooting action scenes. You know what's going to make this news better? A cameo role from Robert Patrick!

I look at it as 2 different Terminator franchises. For me the real Terminator series and story ended with number 2. 3 onwards is just a "lets see what could've happened" series.

I'm up for this but MAKE A DECENT STORY!! Salvation had so much potential but they made an absolute mess of it

No Cameron...

No TERMINATOR.

Simple as that, to me it doesn't exist without him.

For me, if even one of the installments in a series of movies is bad it spoils the whole thing.

And McG's Terminator was atrocious. God, I feel gay even typing that nickname.

I just can't see how this will be good.
