Original cast returning for Terminator 5 but it's not Arnold's next film

04.29.2011

Two interesting TERMINATOR related news items for your Friday morning...

First, is Latino Review is reporting that the so-called TERMINATOR 5 is actually going under the working title of TERMINATOR 2012 and doesn't just have Arnold Schwarzenegger attached to star - it has the entire original cast attached to return as well. This presumably would mean Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn and maybe even Eddie Furlong. The movie reportedly takes place in present day and that would be all well and good for Hamilton and Furlong but how that accounts for the aging of Biehn and Schwarzenegger, who would have to be coming from the future, remains to be seen.

[UPDATE: The boys at Arrow in the Head reached out to Michael Biehn and asked him about the TERMINATOR 2012 project. For what it's worth, Biehn says "I don't know anything about it." He could be bullshitting us but Biehn's at that point in his career where I don't think he does a whole lot of bullshitting. If the movie is playing out as Latino is suggesting it will, Biehn either hasn't been approached yet or isn't being thought of for the new installment. Stay tuned...]

Now just because there is heat on TERMINATOR 2012, doesn't mean that it's going to be Arnold's first post-Governor project. Far from it, actually. Vulture is reporting that Schwarzenegger has picked his first project and it will instead be CRY MACHO, a more dramatic role directed by Brad Furman (THE LINCOLN LAWYER).

Schwarzenegger was once attached to the film back before his politico days and since Clint Eastwood has flirted with the role but eventually passed. It would star Arnold as an old horse trainer who's fired by his rich boss. The now broke trainer agrees to kidnap the boss's son for some quick cash but soon finds out the parents aren't very eager to get their punk ass kid back.

The project is headed over to Cannes where it will seek buyers and if all goes according to plan, Arnold and Furman could get to filming in early summer.

What would that mean for TERMINATOR? Probably not much. There's a lot that needs to be done to get that project ready, including a studio acquiring the rights and putting some money into development and pre-production, all of which would take place while Schwarzenegger films CRY MACHO.

It would be great to see the original cast return. I mean how cool would it be seeing Schwartzenegger and Biehn on the big screen again in a Terminator film?

Also, if this is true Robert Patrick must come back as well. One of the greatest villians in cinema history.

hmmm...

I am on of the few who are a bit sad that the Salvation-Era will not be continued, but if the original Cast would return for a fifth Terminator I start to become very curious about it. I hope they get a cool story combined with the grim mood of T1. I also like to see Arnie in this Cry Macho movie.

The thing is that Terminator cannot be PG13. The first film being a Horror/thriller is the best imo. The second a dark action/thriller, also good. The third is a action/comedy. The latest pure action. They need to go back to the roots.

I'm kind of over Terminator. The first two films have been the only lights in the franchise and I can't really understand why they continue to try and revive it. As for the horse trainer movie, I'll have to wait and see. Clint Eastwood I could see in the role, but Arnold? I could be surprised, but it sounds a little odd in written word.

Sigh*

They had a chance in Salvation to get away from the Ahnold over the hill association with the Terminator franchise but they fucked that up so now he's actually going to be in another terminator? Christ, get him out of the franchise, he hasn't given anything to it since Judgement Day. Nobody wants to see a Terminator made of wrinkles, tanning cream and bad CGI...It's time to give someone else a shot.

Sounds great but problem for me is I follow continuity way too much and seeing Bale turn back into Furlong wouldnt make sence I mean Furlong still looks like he from Terminator 2 last time I saw him. If Bale refused to come back (Which I guess is possible since I think I read he was disapointed in Salvation then Furlong would work). Beihn well I wanted him back ever since I saw the first one and was so mad when T2 DVD came out they didnt keep that dream scene with him in it. I feel Beihn could

Beihn well I wanted him back ever since I saw the first one and was so mad when T2 DVD came out they didnt keep that dream scene with him in it. I feel Beihn could work in this movie he aged a good amount but hey with some make up he would work he did play a 21 year old in Terminator when he was 28. Hamilton well her character dead I dont see that working unless its flash backs or more voice overs. If Bale does come back Furlong could play in flash backs with Hamilton that would be a good though depending how the story went. As for gold old Arnold he still can be the terminator and if not they never really did explain what likness Terminator was based off so his character could always be a human resistance fighter then later captured and the Skynet decided he would make good likness for a terminator and made younger versions of him and used those to send through time (I dont count the T3 deleted scene as anything).

YES!! I've always wanted to see the entire cast back again! If this pans out this has to be the coolest news I've heard in a long time! I always wondered what it would be like to see grown up Edward Furlong, and Arnie together again. Too bad Cameron is not onboard!

SALVATION takes place in 2018, now there going backwards to 2012? This series has the most F'ed up continuity time line ever. Either do something substantial with it, or put it to bed HOLLYWOOD. All this studio hopping, rebooting is annoying as hell. I wish Cameron would buy back the rights, and either shelve it, or give us a definetive follow up to T2 to end it once and for all by finally showing us how John takes Down SKYNET. The last major story left to be told with the TERMINATOR Mythos.

They better get Linda Hamilton! They could easily say she faked her death if they follow the storyline. Not expecting T2 level of awesome, but they can make it fun to watch.

I dunno...

All this back-and-forth is gonna confuse audiences. I still think they should bring back Bale and do William Goldman's T5/T6 treatment, but I know both Biehn and Hamilton talked shit on Christian Bale after his rant, so I'm not sure that would work out.

Cry Macho sounds like crap

He should definitely do that Kim Ji-Woon film. Unpopular opinion, but I really loved Terminator Salvation. Very misunderstood.

yea I enjoyed Salvation too. It just didn't feel like a Terminator film without Arnie.

I don't know. Does this mean we get another, "here comes the cyborg from the future to kill us, run!" movie.

All I'm really interested in seeing is the future war as depicted in T1 & 2.

Anything else will be crap.

I hope it means the cast of SALVATION is returning to their roles with a much better script and new director.

If done right, this could be excellent. As long as they keep continuity. Maybe it can still be a time travel story while things progress in the post-apocalyptic world, they could sort of switch back and fourth, showing the past and the future. Then everyone could be back--Edward Furlong playing the younger John Connor, Linda Hamilton playing Sarah when she was alive (unless they're planning on just ignoring T3 altogether, which I wouldn't mind personally), then Michael Biehn and Christian Bale

Arnold, of course, could either play The Terminator or the character on which the T-800 was based. There is a time and a place for all of the characters.

I really hope this is BS because it is just a horrible idea. I love the Terminator films, own them all, bit if this is the way they are going, this will be the 1st time I say...PASS! Especially bringing Furlong back. Have they seen what he looks like and what a terrible actor he is now??

Furlong better hit the gym and lay off the drugs if he is gonna do this flick, he looked like shit in Green Hornet. But I always thought the dude had potential.

Terminator 2012? The original cast back? Hope they're not going for a reboot or an alternate reality type of thing. What the hell are they planning to do with the franchise? The only thing I would like to see is T5 picking up right after T2. Ignoring what T3 and T4 have done, and have an older Furlong, his mommy alive and paranoid, and Arnold coming back one final time.

Kyle Reese decided to remain in the future with Sarah Conner and raise their child.

I should write screenplays.

if kyle remained in the future, wouldn't that mean Sarah Conner would have been killed and never fallen in love with Kyle and John never born?

Yeah, but then maybe there'd never be a SkyNet because the Terminator's arm was never lost because he never went back to kill the kid that was made with the sperm of a future man. Any serious examination of the Terminator timeline is pretty much a lost cause.
