Will Dwayne Johnson be in Terminator 5? Also possible plot details

Jun. 20, 2013by: Niki Stephens

We're not sure what role he is up for but it seems that Dwayne Johnson is being eyed to star in TERMINATOR 5.

According to a source close to WWE Examiner, the reason that Johnson may be missing out on WrestleMania 30 next April has to do with his possible involvement with T5. The source also states that one version of the script is tailored just for Johnson. Which sounds more fun? WrestleMania or taking on Arnold Schwarzenegger in a TERMINATOR flick? Okay, both but one would not want to miss out on TERMINATOR.

The other half of the news mentions that the story may actually be a prequel:

"Incredibly, Schwarzenegger may not play the role of a machine in the next film, but a potentially heroic human figure in or close to the Connor family. One theory is that Schwarzenegger's remarkable ability to protect the Connor family in the 1940s or 1950s with antiquated weaponry by today's standards ultimately inspired the machines to develop a terminator in his likeness that was eventually sent to 1984 when Sarah Connor was first targeted for termination."

So what say you? Does this sound like a good idea? I'm welcome to Johnson getting involved. How cool could that be?

Extra Tidbit: More Guns N Roses on the soundtrack please. And nothing off "Chinese Democracy", thank you. I can't explain GNR in the 40s or 50s but I don't care.

Thats actually a pretty cool idea, going back to the machine's reason why they picked ahnuld's likeness. Finally the rock is slowly beginning to get the right roles...

Rock dont do evil

First, Terminator should be a dark hard R film. Rock doesn't do villains well (yes that includes Fast and Furious and Doom). His money and imagine is with the soccer mom/family crowd he wont jeopardize that by being a cold hearted killing machine. The story i wont judge, but a continuation of the last one would be a start. We still need a good terminator war movie

Again, What?

I just read this twice now, it makes no fucking sense. how come no one has ever mentioned this aspect of survival being part of the Connor Legacy before 1984, remember, she can barely balance her checkbook, she doesn't look like the mother of the future? Now, all of a sudden they have a history of being badass before Kyle Reese came back in time to make her a warrior. This would ruin the whole terminator story, of a man teaching a younger version of his father to be a fighter, and then sending

Cmon, people, cmon.

Personally, I'm getting pretty sick of The Rock popping in every other action-oriented movie. Not because I don't like him, hell, he's a pretty damn good actor considering he used to be a wrestler but enough is enough.
Having said that, him showing up as a, preferably, evil Terminator sounds pretty good to me. Now all they have to do is slap the person who came up with that synopsis.

I think I'd rather see Vin Diesel in a T5 film...He's got an awesome look and voice...Regards to the film taking place in the 40's/50's at least it's different, I'll reserve judgement until I see some footage.

Awwww, f*ck! WrestleMania's my favorite wrestling season (obviously) and one major reason for that for the last three years has been The Rock. I hope he drops this franchise just so that he can be at WM30. He can kick-ass in the movies all he wants throughout the year, but there's only one WrestleMania 30.

completely unexpected

Going back to the 50's instead of the future. I actually love this idea. You don't need The Rock if you have Arnold. Better to pluck a actor out of obscurity and hope he can be what Robert Patrick was for T2, and become one of the most distinguishable villains of our time.

Y'know what's funny?

I remember over ten years ago, when T3 rumours were swirling, The Rock was one of THE names to surface for the film, as he was running hot off the success of Scorpion King and becoming Hollywood's new 'Golden Boy' for action films.

Look I'm a fan of the Rock and think the has come a long way since Scorpion King, but this is just starting to become overkill. First it was Fast and Furious, then GI Joe, now this? If anything the guy needs his OWN franchise. No more latching on to others.

Complete bullshit

Schwarzenegger already confirmed that is not playing a human in the next film. He confirmed that a few weeks ago. That alone should have instantly shot down this story.

I'd love for The Rock to be in T5, but not as a terminator. The thing that makes The Rock appealing in pretty much every film he's in is his personality. And what does a terminator not have? Personality.

I have no problem with that as long as it's an action franchise. He has a unique ability to bring a "fresh" feeling to a series even if it's the fifth entry.

I like the Rock, but not for this franchise. I have a feeling they'd make him a Terminator, and nobody could live up to what Arnold has done in this franchise, it would just seem like a lame copy. In the same way that the T-X in T3 just felt like a rehash of Robert Patrick's T-1000 in T2. And the idea that skynet would build the terminator off of someone from the 1940's is probably the dumbest idea yet.

Agreed, what on earth are they talking about. Why don't they just send back a terminator to the beginning of mankind and kill everyone's ancestors, that is a little less complicated, why don't they just have aliens land with cowboys and the incredibles, cause it doesn't make any fucking sense.

I thought Arnold said himself that he will be playing a terminator. I think the Rock would be a good addition to the film as long as he doesn't up stage Arnold.

Don't like the prequel idea BUT having the rock play the bad guy would be superb. He has huge charisma & physical presence (duh) to shine as the bad guy.
Have his role similar to Arnies in T1 and it could be gold

Knock Knock, its the Rock

Not a knock on the Rock, but why does it seem like almost every good action movie idea...has to pass though The Rock's desk ?

That aside, IF he is in T5, I hope they give him a good role, maybe something like the T2 rivalry .

King Conan!

To be fair, I don't think this plot sounds as bad as some suggestions... But lets face it, this whole film series is a mess now. I wish Arnold could have got a studio to make a King Conan movie first - there's potential to make even a couple of great Conan movies if some real care and effort was put into development. He could get his mate The Rock to be in those instead of T5. He talks about all these different projects, making a 'Triplets' movie, etc. He needs to get that famous

I'm sorry, but

That is, by far, the stupidest synopsis/plot for a Terminator movie I've ever read.

I'd rather vouch for & endorse the use of the storylines used in "X-Men: The Last Stand" & "Batman & Robin" thereby proclaiming them the best comic-book movies ever made...than entertain the thought of ever seeing Terminator 5 if this info is correct & the studio indeed goes ahead w/ it.

Noooooooo!

Funny how Arnold cameoed in The Rundown to "pass the torch" to The Rock, and ten years later, they might make a movie together based off Arnie's biggest franchise.

But seriously, as funny as The Rock is in the Fast and Furious movies, he's impossible to take seriously. He's a hammy actor, plain and simple, and the cheese works for humorous action films, but I want my Terminator to go back to its roots, and be mean n' gritty like the first two. They had moments of humour, but none of the
