UPDATE: Arnold says he will be doing 2 more “Terminator” films. Read more HERE.
While we knew that director McG had plans to reinvigorate the Terminator franchise with a complete new trilogy, we knew little about where he was planning to take the storyline after “Terminator Salvation”. Fans were told that the ending of “Salvation” would divide audiences, as McG revealed that it was not your usual resolute Hollywood ending, but one that incites further reflection. T2: Judgment Day actor Robert Patrick was also rumored to return in the 5th film as a scientist whose appearance would be used to model the T-1000.
McG has finally revealed story details concerning Terminator 5, stating that it might follow John Connor traveling back to the year 2011 to “galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion.” The director is quoted as follows:
“They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome.”
There you have it. Does this mean we could be looking at an alternate timeline, considering the events we witnessed in the third film? Or can we simply disregard T3 altogether, as what McG has been considered of doing in the first place? As Terminator 5 is aiming for a 2011 release date, there’s a likely chance of further details being revealed in the coming months ahead (do I hear Comic-Con?).
