Terminator 5 has been rumoured and discussed frequently since Terminator Salvation hit the cinemas in 2009. The rumours added momentum when Arnold Schwarzenegger ended his term as governor and returned to acting full time, but there’s since been nothing concrete. The rights for the franchise recently switched hands when it was reported that Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions finally managed to get a deal sorted. Now with everything in that area settled, the two companies are moving forward creatively by hiring writers Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine) to create a draft. Fast Five director Justin Lin was at one point attached to direct a sequel to the franchise but it looks unclear whether he’ll do so. What seems more clear is that Schwarzenegger will be a part of the project in one way or another.

Personally, I actually liked Terminator Salvation. »
