Terminator 5 finally showed new signs of life last week, with reports that a pair of screenwriters have been recruited by Oscar-nominated Zero Dark Thirty producer Megan Ellison.

Also, the T-800 himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, promises he’ll be appearing in the fifth Terminator installment, even amidst recent speculation about whether or not that remains the plan (not to mention, if that’s indeed a good idea).

Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) are currently putting together a Terminator 5 script for Ellison, nearly two years after the budding Hollywood power player purchased the Terminator franchise rights. Some of you have probably speculated that the plan is for T5 to return the series to its roots, by resurrecting the format of James Cameron’s original movie – which combines slasher/horror scenes with sci-fi pop action – and moving away from the mythos building that culminated in Terminator Salvation »
