Clearly the evil machine hive brain at Skynet is going through a financial, technological and production crisis if, for this 5th outing, it has to deal out the T-800 or Arnold Schwarzenegger model. But that’s exactly what’s happening as the 5th movie moves ahead with production due to commence in January 2014. The star commented (via ArnoldFans):
In fact, I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator, which we start shooting in January and I’m also going to do King Conan – to play that role and also to do another Twins movie. So I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I’m looking forward to doing those films.
We know that Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to distribute the new film (not confirmed yet) and that 2 writers Patrick Lussier & Laeta Kalogridis are working on the script as we speak.
