Terminator 5 to Begin Filming This January?

Chris Savage

The TerminatorWith the news that Paramount Pictures are currently in negotiations to distribute the nest Terminator film in the franchise, some small news has made its way in. While it isn’t much, it definitely gives us something to think about.

Recently the folks over at TheArnoldFans, caught up with the man himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is what he said about Terminator 5;

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.

As a fan of The Terminator, I’m stoked that Schwarzenegger is reprising his role as the Terminator, I’m just holding out that the story can do us fans justice.

Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine 3D) are penning the script. At this time there is still no word in regards to who will direct Terminator 5, but stay tuned.

        My idea for the fifth Terminator is that the year is actually 2029, the year that the whole series led up to. John Connor is leading what’s left of the human resistance, and the war has turned into a holocaust. Skynet has just created a new type of Terminator, the T-2000 (or whatever name you want it to be), which is the strongest cyborg ever created. John Connor decides to reprogram a T-800 and then they lead the resistance into attack on Skynet’s real system core, which is a massive robot made of liquid metal, the T-1000000 (shown in T2 3D). The story will feature Connor, Kyle Reese, the Terminator and some new characters destroying Skynet once and for all. The story ends when John Connor makes the decision not to send Kyle Reese back in time to conceive John in the first place, thus completely breaking the whole time travel cycle and going back to the “there is no fate but what we make” theory. This plot will bring back Arnold, introduce at least 2 or 3 new Terminator robots/cyborgs, will reveal Skynet’s system core, and give the entire series a good final ending. It should focus on the paradox of John not ever being conceived, and whether or not it would affect his life. It would be kind of a mash-up of all four previous Terminator films, and would wrap up the series firmly and ensure no further films would be made.
