justin lin terminator Director Justin Lin Talks About Terminator 5

On the promotional campaign for ‘Fast Five’ – which is raking in a tonne of $£$£$£$’s at the box office – director Justin Lin spoke to MTV about his upcoming plans to direct the fifth instalment in the Terminator franchise that would have Arnold Schwarzenegger return as the Terminator:

“I’ve talked to Arnold and I feel like there’s a take that I’m excited about, a Terminator movie there that I’ve always wanted to see and I still haven’t seen. Everything has just been between me and Arnold, you know?” said Justin Lin in response to rumors that the director is bringing back the original cast, “Just us going out and trying to find the right partners. I have certain elements, but it’s never been about, ‘Hey, let’s bring everybody back!’ I just don’t process that way.”

“I always feel like what’s great about the ‘Terminator’ franchise is that there’s time-travel and there are different timelines to play with,” Lin explains, “There are also a lot of gaps from what we love about all of the ‘Terminator’ movies, so there’s a lot of things we can do and play with… [‘Terminator’] does have that capability, finding fresh ways of going back without destroying other [movies], because you can tell your own stories.”

At this moment in time there is currently no definitive timeframe for the potential fifth film, however Lin does add that in a couple weeks he will have a clearer picture of what his next project will be.
