Justin Lin [Fast Five] has been attached to a fifth Terminator movie for the last couple of months. Today the director revealed via Omelete [via Filmonic]that he has asked Arnold Schwarzenegger if he would be interested in returning. Hit the jump for the details.
"I think one of the great things is that when I got started, no one would return my calls, and now I get a lot of phone calls, which is good. I have options. Terminator was one of my favorite films growing up. And I feel I have a take that I would love to see, and I’ve talked with Arnold and we’ve talked and we’ll see. Again, I would love to do it, but it has to be the right circumstances. It has to be the right people. And there’s other projects too. But I’m in a position now that I can choose more than I could a year ago, two years ago. So that is something that is potentially in my future, but when I get home I will sit down and look at my options and choose what I want to do."
Whilst no details have emerged on the storyline of the fifth incarnation in the franchise, it was rumored at one point that Schwarzenegger would in fact play the inventor of the T-800 [Thnx Pat] who modeled the design on his own appearance. Updates as they happen.
