Director Justin Lin has been widely tipped as the frontrunner to bring forth the next Terminator movie. Lin caught up with MTV News about the recent confirmation that he has been selected to direct the fifth Terminator film alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hit the jump for the details.
The unlikely Asian commented:
"Everything has just been between me and Arnold, you know? 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."
The director's direction of the franchise is rumored to ignore the continuity of the past two films, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation.
"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."
If we are talking about another way to explore the character of John Connor its your funeral Lin. Salvation despite the backlash nailed that prequel to the wall and today that is where the direction should be headed but once again we have a studios devoid of integrity and a project apparently devoid of inspiration. I guess they will make a new Terminator 3.
