All we know about Terminator 5 at this point is that it's going to get made, Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his role as the Terminator, and now it looks like Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson might end up being in the film as well, which seems to make perfect sense. They also reveal some really cool plot details bout the film!
The script is now being developed and with one fellow action movie star in mind for the role of T5's most sinister machine. A source close to Annapurna Films exclusively tells WWE Examiner Friday morning that one version of the script is being produced specifically for The Rock himself.
As for the plot details.... Possible SPOILERS ahead!!
A source close to the project says one idea being considered for the film could throw fans of the Terminator franchise for a loop. According to the scenario outlined, T5 may be a prequel set in the days of Sarah Connor's parents, marking the first time terminators have been sent back in time to kill a character that existed before both John and Sarah Connor.
Incredibly, Schwarzenegger may not play the role of a machine in the next film, but a potentially heroic human figure in or close to the Connor family. One theory is that Schwarzenegger's remarkable ability to protect the Connor family in the 1940s or 1950s with antiquated weaponry by today's standards ultimately inspired the machines to develop a terminator in his likeness that was eventually sent to 1984 when Sarah Connor was first targeted for termination.
That is so freakin' awesome! That sounds like a perfect place to take the franchise, and it will easily deal with Schwartznegger's age issues. I really hope this intel turns out to be true, because I love the concept, and it's a great setting. Their source goes on to speculate that T5 could be "dramatically unlike anything you've seen from the film franchise before."
Sounds good to me! What do you think about these plot details and the fact that Johnson might end up fighting Schwarzenegger?
