Well now. This sucks. A bit of bad news for those of you out there like us who were really looking forward to seeing just what Fast Five director Justin Lin could bring to the flailing Terminator franchise … the director has had to bail on the project.

According to Deadline things are starting to move on The Terminator franchise, but a plan by rights owner Megan Ellison and Arnold Schwarzenegger to put the first of two pictures in production for fourth quarter of 2012 has forced director Justin Lin to drop out.

Borrowing the film’s signature phrase “I’ll be back,” Lin has left the door open to a return if Ellison and Schwarzenegger will wait until he completes the sixth installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.

Stay tuned.

    I hope the next bit of news is something to the tune of: “You know what? Maybe we should just let this franchise die.”
