The Rock Taking on The Terminator?
The Terminator is an ailing franchise in need of some big muscle and firepower to get it back on top where it deserves to be. Now that Paramount had gotten the rights to the series, there's some very interesting talk going around to help propel the property back into the spotlight.
According to the Examiner, Terminator 5 may actually be a prequel of sorts: “Incredibly, Arnold 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."
So if Schwarzenegger is the good guy again this time around, the question beckons... Who will be his ultimate nemesis? A source close to Annapurna Films exclusively told Examiner that one version of the script is being produced specifically for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Wanna talk about the ultimate showdown? This could be it, kids! Please, video gods, make this happen. We'll be in theatres with friggin' bells on!
Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures have already set Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine 3D) to script the next installment of The Terminator franchise.
