Now that Arnold Schwarzenegger is no longer the Governator, he’s ready to return to his signature role as the Terminator.
Terminator 5 is a sequel to Terminator: Salvation, which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington as rebel fighters battling the machines in the future. New reports indicate the film may be helmed by Justin Lin, with a script by Chris Morgan. They made the last few Fast and Furious films. So the next Terminator should be terrible. Various reports have come in regarding T5. It could be set in the present, with John Connor coming back in time to fight the machines, or it could still be set in the future, as with the last film. Salvation ended with (spoiler) John Connor getting a heart transplant from the cyborg play by Worthington. Maybe his new heart will make him a super machine fighting warrior….This is a McG film, after all. Salvation, while initially deemed a failure, ended up making a ton internationally, with over $300 million, so it looks like T5 is a go, maybe even a T6. McG has said that the next film will deal with time travel, although he hasn’t given away many details at this time. He did want to go back to the roots of the series, with a man coming back in time and running from a Terminator. It looks like there will be a new kind of Terminator as well, but again, plot details are scarce for the moment. It should be noted that Sam Worthington has said he’d love to come back for a sequel, which, with all the possibilities of time travel, could be possible.

I have doubts about him being able to perform this in a convincing manner. He's going to need to really step it up if he's going to represent the Terminator role properly. Robots aren't supposed to age ya know.

Instead of a sequel, why not remake the original with all the cutting edge CGI that available now??
