“Terminator 5” plot details and The Rock’s involvement?

June 21, 2013

According to Examiner, Paramount Pictures’ newly acquired Terminator franchise is taking a big chance to kick off a new franchise. How do they plan to achieve this?

The site reports that 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,” adds the site.

So who would replace Schwarzenegger as the Terminator? Word is that it’ll be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The film is being produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures as well as David Ellison’s Skydance Productions. Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are writing the script for the fifth film.
