Signs of life in Terminator 5?
Could the long-mooted new Terminator film be flickering back into life?
After months of radio silence with regards the planned new Terminator film, a single Tweet seems to offer a sign that it's emerging from its slumber. At one point, Terminator 5 had both director Justin Lin and star Arnold Schwarzenegger involved and interested. Lin, though, opted to go and make more Fast & Furious sequels, whilst of late, Schwarzenegger has been talking more about a new Conan film (and possibly a Twins sequel) over an imminent return to his most famous franchise.
So is Terminator 5 dead in the water? Apparently not. A Tweet from Annapurna Pictures, the company that holds the rights to the new film, reads simply this:
"The whole thing goes: The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves." -John Connor, Terminator 2 (news is coming)"
It's not much to go on, granted, but it's the first signs of life since reports circulated about Terminator 5 being stuck in limbo a few weeks back. Given that Arnold Schwarzenegger's schedule is likely to be tied up for some time to come, it'd be ambitious to think that Terminator 5 would be before the cameras in the next twelve months. And it may just be that the new film is targeting the summer of 2015 for its release. Which would put it against Justice League, The Avengers 2 and Star Wars Episode 7. No pressure there, then.
That said, chances are that we're making an awful lot out of a single Tweet. But we'll keep you posted...
