Terminator Salvation isn’t released yet that Director McG seems working on developing Terminator 5 later on. Film Journal International, a trade publication covering the motion picture industry (I believe it’s a reliable source), met with Director McG to talk about T4. McG must have felt confident because he also dwelt on terminator 5, the movie sequel to Terminator Salvation:
Terminator 5 Plot Revealed?
“I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011. John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion. They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome. I also think he’s going to meet a scientist that’s going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.”
I hope Director McG is not telling BS just to create some buzz because I’d be damn thrilled to watch a Terminator 5 movie based on the premise above!
Director McG seems definitely overhauling the Terminator franchise for the best!
