A proposed Terminator 5 has been in development since Terminator Salvation was released in 2009, but has had to suffer through a variety of roadblocks, including bankruptcy by rights-holder Halcyon, then being purchased by hedge fund Pacificor. It looked like the franchise was back on track last year, when Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures purchased the Terminator rights with Arnold Schwarzenegger and director Justin Lin (Fast Five) attached for a fifth installment.
Lin's involvement became questionable last September when he reportedly couldn't make Ellison's aggressive production schedule due to his commitment to Fast Six. Seems that was also around the time that James Cameron, director of the first two Terminator movies, started secretly advising Schwarzenegger on another Terminator movie. At least, that's what Cameron admitted in a recent interview with MTV. MORE >> Posted 04.17.12 by Ryan
