Sam Worthington Has an Idea for Terminator 5
03.24.10 by Ryan
Whether the highly polarizing sequel Terminator Salvation will get its own sequel one day is in doubt, even though the Terminator rights rest safely in the hands of hedge fund Pacificor after the company purchased them at auction last month. Still, at least one Salvation star has an idea for a sequel. Sam Worthington told MTV what he'd like to see should a sequel follow the events of Salvation. No surprise, the plans include his character, the unwitting Terminator Marcus, whose fate in Salvation wasn't as life-sustaining as others.
I had an idea that we'd go back in time to when Marcus was first put in jail. They broke Linda Hamilton out of jail in [Terminator 2: Judgment Day], out of the nuthouse. In this one, they'd have to go back in time and break Marcus out of jail. It's the same kind of mirror image.... He would be more fallible, because he's human; he's not metallic. He can get hurt. He still has the gung-ho attitude, but he can get hurt now.
Worthington admitted that he "really liked playing the character a lot" and would definitely like to return for a sequel.
I'd work with Christian Bale in a flash. I'd work with [director] McG as well. If those two were in it and the story were worth telling and there's a way we can bring Marcus back.
There are no plans to script Worthington's idea currently. "Touch wood, they might listen," said the actor.
