This feels perhaps like the least surprising news of 2011, but Deadline Hollywood reports that a former California governor is attached to reprise his most famous movie role.
Justin Lin, who directed the last three installments of the Fast Furious Franchise (and a few installments of “Community”), is attached to direct the fifth “Terminator” movie.
I am very excited to hear Arnold remains interested. He was much missed in the last one.
But for me it all boils down to script. The first two Ts worked because James Cameron knows how to lash together phenomenal screen stories. The last two “Terminators,” both scripted by John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris (“Catwoman,” “Primeval”), failed to fry my burger.
People I’d like to see hired to script “Terminator 5”: Robert Towne. Jason Katims. Quentin Tarantino. James Cameron.
