Terminator 5 Plot Revealed?

Terminator 5 MovieDirector McG gave an interview (here) to Film Journal International (it's a trade publication and website covering the motion picture industry, so we may consider it a reliable source). An he's been surprisingly talkative about what could be ahead with the movie Terminator 5:

Director McG

"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."
Director McG

Don't really really know yet if he's half-joking or speaking the truth, but such a plot would be awesome! I almost wet my pants at thinking about it! Bring it on McG!

The fourth movie isn't yet out that I'm already excited about Terminator 5! Love Hollywood!

Terminator 5 Movie in 2011

Halcyon is the production company owning the rights for Terminator. Thanks to Halcyon and to Director McG we will soon enjoy Terminator 4.

Thrilled by the positive anticipation of the public, Halcyon executives Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, at the Dubai International Film, have confirmed their intention to develop a fifth installment in the Terminator movie series.

Director McG should then be back for a Terminator 5 movie. Christian Bale will quite certainly reprise his role of John Connor: he not only signed for a trilogy from the very beginning but he also really enjoys the role of Mankind's savior fighting against the machines.

More details about this Terminator Salvation sequel will surface once the fourth opus is released in May.

For now, Terminator 5 seems tentatively scheduled for a release in 2011. I hope they will film both Terminator 5 and Terminator 6 in parallel.

Really happy to hear about this Terminator 5 movie!
