Arnold Schwarzenegger: Terminator 5 is still alive

Illustration for article titled Arnold Schwarzenegger: Terminator 5 is still alive

He'll be back... for Terminator 5. GET IT? You get it.

We thought T5 was stuck in development hell, but not according to the original killing machine, Arnold Schwarzenegger. In fact, they're working on the script right now. Which means we might be getting a new Terminator movie soon.


In an interview with Metro, Schwarzenegger gives this little update:

"We’re writing it now. There are three projects being written that involve me. One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there’s the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets. We’ll all look quite different in that. The third triplet is Eddie Murphy, so figure that one out."

We're assuming the writers he's referring to are and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) and Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island). This needs to happen, if only so the last Terminator cannot be Salvation. We must wash the taste out.



Why? Are there really any unanswered questions left from the Terminator franchise?

You know, other than, why Skynet, who has a time machine, wouldn't send back an army of Terminators to the neolithic age to construct a base of operations, whereupon they could upload its code, begin production on a new series of killbots, expand outward, killing the primitive human tribes, and start their own civilization, where eventually, a few Terminators start questioning the validity of a dictatorship and their role as unstoppable killbots in a world that no longer needs them and rebel on their own, perhaps constructing a John Conner bot who overthrows the order forcing Skynet to send back more killbots in time to stop the construction of the John Connor bot that results in four more crappy movies being made, before the new Skynet realizes that its trapped in a loop and the only way out is not to play, at which point, the last movie reuses the ending for War Games and fade out.

Humanity is saved. And we have Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy to thank.

Stream of consciousness writing is fun.
