With Arnold Schwarzenegger having recently confirmed his involvement in Terminator 5, we’re told the script is now being developed and with one fellow action movie star in mind for the role of T5’s most sinister machine. A source close to Annapurna Films exclusively tells WWE Examiner Friday morning that one version of the script is being produced specifically for The Rock himself.
A source close to the project says one idea being considered for the film could throw fans of the Terminator franchise for a loop. According to the scenario outlined, T5 may be a prequel set in the days of Sarah Connor’s parents, marking the first time terminators have been sent back in time to kill a character that existed before both John and Sarah Connor.
Incredibly, Schwarzenegger may not play the role of a machine in the next film, but a potentially heroic human figure in or close to the Connor family. One theory is that Schwarzenegger’s remarkable ability to protect the Connor family in the 1940s or 1950s with antiquated weaponry by today’s standards ultimately inspired the machines to develop a terminator in his likeness that was eventually sent to 1984 when Sarah Connor was first targeted for termination.
Although this is purely speculation, the source contends, don’t be surprised if T5 is dramatically unlike anything you’ve seen from the film franchise before.
All we know for certain is that if The Rock signs on the dotted line to do battle with Arnold in the 5th and potentially final Terminator film of the Schwarzenegger era, it could very well be the biggest blockbuster of both Schwarzenegger’s and Johnson’s film careers
