So, understandably we were pretty pumped to learn that Arnold was going to come back for Terminator 5.
There was also speculation that the entire original cast would be back for it. Kind of a mind blowing idea if you ask us.
But, director Justin Lin decided that he'd rather crush our hopes and dreams rather going the most kickass route possible:
No. I don't know where that came from," Lin said. "Everything has just been between me and Arnold, you know? Just us going out and trying to find the right partners. I have certain elements, but it's never been about, 'Hey, let's bring everybody back!' I just don't process that way.
"To me, thematically, there are certain things that I want to see in a Terminator movie," he commented. "A lot of that does draw back to creating this timeline that is an extension, closer tonally to the first and second movies. But to me, it's not as mathematical as, 'Hey, let's get everybody back together and we'll shoot the movie'."
We aren't saying that, either. Just because everyone would be returning doesn't automatically make it awesome — you and the script would have a lot to do with it! But we guess we understand if you aren't up to the task and would rather play it safe.
At least he's right in thinking that his installment should probably ignore the events in T3 and Salvation… just sayin'!
Do your best with it, Lin! The people demand another great Terminator installment!
