Whatever happened to Justin Lin's Terminator 5 movie? A couple years ago, the Fast Five director was signed up to take over the Terminator franchise. And hopefully wash the taste of Terminator Salvation out of our mouths.
Sadly, the film never got off the ground — and now unnamed sources are saying one huge problem is that the script never quite came together. These sources also give us our first hints about the plot of T5 — and you can see why this turkey never got the chance to fly. The whole thing was based around resurrecting Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor in an alternate dimension. Oof.
According to inside sources close to the production over at Movie Hole the premise for T5 (which included Arnold Schwarzenegger's involvement) was to send the T1 back in time to an alternate dimension where Kyle and Sarah lived on. This also meant you could keep the original cast of Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn if it was set in the characters' futures. Unsurprisingly the script never got locked down, and eventually Lin had to get back to work. So he left the project and returned to making Vin Diesel And A Fast Car films over at Universal.
