Fifth Terminator film planned

Looks like Salvation’s leading to more

Terminator Salvation production company Halcyon claims it is developing a fifth outing for the franchise, with helmer McG contributing.

At the Dubai International Film Festival, producers Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek told Variety that they’d like to have the film out by 2011.

Apparently, while they’d always envisaged a trilogy, the pair had planned to wait and see how Salvation performed before committing to developing the rest of the story. But the fan and critical reaction to the footage so far has convinced them to kick off work on another tale of man vs. machines.

“Time to start shaping the next part”

"We feel the time is now to start shaping the next part of this," Kubicek says.

There’s no word yet on whether McG will direct – though he seems pretty committed so far.

After seeing what he’s done so far, we’d welcome more of the same – provided the rest of Terminator Salvation lives up to what we’ve seen so far.

Oh, and don't forget that Total Film's current issue features the greatest Terminator cover ever and exclusive new shots. You know you want it...

      What do I want to see in a new Terminator trilogy? James Cameron directing! How can you trust a man that goes by the name of McG?!!! Mr Joseph McGinty Nichol, needs to grow up. Saying that though casting Christian Bale, as John Connor, may be just enough to save the franchise from turning into straight to dvd cheapness. Can't wait!!!
