Little is known about the upcoming Terminator 5 except that the film is happening. Now, a report form the WWE Examiner (via AICN) has some very possibly juicy details on the cast and its setting. They say that actor Dwayne Johnson is being courted to join the film but hasn't officially signed on. Production for the film is targeting a January start date, and with Johnson currently filmingHercules in Hungary, his schedule could line up properly to appear in the film.
The next chunk they have on the film is on the setting for the story. According to Examiner sources, the setting for Terminator 5 will be set before the birth of Sarah Connor and focus on her parents in the 1940s and 50s. This scenario would once again involve a Terminator(s) being sent back in time to kill a target, only this time it's decades before the attempts on Sarah and John Connor. None of this is confirmed at this time, but check back here for more information on the film in the future.
Writers Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are teaming up to write the script for the next installment. Lussier directed Drive Angry and My Bloody Valentine 3D while Kalogridis penned Shutter Island and did some script work on James Cameron's Avatar.
