Terminator 5 to Take Place in the Present?


Director McG recently spoke to filmjournal.com and briefly touched upon what he had in mind for Terminator 5.  It seems unconventional, but I think it could work.  I think.  From the article:

“I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011,” McG reveals. “John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion. They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome. I also think he’s going to meet a scientist that’s going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.”

At least it’s original.  Also, you can’t have three movies in a row about the war against Skynet in the future and not add some time travel.  I’m not going to flip out and say that McG sucks; I don’t think it’s fair to do that until after seeing Terminator: Salvation.  The guy really seems to “get” the Terminator mythology and is incredibly anxious to please fans and James Cameron, too.  And before you start getting all riled up about what he may or may not do with John Connor, they did some pretty out-there sh*t with Connor on The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and that was one of the best-written shows on television.  It’s just too bad that nobody watched it.  You can read the entire article HERE.
