Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Terminator 5' Moves Forward With New Writers




The long-gestating fifth installment of the cyborg film franchise has hired Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier to provide the script.

"Terminator 5" is still alive though it's been a long time fans haven't heard any updates on the project. The fifth installment of the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring film franchise has just hired a pair of new writers to provide its script.

Courtesy of Deadline, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures have sealed Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier to pen the upcoming cyborg movie. Laeta previously wrote such films as "Alexander" and "Shutter Island" and executive produced "Avatar". Patrick, meanwhile, worked for "Dracula 2000" and "My Bloody Valentine".

Annapurna reportedly spent over $20 million to acquire the rights to the "Terminator" franchise during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Nonetheless, it is still unclear where exactly the fifth movie would stand and when it would start the production.

Arnie is set to return as the lead of "Terminator 5". The project initially hired director Justin Lin, but he quit in 2011 due to scheduling conflicts. At the time, he reportedly chose to work on "Fast and Furious 6" instead of the next "Terminator" flick.

As for now, Arnie is busy promoting his upcoming film "The Last Stand" which opens Stateside on Friday, January 18. He will also be seen reuniting with Sylvester Stallone in "The Tomb (2013)", which will open nationwide on September 27.
