Terminator 5 ( Genisys ) goes ahead – inside story

Published On December 11, 2013 » 2849 Views» By Darren Dimmick » Movies




If you were around in the 80’s and early 90’s there is no doubt that you would have seen the orignal Terminator movies.  Of course there was terminator salvation more recently in 2009, but in my eyes not a true Terminator movie for start Arnie was not in it, secondly James Cameron did not direct it, which meant it lost it way.

But good news Terminator 5 directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is due to be in cinema’s in July 2015.  So what in store for the film and can Arnie really play a 66-year-old robot?


The film will be titled Terminator: Genesis, and will not follow on from Terminator Salvation 2009 film (sigh of relief).   In an interview with Examiner the Terminator: Genesis writers said,

Incredibly, Arnold Schwarzenegger may not play the role of a machine in the next film, but a potentially heroic human figure in or close to the Connor family. One theory is that Schwarzenegger’s remarkable ability to protect the Connor family in the 1940s or 1950s with antiquated weaponry by today’s standards ultimately inspired the machines to develop a terminator in his likeness .”

While some may feel let down by not seeing Arnie as a machine again, I’m sure with James in the director chair he will come good on what ever is finally delivered.

There has also been rumours that Tom Hardy will be playing John Connor in my eyes this would be perfect casting. Jump Street 21 actress Brie Larson has also been said to have been cast as Sarah Connor, although unless there are two different time frames within the film, trying to figure out how this will work when Brie 24 year old, will be playing the mother of Tom who is currently 36.  In other casting rumours the villain Machine will be played by Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson and as he seems to be playing all the sorts of characters that Arnie did back in the 90’s, could be perfectly suited for him.

As soon as we have any more news on Terminator 5 (Genesis) we will keep you informed.
