"Terminator 5" Hires "Shutter Island" Writer

Posted: January 18th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Terminator 5" Hires "Shutter Island" WriterSubmit Comment
Back when the rights to the "Terminator" franchise went on sale, Megan Ellison (Zero Dark Thirty, The Master), the daughter of Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, put up the money to acquire the film series. Then came word that her brother, David (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), joined her in the quest to bring "Terminator 5" to the big screen.

Deadline is now reporting that Megan and David have hired Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Alexander) and Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine) to write the script for the fifth installment. The story will be an original sci-fi adventure based on an idea initiated by David's production company.

The plan has been to bring Arnold Schwarzenegger back, but the actor recently mocked the franchise, stating that they are working on "Terminator 16." There's no word when production will begin, but Megan and David only have five years to make as many installments as possible before the rights revert back to James Cameron.

I remember the on set joke among cast and crew of Terminator 2 was: "T3 Without Me". God, I wish they had adhered to that motto.

Just what a terminator movie needs....a scriptwriter who put sooooo many people to sleep with his last horrible effort.

Please just hand this off to a capable director and reboot the damned thing so I don't have to watch more parasites deface, debase and displace the original two films.

The franchise has been sodomized twice already. Nobody wants this bitch anymore, let her go.

Kalogridis worked with Cameron on "Avatar". Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing...

"Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing..."

Neither. People are bitching about the scriptwriter because he did Shutter Island. Well, Lehane's book is about as boring, so blame him. He also helped write Alexander. Again, not his fault. He was the low man on that totem. He also EP'ed on Avatar, so Cameron obviously trusts him to a point, and he's attached to Battle Angel, or so I've read, so again, Cameron trusts him in some regard.

People shouldn't bitch about the writer. Just wait till the sh*tty casting comes in, and they announce Ratner or one of his ilk, for director. Then you'll have a reason to complain. Trust me.

He's also attached to Altered Carbon, which sounds promising.

Ranger- Here is a thought for you.
You talked about traveling back in time and becoming your own father.
Well what if you had a sister in the present that you banged, and b/c of hot incest and knocked her up in the present, then you traveled back and knocked your mom up and and instead of becoming your own father you became the father of your sister. Now how hot is that? What would that make you?

He's a she. Though based on photos, I kinda have some doubts.
