Fans of the Terminator franchise have cause to rejoice as a fifth instalment of the series is in the offing.
Filmmaker Joseph McGinty Nichol, fondly called McG who is helming the fourth movie, Terminator Salvation: The End Begins, has been lined up to direct the fifth movie in the action series, reports contactmusic.com.
McG is eying Terminator 2: Judgment Day star Robert Patrick for the forthcoming project. Patrick shot to fame for his part as evil metal shapeshifter robot T-1000 in the first Terminator sequel.
"I love McG. He's a great guy... we saw each other and he talked to me about it, so we'll see what happens. The sci-fi genre, and specifically that character, is something I'm very proud of. It's what broke me out big to the world," said Patrick.
