Rumour: Dwayne Johnson To Join ‘Terminator 5’?

Thursday 20th June 2013 by Derek Kraneveldt

This sounds crazy.

Just a week after Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed his involvement with the next instalment of the Terminator franchise, another potential cast member, as well as some extremely intriguing plot details have been revealed.

Keep in mind that everything here is a rumour, but if true, this could be the craziest Terminator yet.

WWE Examiner has reported that the Terminator 5 script is being developed with Dwayne Johnson in mind, and that the actor is currently being courted for a starring role in the film. Johnson’s a cool guy, and he would fit well in almost any action flick, but that’s not even the most interesting takeaway here. The article goes on to state some apparent plot details:

Incredibly, 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 that was eventually sent to 1984 when Sarah Connor was first targeted for termination.

That would make an amazing plot twist, don’t you think? We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this one, as this is one rumour that I’d love to see come to fruition.
