Justin Lin is unlikely to direct the proposed project,
Terminator 5. The filmmaker has reportedly preferred
Fast and Furious5 over it.
Reports claim that Justin Lin has temporarily dropped his plans
of making Terminator 5 due to date conflicts. The
filmmaker has to finish the untitled sixth instatement of the
Fast and Furious franchise for Universal Picture by the
end of 2012.
It is said that Justin Lin is still interested to take up
Terminator 5. He might come back if the lead actor Arnold
Schwarzenegger and producer Megan Ellison wait for him until he
wraps up Fast and Furious 6.
Megan Ellison acquired the rights of the Terminator
franchise earlier this year. He has shelled out $20 million for the
film. However, he is yet to hire a script writer and the
distributors for the film.
