Bored at work so started googling random topics, here is what I found out about current plans for a fifth Terminator film and beyond.....
 
Quote In statements to FilmJournal, McG revealed his plans to have the movie set in 2011, pre-Judgment Day - similar to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles revelation that Judgment Day takes place on April 21, 2011 - and to bring back the chase feel of the original trilogy.[1] The plot had Skynet discovering how to send non-Infiltrator Terminators such as Hunter-Killers and Harvesters through the Time Displacement Equipment. John Connor goes back through time to fight the machines using present day military tactics and technology while being pursued by a new model Terminator. While in the past, he meets a 60 year-old scientist played by Robert Patrick, who is researching cell replication and was to become the template of the T-1000.[2] McG also planned to have Sarah Connor live until 2011, which would have retconned Terminator 3's plot of her dying of leukemia. Rumors circulated that the film would take place in modern day London, despite the fact that both Terminator 3 and Terminator Salvation state that Judgment Day happened in 2004.
 
But.....

Two more Terminator movies, following on from Terminator: Salvation? That’s what Arnold Schwarzenegger reckons…

Last year, it seemed for a while that a new Terminator movie was steaming ahead. Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to return, and Justin Lin was announced as the director. Furthermore, we were told that Terminator 5 was set to have an R rating, too.

However, then things slowed down. Lin chose to make Fast & Furious 6 instead, and possibly Fast & Furious 7, too. No new director has subsequently been announced, and the new Terminator movie seemed stuck in limbo.

Finally, though, some fresh news about the movie has been forthcoming, courtesy of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s been chatting to Action Effects about the project (which has since gone offline, either because of the mass of traffic, or because this story may yet prove not to be true, although it generally ties with what's been said about the plans thus far), and has also confirmed that the movie is likely to follow on from Terminator: Salvation.

“I can’t say to much they want it held in secret if you know what I mean, but I will say that next year I will start filming it and it’s going to be one of the hardest films I have ever done I can tell you that already for sure”, he revealed.

“They have six months set aside just for filming, so I will be training and getting into the best physical shape I possibly can before filming starts. It does follow Salvation although some of the producers and franchise owner were not too happy about the job McG did with it but they felt it was good enough to continue on, and they want the fifth and sixth instalments to be the closing of the franchise.”

So then. Two more Terminator movies, and the planned trilogy that started with Salvation is set to continue. We’ll keep you posted…

Personally I wouldnt have been against the reboot as I preferred the chase format of the first three films to the post apocalypse war with the machines theme of the fourth, but at least this way they keep the series going as planned rather than taking liberties with some of the original story and re-writing how certain events were supposed to have happened. I did like the idea of Robert Patrick as a scientist who became the default model of the T1000, but that could still be used in any continuation from Salvation.
 
I think it would be difficult to recapture the magic of the first two films anyway, once Cameron stepped down as director the quality wasnt the same, the third film was almost borderline comical rather than being dark and keeping you on the edge of your seat like the first two did.
 
If Arnie returns for even a cameo that would be great, I hope they keep Christian Bale as John Connor though or even go back to Eddie Furlong or Nick Stahl, having a fourth actor play Connor would be ridiculous.

McG needs to stay the fuck away from this franchise, he is an idiot and I don't know how he had anything to do with such a great show as Supernatural.

Looks like Part 5 might be scrapped.

I’m hearing that Paramount and director Alan Taylor are looking closely at Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson to play the role of Sarah Connor in the Terminator reboot that is being assembled for a July, 2015 release. Both actresses have tested for the producers, and they are the frontrunners. I have heard that Clarke has an edge, and that would not be surprising. Before Taylor helmed Thor: The Dark World, he directed Clarke in HBO’s Game Of Thrones. She, of course, plays the unforgettable dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in that massive HBO series, and has demonstrated the mettle to capably play one of the screen’s most formidable heroines as originated by Linda Hamilton in James Cameron’s first two films in the series.
Yep. A Terminator reboot. Probably taking a cue from the upcoming RoboCop reboot; that would be realizing that the franchise has been too screwed up to continue and a re-start is needed.

I’ve also heard that Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn in the original film, will be a character in this version, as will John Connor, so it seems like a jump into the future might be part of the plot line. The completion of this franchise is expected to span at least two films. They are casting the Sarah Connor role before Reese and John Connor.  Stay tuned. The film’s produced by Annapurna’s Megan Ellison and Skydance’s David Ellison, and the script is by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. Arnold Schwarzenegger is booked for a return as the title character.
Arnold? Seriously? Sorry, but the CGI Arnold in Terminator 4 looked like crap. If they are going to reboot then recast the actual Terminator. How scary is it going to be to have a 66 year-old Terminator?

There´s also the story of the T-800 101 Model terminator that Schwarzenegger played in the first three movies being modelled after a captured Resistance soldier/engineer who, due to being muscular and bulky, would be big enough to conceal the metal endoskeleton. So maybe Arnie will be cast in that role during the flash-forwards to the future timeline....

Yeah I heard Arnie may play a ageing member of the resistance who either designed the Terminator model which resembled him so well or just acted as the human prototype for the model, either way it will be great to see him return to the movies which are arguably his best and most iconic role to date. Now in his mid-sixties it will be difficult for Arnie to convincingly portray a Terminator like he did in the original films so a human part is more suitable for him now.
Terminator Salvation wasn't a terrible film but going away from the cat and mouse chase format of the first three films didn't really work and Christian Bale gave a weak performance in the lead role. Definitely the poorest film of the franchise, Arnies absence from the film also went some way to killing its box-office appeal.

Bottom line is a reboot would seem to be the best direction for these movies now, especially after the length of time that has passed since Salvation. I'm a huge Terminator fan and welcome a new film in this series in any shape or form.

sorry, but how convincing does he have to be? he'll be playing a robot. it doesn't require emotion range. from my memory of the first film, it didn't require too much physicality that would show his age, and stunt work would be done by a double or CGIed to fuck.

the reason the first film was so scary was for the same reason Michael Myers was scary in the first Halloween; the slow, methodical walking, and the ability to always catch up with his prey, regardless of them running or driving at full speed. a bit of decent make-up to hide the wrinkles, and he'll look fine.

it's one of those ones that's hard to see someone else as the character. it's not the same as Jason Vorhees, or the aforementioned Myers, where the face is never seen - or at least is not a normal face - and in the case of all the films that have been/are being remade, this makes a change to keep the actor playing the titular character the same.

it's for that reason that A Nightmare On Elm Street failed, it'll be the reason Leprechaun fails.

No, the reason Leprechaun will fail is Hornswoggle in the title role.

The thing is, every Terminator included a naked shot of the Model either right after the timeshift or in T4´s case, coming out of that cell. Arnie, as mentioned is in his mid-sixties. He´s got some major moobage going on, I definately do NOT want to see that.

I would really like the idea of him playing the resistance guy that the Terminator model eventually was based on tho.

ok, not my view, but you have that, then you will just get the fanboys, and those annoying people who put every little fault up on imdb.com, saying, if it's based on the guy when he's 60, why make him younger when you're a machine and have no need for age to be a factor?

like tonight, T2 is on Film 4, and watching it, with Arnie walking naked into the biker bar, and the women looking down to his cock, I began to wonder why the machines would include it. after all, they would surely know the enemy enough to know what the dick was for, and that it was surplus to their requirements, so why keep it on their Terminator models?

this is the kind of dumb things you think when you watch a movie like this, but it doesn't spoil your enjoyment of it. no reason Arnie's age need be an issue for the next 2 if he does repress the Terminator role.

The cock question is easily answered. The T-800 was constructed to be the perfect infiltration unit, completely undetectable to humans when coming in contact with them. Skynet however did not have any information on how deep (huh huh) the resistance would check for hidden weapons etc. in case a stranger (Terminator) would show up at their base. So, logical thinking would be, in case they strip the terminator down completely, he has to appear completely human in every way. I mean, a missing dong would defiantely be an indicator of the guy NOT being a guy.

As for the age not being a factor if he´s playing a robot, that´s correct in essentials, however, I still see the fact that he would be playing those parts. And judging from the direction the series has taken so far, there was more physicality involved the longer the series progressed. So, I doubt that Arnie´s body at this stage could take being the Terminator again. and if T4 was any indication, I do NOT want it CGI´d. 

A solution to this would be to just mildly alter Arnie´s aged features (like they did with Patrick Stewart in X-Men 3) and have him portray the resistance soldier/engineer that way. I mean, hell, there was even a different looking terminator in T1 already, so why not? (Kyle Reese flashback, the Terminator was played by Franco Columbu)

You could also completely give the Terminator role to Roland Kickinger. He has the physical appearance for it and is familiar with the history of the character already. (he was the body of the T-800 model in Salvation)
