Variety is reporting that Halcyon Co. execs Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek are working with Terminator Salvation director McG on a fifth installment of the popular franchise.
Terminator Salvation was always planned to be the first in a new trilogy, but the announcement to move forward with another installment was originally expected to be withheld until the release of the film next summer, but positive studio, fan and media reaction to recently released footage of the film has encouraged Halcyon to move forward ahead of schedule:
“We feel the time is now to start shaping the next part of this,” Kubicek said.
The announcement was made at the Dubai International Film Festival, where McG was in attendance.
Christian Bale is already signed on for the role of John Connor in all three films.
