Actor Dwayne Johnson is reportedly being sought to star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 5. No character details were given, but an insider claims that there is a version of the script that is specifically crafted for Dwayne Johnson to play the Terminator.
While nothing is set in stone yet, there are other intriguing details that have surfaced about the story. Insiders claim that Arnold Schwarzenegger is actually playing a human, who protects the parents of Sarah Connor in the 1940s and 1950s. There is a theory that this man's ability to safeguard Sarah's parents with outdated equipment, lead to the machines building a Terminator in his likeness, which was sent back to the year 1984 to kill Sarah Connor in The Terminator.
However, this unconfirmed information contradicts what Arnold Schwarzenegger himself said last week, when he revealed that he is playing the Terminator once again. Still, the notion of Dwayne Johnson and Arnold Schwarzenegger battling on the big screen would likely give a big jolt to this sequel's box office prospects. Arnold Schwarzenegger also revealed last week that Terminator 5 will start production in early 2014.
