While taking a break from working on Terminator Salvation, director McG took a plane to Dubai to attend the Dubai International Film Festival, where he announced that he will be developing a sequel to Terminator Salvation.
Halcyon Co. toppers Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek are developing a fifth instalment of the man-vs.-machine franchise.
Helmer McG, who directed the upcoming fourth pic, “Terminator Salvation,” is working with the Halcyon duo on the latest project.
No decision has been made as to where to film the next “Terminator,” although the Middle East was mentioned as a locale.
The duo had originally planned to wait until the release of “Terminator Salvation” next summer before deciding on whether to proceed with the next chapter, but the positive studio, fan and media reaction to footage from the current pic has encouraged them to move forward ahead of schedule.
Christian Bale has signed on in the role of John Connor for all three films, and the next installment, after Terminator Salvation, is tentatively scheduled for a 2011 release.
