Exclusive : Will Vin Diesel get to play a Terminator?

Exclusive : Will Vin Diesel get to play a Terminator?

I was lucky enough to attend the “Fast Five” junket in Rio over the weekend (can I get a ‘hell yeah!?) where I spoke to both cast and crew about the very-fun “Ocean’s Eleven”-esque installment of that very, very popular series (the people of Rio went cwazy for Vin, Rock and Paul – and fair enough!). Surely tons of pictures of the stars were added to Brazilian photo books over the course of their time there.

Justin Lin, the film’s director, was recently reported to be up for directing duties on a new “Terminator” film for Universal, and almost immediately rumours began to swirl – particularly at the junket – that Vin Diesel might be in line for a role in the film. Fair assumption, after all, Vin and Justin are not only good friends but they’ve now worked together several times (if you include Vin’s cameo in “Tokyo Drift”) and are already planning to work together again.

While Lin is open to the idea of his “Fast” lead taking on Skynet, the only person he has approached so far about “Terminator 5” is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Still, it’s not out of the question.

“Vin’s been a really great partner on this franchise”, Lin says of the duo’s involvement in the “Fast” series. “We’ve talked about the mythology [of the Terminator series]…[pause] he’s a great guy and a great actor. I really like working with him so anything I do I usually talk to him about. Sometimes we even talk about going back and doing a little indy movie.”

So can we expect Vin in “T5” or not!?

“You never know”, says an unrevealing Lin.

Put your votes in now! Would you like to see Vin and Arnold go at it in a new “Terminator”!?
