There’s a reason I often complain about rumors. Because not a week after we write about the possibility of the full cast from the first movie returning, Director Justin Lin says that it is absolutely incorrect, and that is not the way that he thinks. The Daily Blam has this quote straight from Lin:
“Everything has just been between me and Arnold… Just us going out and trying to find the right partners. I have certain elements, but it’s never been about, ‘Hey, let’s bring everybody back!’ I just don’t process that way.
“To me, thematically, there are certain things that I want to see in a ‘Terminator’ movie. A lot of that does draw back to creating this timeline that is an extension, closer tonally to the first and second movies. But to me, it’s not as mathematical as, ‘Hey, let’s get everybody back together and we’ll shoot the movie.’”
Ultimately, we are beyond happy that Lin is intending to ignore the existence of T3 and T4, as we have been doing. Also, I’m going to remind us all about something we already know, and will forget and soon as we hear the next rumor: rumors suck. But they give us something to talk about while we are waiting for a teaser, a trailer, and the final product. And when those come out, “I’ll be back”.
