How do you rate this still?
According to a source close to the production, Dwayne Johnson is targeted for the villain role in Terminator 5. The Rock is becoming a major action star, and it will most definitely be hilarious to see him kick Arnold Schwarzenegger's a*s. Read on to see how both actors are involved in T5:
The Examiner has gotten word from a source close to the production that Annapurna Films - the company that owns the rights to the franchise - is now developing a script for Terminator 5 that has a role specifically for Johnson - namely the villain.

But the story doesn't stop there. While the site doesn't seem to have 100% confidence in their source, they do outline what could be a fascinating turn for the franchise. Rather than being set in the future like Terminator Salvation, the rumor says that the plot will actually be set back in the 1940s or 50s. While Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he will be back for the sequel (see what I did there?), the new report says that he actually won't be playing a robot. Instead, he will play a man whose ability to protect the Connor family during that time period inspired the design of the T-800 from James Cameron's 1984 sci-fi classic. Given this plot description, presumably Johnson would be playing the robot that is sent back in time to face off against Schwarzenegger's human character.
