Terminator 5 has a script (from Avatar‘s Laeta Kalogridis and Drive Angry‘s Patrick Lussier) and Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to star, but production stalled after director Justin Lin left to make Fast and Furious 6.

The Terminator franchise is now showing sings of life, as The Wrap reports that Paramount is in negotiations to distribute the next sequel. The dealmaking shows that the producers are still determined to get the film made, and the site reports that the film could go into production as early as next year if the parties can get along and find a director.

You can buy the Terminator Quadrilogy on DVD for £12.48 at Amazon.co.uk.
