A few days ago we talked about the rumour that the entire original cast will return for the fifth "Terminator" film, which "Fast Five" director Justin Lin has been working on. Several names being thrown around were Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn.

MTV caught up with Lin and asked if there is any truth to the story.

No. I don't know where that came from. Everything has just been between me and Arnold [Schwarzenegger]. 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.

Lin continued:

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.'

Maybe this is a blessing. As much as I want Terminator to go back to it's roots, bringing the original cast back - to whatever extent - may not be the best way. I only hope that Bale will return and star alongside Arnie.
