Justin Lin will NOT direct the Terminator
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Try and try again, I never seem to learn my lesson. It seems that Justin Lin may have bitten more than he could chew with regard to the gargantuan amount of products landing on his lap after watching Fast Five destroy the box office earlier this summer, and it seems he has to drop some of these projects in order to maintain a healthy schedule.

He already had to drop out of the Highlander reboot but I was really confident, as were many others, that Terminator would be one of the few he kept involved with due to the amount of planning and groundwork he’d already prepared for the return of the Governator. He is willing to return to the project if Ellison and company are willing to wait for him to free up some time.
I won’t hold my breath. By that time Lin’s name could be in even higher demand and to start hedging bets that he won’t consider other offers in that amount of time is laughable. I’m pretty bummed out that Lin had to drop out of this project but I do hope that there’s a backup plan with another director in mind who can devote themselves to the project within a reasonable time.
There is a backup plan, right?
