The Rock for Terminator 5?
A natural choice!

Does Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have the golden touch? Hollywood certainly believes so. The Rock has made a career out of stepping into established properties and giving them a boost. Everything from the The Mummy Returns to G.I. Joe Retaliation. Now it seems as if he might join the Terminator franchise as well.
The WWE Examiner (via AICN) is reporting that Warner Brothers is courting Johnson to appear in the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise. A franchise that recently reacquired Arnold Schwarzenegger. Nothing is official yet, as it pertains to Johnson.
The Examiner is reporting that, “Terminator 5 will be set before the birth of Sarah Connor and focus on her parents in the 1940s and 50s. This scenario would once again involve a Terminator(s) being sent back in time to kill a target, only this time it's decades before the attempts on Sarah and John Connor”.
A premise that was lightly touched upon in the failed Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series.
What do you think Maniacs? This is a natural fit for the franchise. Perhaps Arnie will play an old Terminator who has sent too far back and has aged considerably waiting for the birth of the Connor family. Only time will tell.
