It seems folks around Arnold Schwarzenegger's camp have become very chatty over the last twenty four hours. Following news this morning of another potential Arnie movie, "Cry Macho," now comes some interesting tidbits about that "Terminator" movie that's currently trying to find a studio to take it on.

Latino Review report that in the pitch that's making it's way around offices in Hollywood -- under the working title "Terminator 2012" -- it has, according to their source the "entire original cast" attached to star. Of course, what that actually means is up for debate. We presume that means Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong but can't really think of anyone else significant enough to warrant a return. Maybe Michael Biehn? As usual plot details are being kept on lock down for the film that has "Fast Five" director Justin Lin attached, but apparently it will be set in the present day. Whether or not it will fit into the timelines further established by "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and "Terminator Salvation" remains to be seen.

So yeah, more Arnie chatter for your Friday. Frankly, we don't think anyone is too invested in the Terminator mythology as it stands now so going back and having the story follow the events of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" -- easily the most popular of the entire franchise -- would be a smart way to go. But who knows at this point.

Now which one of many of these projects actually rolls first is anyone's guess. Vulture asserts it's "Cry Macho" but there is some complicated rights issues with "Terminator" which may have studios wanting to get that one rolling first before the domestic license reverts back to James Cameron in 2018. This certainly isn't the last we'll hear of this.
