Terminator: Is the T-1000 coming back?

Terminator 2: Judgment Day star Robert Patrick has confirmed speculation that he could return for Terminator 5.


According to the actor, who played android assassin T-1000 in the film, director McG approached him about the possibility of reprising the cult character for a rumoured sequel to this summer’s Terminator Salvation:


“I’m interested. I was listening to him tell me about it… We saw each other and he talked to me about it, so we’ll see what happens,” he said.


“The sci-fi genre, and specifically that character, is something I’m very proud of. It’s what broke me out big to the world.”


McG had previously suggested bringing Patrick back as a “cell replication” scientist, saying: “Imagine seeing a 60-year-old Robert Patrick and knowing, ‘Holy s**t! That’s gonna be the T-1000, who comes back perfect, lean and the whole thing’.”
