Director Justin Lin (Fast Five) has revealed that there may be room for the actor to pop up in his future installment of the Terminator franchise and has spoken to Diesel about the mythology.
Justin Lin recently worked with Vin Diesel on the most recent sequel to the Fast and Furious franchise. Although he hasn't approached the actor on a business level about taking a role in his future Terminator flick, Lin doesn't dismiss the idea either. When asked if Diesel would be making an appearance Lin replied, "You never know.
“We’ve talked about the mythology (of the Terminator series...)([pause) he’s a great guy and a great actor. I really like working with him so anything I do I usually talk to him about. Sometimes we even talk about going back and doing a little indy movie," said Lin.
The director dropped these details during a press junket for the upcoming Fast Five but Universal Studios have hired Lin to helm the upcoming fifth entry in the Terminator franchise. Lin would neither confirm nor deny Diesel's potential involvement but did say that he has approached Arnold Schwarzenneger about a possible return to the big screen.
