Justin Lin Clears Up Terminator 5 Rumors, and 5 Other Stories You'll Be Talking About Today
Also in this Thursday edition of The Broadsheet: The Catfish team gets Paranormal... Tomb Raider hires some blockbuster-y writers... Steven Spielberg's Lincoln film will shoot this fall... and more ahead.
· Arnold Schwarzenegger may have chosen Cry Macho as his comeback film, but what everyone really wants to talk about is Terminator 5. For instance, was that rumor about the Justin Lin-directed film bringing back the entire original cast actually true? "No. I don't know where that came from," Lin told MTV. "Everything has just been between me and Arnold, you know? Just us going out and trying to find the right partners. I have certain elements, but it's never been about, 'Hey, let's bring everybody back!' I just don't process that way. To me, thematically, there are certain things that I want to see in a Terminator movie. A lot of that does draw back to creating this timeline that is an extension, closer tonally to the first and second movies. But to me, it's not as mathematical as, 'Hey, let's get everybody back together and we'll shoot the movie.'" [MTV]
· At least there won't be a debate over whether their next film is real. Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the guys behind the controversial documentary Catfish, have signed up to direct Paranormal Activity 3. The film -- which hopefully won't center on a demon possessing Facebook -- is set to hit theaters on Oct. 21. Get crackin', fellas! [Variety]
· Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens co-screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have been hired to write the reboot of Tomb Raider. [Deadline]
· Steven Spielberg will begin filming Lincoln this fall in Virginia. "Virginia's rich historic legacy, coupled with the remarkable period architecture found in Richmond and Petersburg, make central Virginia the ideal location for this production," said the Oscar-winning director in a statement.

· For his next trick, Jay Baruchel will try his hand at screenwriting. The awkward member of Team Apatow will adapt the comic Random Acts of Violence, and rewrite The Exorcism Diaries for Summit Entertainment. [THR/Heat Vision]
