Director Justin Lin is currently promoting his high-octane sequel Fast Five, due in theaters April 29, and there is talk about his potential involvement in The Terminator franchise.

Back in February, a report surfaced that indicated Universal Pictures wants to pair up Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan for a new Terminator movie, and it seems the director has discusses the prospect with Fast Five star Vin Diesel. Here's what the director had to say below.

"Vin's been a really great partner on this franchise. 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 indie movie."

The director stopped short of confirming Vin Diesel's involvement in a new Terminator adventure, though.

"You never know."

It isn't clear if Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan have in fact signed deals to direct and write a Terminator movie yet. Universal is among several studios vying for distribution rights to the franchise, which was purchased by Pacificor last year. There was also talk that Arnold Schwarzenegger may return to the franchise, although that has not been confirmed yet either.

    I can actually see him as a really cool terminator, considering how he plays the heartless Killer in Riddick.
