Deadline New York:
Right around the time the bankruptcy was settled, Deadline also reported that William Wisher—James Cameron’s collaborator on Terminator 2 and an uncredited co-writer on the original, wrote a 24-page treatment for the next film and a four-page concept outline for a sixth Terminator film.

It will be most interesting to see what shape this franchise takes.
