Could Vin Diesel Be The Next Terminator?

One of the crasiest rumours on the internet this week is that Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious and Riddick) could well be the next version of a Terminator in the upcoming 5th installment, but the rumour is only based on the fact that the new director is Justin Lin... Director of "Fast and Furious", and what he's said below ..

Lin says the only person he's actually approached for T5 at the moment is Arnold Schwarzenneger himself, but the director doesn't rule out Diesel's involvement in the project, readily admitting he's discussed the Terminator mythology with Diesel before:

"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."
So when Lin was asked whether we should expect to see Diesel on T5—and perhaps take on Arnold's Terminator (yeah, we know Arnold may be getting too old for this, but special effects are getting better and better all the time, so who knows?) or Skynet in the process, Lin's coy reply was:

"You never know."
