U-571 Director Gunning for Terminator 3

Variety says Jonathan Mostow, the director of surprisingly-good films like "Breakdown" and "U-571," is in talks to direct the third "Terminator." If a deal is finalized, "Terminator 3" will probably go into production once the looming actor's strike is ironed out.

Mostow has a talent for crafting tight thrillers, so his involvement with "Terminator" could lead to a leaner, smarter addition to the franchise. Also notable are Mostow's screenwriting credits for "Breakdown" and U-571." Neither film is soiled by the godawful cliched dialogue often employed by former "Terminator" director James Cameron.

Previous directors rumored for "T3" include Ridley Scott ("Gladiator," "Hannibal"), David Fincher ("Fight Club"), and John McTiernan ("Die Hard").
