London: Dwayne Johnson has been rumoured to be in line for `Terminator 5`.

The `Fast & Furious 6` star is in talks to join Arnold Schwarzenegger in the highly-anticipated action sequel, according to Digital Spy.

The report also suggests that the film will be set in the 1940s or 50s, and will centre around Sarah Connor`s parents before she has been born.
