McG Says He's Directing Two More 'Terminator' Films

So even though the rights to the Terminator franchise are currently being auctioned off, Terminator Salvation director McG still seems convinced that he'll be directing two more Terminator films. Speaking during a BD-Live event for Salvation (which is a way for filmmakers to answer questions – and for fans to communicate with each other -- through a special Blu-ray feature), McG kinda announced that he'd be helming a part five and six of the franchise, though this information is only based off some live-blog commentary from Gizmodo – meaning it hasn't been officially confirmed and McG could've been simply talking out of his you know what.

 
The reason I say that is because the company that brought McG on to direct Terminator Salvation will soon relinquish the rights to the franchise to someone else…and that someone else may not want McG to direct two more films. They may want to reboot the entire franchise and start fresh. Then again, I'm not a lawyer, so if McG signed a contract to direct three films and the franchise rights are sold, I'm not positive what happens to that contract. Is it still valid?
 
McG also mentioned during the chat that he'd like Sarah Connor to return for the sequel, though he wasn't sure how he'd make that happen. Sounds to me like he's just trying to make a whole lotta something out of nothing, and I wouldn't exactly count any chickens before they hatch here. As of right now, no one is financing a new Terminator movie – and until it safely lands in someone else's hands, we shouldn't even have this conversation.
 
What do you think? Should McG be allowed to direct another Terminator movie, or should they find someone else?
