According to this 43Rumors post from last Summer:

Olympus says they are developing a new 500mm MFT lens!

No details about its brightness, but if they plan to make it compatible with the 2x teleconverter it can't be too slow.

That is almost certainly the 150-400mm f4.5 with the inbuilt 1.25x converter which takes it to 500mm.
