It seemed as though Arnold Schwarzenegger’s time as The Terminator ended when Paramount pulled the plug on a Terminator: Genisys sequel. However, with recent rumblings of a continuation of the franchise not to mention a potential involvement by James Cameron, Schwarzenegger changed his tune. He told movie site Fandango:
I’m looking forward to doing another Terminator movie, yes. I don’t want to call it, like, fake news, like the president calls it, but I think people just write things — I have no idea why. Just because Paramount doesn’t want to pick up the Terminator franchise, you have 15 other studios willing to do it — that doesn’t mean the Terminator franchise is finished, right? It just means they are on their way to negotiate with another studio, but I can’t give you the details of that. They’ll announce that. But, yes, the Terminator franchise is never finished. And remember that after 2018, James Cameron is getting it back, and then it will continue on!
I don’t really know how to react to this. The reality is that Arnold is 69 years old. I love the guy and wish he could be President of the United States, but as far as Terminator movies, what the hell else is this guy going to do? I certainly don’t doubt his work ethic and at 69 I’m sure he would beat my 38 year old body to a pulp, but I just can’t see this lasting much longer if at all. More power to Arnold but they better start filming fast.
