Arnold Schwarzenegger To Return As The ‘Terminator’! Film Shoots Early Next Year!

A few days ago we heard that Paramount was in negotiations to secure the distribution rights for a fifth Terminator film. The film is being produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures as well as David Ellison’s Skydance Productions. Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are writing the script for the fifth film.

With all of that seemingly going well, Arnold Schwarzenegger is sort of confirming his involvement, and the likelihood that he will be playing one of the titular machines. According to TheArnoldFans.com he said, ““In fact, I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the ‘Terminator’, which we start shooting in January and I’m also going to do ‘King Conan’ – to play that role and also to do another ‘Twins’ movie.

This is from an actor, so it’s to be taken with a grain of sale until the studio confirms it – but it’s looking good (depending on if you actually want to see this movie). Also? Twins 2!!!

Megan Ellison paid more than $20 million in 2011 to acquire the rights for a new Terminator film. However, she must make a film by 2019 before the rights revert back to the creator of the franchise, James Cameron.

    So the Terminator looks older in T2, he then looks much older in T3, and then for Terminator Salvation he looks like he did in the first film, now he will look like he’s pushing 70… Skynet must really be in love with the arnold design to make soo many variations of it. And does disguising the robots to look like people work if the robots all look like Arnold? The terminators all look the same but John Connor morphs into a different person from film to film.

    LOL! Good points Rake. I was thinking whats the point of using Arnold again when he clearly bankrupted California! I will never go see any film he stars in theatres again except maybe Expendables 3 if it happens. But then he’ll be a co-star again and I dont live in California so I wont support any one who wont return support to the working class.

    Wow, this would certainly be pushing it. Perhaps a believable story line would be for Arnold to portray the aging human character on which the original Arnold terminator was designed. Meh, the first two were cool, I could take ‘em or leave ‘em after that. This will be just another cash cow for hollywood.
