He said he’d be back, and he wasn’t kidding around.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed plans are afoot for another “Terminator” movie, revealing he’ll be reprising his role as a robotic assassin in what will be the sixth film in the mega-hit franchise
“It is back,” the former California governor told Screen Daily, noting that he recently met with the original’s director, James Cameron, to discuss the project.
“It is moving forward,” said Schwarzenegger, who is currently in Cannes to promote the documentary “Wonders Of The Sea 3D”.
“He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise,” he said, adding: “I will be in the movie.”
Schwarzenegger also had some news to share about some other potential sequels, including the long-awaited return of Conan the Barbarian, in which he would reprise his role as the sword-swinging warrior king. “It’s being rewritten,” he said, “the idea is to do it.”
Schwarzenegger also confirmed that the rumoured “Twins” sequel — “Triplets” — is a go, and could go into production as early as this year.
“The script will be finished in a month,” he noted, confirming he’ll be joined by former co-star Danny DeVito and new “brother” Eddie Murphy, with Ivan Reitman — who directed the 1986 original — on board as well.
“It’s just around the corner,” said Schwarzenegger.
