Arnie says Terminator 5 is on
We knew already that The Legend of Conan, Triplets and another Terminator were underway, and we even heard that there were writers set on the task of delivering a script for Terminator 5, but we hadn't heard much more.
That hasn't changed, even with this news, again we still haven't heard that much more but we do have a big tease that Arnold Schwarzenegger is indeed going to be involved. Well so far he is, let's see how the script goes.
Last we heard was that there were two writers on the task of delivering the script for Terminator 5 and they were Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. One writer suggests teen-friendly 3D and the other has some good credits to their name, I was curious to find out what would happen.
Well we're still going to be curious, although one detail was on our minds, would the original Terminator be coming back? Especially since he's returned to his film career.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken. Through The Metro and The Guardian the man has spoken and revealed that he could well be in this next Terminator film. When asked what he could say about Terminator 5 he said the following:
"We're writing it now. There are three projects being written that involve me. One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there's the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets. We'll all look quite different in that. The third triplet is Eddie Murphy, so figure that one out."
We'd already heard about the three films, especially the shocking story of Triplets, but for Terminator 5 it does look like Arnie is coming back. The question will be if they are going to do something clever with his character or just have him coming back as another Terminator. You might remember the deleted/additional footage from Terminator Salvation (Filmstalker review) that showed the soldier that was used to model the skin for the original Terminator, played again by Arnie but overdubbed with a very different voice.
Could we see some story about the man who created the skin or the robot, or will we just see him coming back as an older skinned Terminator? Who knows. Right now it's clear that Arnie believes he's in it and he's coming back. He's going to be a part of it and you could read between the lines and see that he thinks that it's going to be more than just a passing CG shot.
