Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He’s Still Doing TERMINATOR, TWINS Sequels

The movie business has been tougher on good ol’ Arnold since he came back to Hollywood from politics–chances are you didn’t even know that a movie he starred in called Aftermath even came out just last month. So who can blame him for wanting to get back to the properties he does best? Even though the last Terminator sequel felt like a betrayal to a lot of fans when it turned John Connor evil, he was still good in it, both as Old Man Terminator “Pops” and as digitally recreated Young Arnold.

We previously mentioned that the rights to Terminator were returning to James Cameron, who hopes to produce another installment with Deadpool‘s Tim Miller directing. But only today did Schwarzenegger confirm the last part of the puzzle. Talking to Screen Daily from Cannes, he is quoted as saying “It is back” and “I will be in the movie.” He also said that the Twins sequel, Triplets, which he announced off-the-cuff at an Expendables panel years ago at Comic-Con, nearly has a completed script, and Eddie Murphy is still attached to play Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito’s long-lost third brother.

So how exactly will he be back in Terminator continuity? Genisys probably won’t be considered canon moving forward, but its notion that Terminator flesh ages like regular humans needs to be maintained if the star is to do more than digitally paste his head onto somebody else’s body. Johnny Depp and Kurt Russell both have big flashback scenes this summer where they have been impressively de-aged, but that’s tough to pull off for an entire film.

Can a reunion of Schwarzenegger and Cameron entice you back to the Terminator franchise? Don’t just tawk to dah hand–leave us a comment below!
