As the actor and former governor of California prepares to turn 70, he’s also preparing for his comeback as The Terminator. At the eve of his 70th birthday, Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms he is doing the sixth film of The Terminator.
He said he has recently met with producer James Cameron to initially discuss the 6th installment of the blockbuster series.
“It is back. It is moving forward. He (Cameron) has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie,” Schwarzenegger revealed.
The latest movie Terminator Genisys was released in 2015. The next film is expected to be out in 2019. Cameron, who is producing the film is reportedly teaming up with Deadpool director Tim Miller and Skydance director David Ellison.
Cameron originally sold the rights to the original film to Gale Anne Hurd with an agreement that he will still be allowed to direct the film. After directing Terminator 2: Judgment Day which grossed $519.8 worldwide, he stepped away from the franchise. In 2019, he will regain his rights over The Terminator.
There is still much to be discussed on what form the movie will take but with Schwarzenegger’s return, fans will surely look forward to watching it.
