Arnold Schwarzenegger may be an old man, but he’s not taking the girly-man route and switching his focus to more intelligent, contemplative movies like that pencil-neck Clint Eastwood. Oh no, according to Arnold he’s going to make up for all that time wasted as Governor of California by filming two new Terminator movies back-to-back.
No word on who’s working on the scripts for these Terminator sequels, and Fast Five director Justin Lin recently abandoned the project, but that matters not to Arnold. He’s apparently going to will these movies into existence by just working out really hard.
“… they have six months set aside just for filming, so I will be training and getting into the best physical shape I possibly can before filming starts. It does follow Salvation although some of the producers and franchise owners were not too happy about the job McG did with it, but they felt it was good enough to continue on and they want the fifth and sixth instalments to be the closing of the franchise.”
If this was anybody but Schwarzenegger talking, I’d say they were delusional. There’s no script, no director, your star is an old man who looks like a melting wax dummy and nobody gives a hot f–k about the Terminator franchise anymore. This shouldn’t happen, but Schwarzenegger wants it to happen, so it’ll happen. The movies may just be four hours of Arnold in the gym lifting weights with some robot prosthetics stuck to his face, but it’ll happen.
