In the year-and-a-bit since Arnold Schwarzenegger left the office of Governor of California, he’s wasted no time resuming his film career. Making a cameo in Expendables 2 before easing back into the genial action film The Last Stand. The next step, of course, is a return to the franchise that made his name.
According to a quote released by TheArnoldFans, which is ‘the biggest, best and ballsiest Arnold Schwarzenegger news source’: “…I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator, which we start shooting in January…”
Although it comes as no surprise that he’d want to return to his most famous role, they’re going to be hard-pushed to explain why Skynet created a killing robot who looks like an giant middle-aged woman. Maybe he’ll be tasked with infiltrating John Conner’s retirement facility?
He also went on to drop none-too-subtle hints about other sequel opportunities: “I’m also going to do King Conan – to play that role and also to do another Twins movie,” Governor Schwarzenegger told TAF. “So I feel very proud of that.”
With his willingness to return to his old roles, we should probably hurry up and mail that spec script for a Kindergarten Cop sequel that’s gathering dust in our drawer.
