Yesterday, Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed what many fans have been waiting months for, the start date for filming on Terminator 5 as well as Schwarzenegger’s return to the series. Talking to TheArnoldFans.com, Schwarzenegger talked a little about his involvement in the project.
“I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in ‘Terminator 5‘ and to star as the Terminator,” he says, “…we start shooting in January and I’m also going to do ‘King Conan‘. To play that role and also to do another ‘Twins‘ movie. I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I’m looking forward to doing those films.”
Schwarzenegger’s specific role in Terminator 5 has been one of some debate. Many fans have suggested that, because of his age, he might be playing a human character instead of the actual Terminator.
Schwarzenegger’s confirmed involvement in the project comes on the heels of word that the franchise will be moving to Paramount Pictures. Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are teaming up to script the next installment.
