14/08/17 - Schwarzenegger's Terminator is back

news pic Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he's back and will start shooting the new Terminator film in March 2018.

SPOILER ALERT

Producer James Cameron revealed that Schwarzenegger will be playing a human character, whose DNA served as the basis for the T-800 Terminator models.

"You got to ask yourself, 'Why did they make these characters look and sound like Arnold?'", said Cameron. "There has to be a reason. So yeah, it has flashed through my mind that there has to have been a prototype. There has to have been a guy who's DNA was harvested from, that they grew the organic outer layer that they grew the Terminator from... and that presumably was a real person at some point. Now, the question is, did that person have some sort of meaning to Skynet on WHY they chose that one (Arnold)? Or was it like a whole rack of Terminators and the one that happened to be the Arnold model just happened to be closest to the door going out to the time displacement centre and all the others looked different? I've asked myself these questions but it's never been resolved... so stay tuned! We're talking pretty seriously now about doing some new Terminator films or possibly a trilogy and you'll just have to see what surfaces in those."

In terms of what people can expect, I think this will be one of the more fun or lighthearted movies so far in the DC universe. It certainly will be a departure.”

I could not be more excited to tell this story. It feels like being given the key to a treasure chest. And oh yeah, we’ll have billy-bumblers!”
