Schwarzenegger reveals Terminator 5 shoot date, new details
Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed where he fits into Terminator 5, and when it shoots. Plus more on King Conan and Triplets...
It looks as if the brand new Terminator film is finally starting to get somewhere. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Paramount Pictures was picking up distribution rights to Terminator 5. And Arnold Schwarzenegger has now confirmed to TheArnoldFans that the film is going to start shooting in January 2014.
Furthermore, he's also been clear about his role in the new movie. "I'm very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator, when we start shooting in January".
It'd be easy for us to read too much into this, but is Schwarzenegger inferring there that he might be the single Terminator in the movie, going back to the approach of the very first movie? Crucially, wouldn't that make him the antagonist, again for the first time since James Cameron's original? These are questions that we don't know definite answers to, but it'd suggest that there's a desire to capture what made The Terminator tick in the first place if true.
Furthermore, Schwarzenegger has given a brand new update on the state of two further sequels he's working on, King Conan and Triplets. It looks as if the plan now is to do King Conan after Terminator 5. And Arnie also added that "I'm getting the script in two weeks from now about the sequel to Twins, which will be called Triplets". You might recall that the working plan is for Triplets to reunite Schwarzenegger with Danny DeVito, and to also add Eddie Murphy to the mix.
So, it looks as if 2014 for Schwarzenegger will be about his three mooted sequels. We still don't know who's going to be directing any of them, though, but we'll keep you posted as we hear more...
