Schwarzenegger promises T2 feel to Terminator: Genesis
Terminator: Genesis is going to be closer in feel to Terminator 2, reckons Arnold Schwarzenegger...
Arnold Schwarzenegger has a new film coming out at the end of the month, in the shape of Sabotage. This is a project that's gone through a few titles (it started out with the name Ten), but basically sees Arnie alongside Sam Worthington in an action movie directed by David Ayer (End Of Watch).
Schwarzenegger has started doing press for the film in the US, and you won't be surprised to hear that Terminator: Genesis is an upcoming film that he's being asked about a lot. Confirming that the new movie is set to start shooting in New Orleans at the end of April, Schwarzenegger told the site that "Terminator is going to have the exact same feel".
He added that "the way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, “Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?”
That Thor director he's on about there is Alan Taylor, who helmed Thor: The Dark World. It's not, to our knowledge, been officially announced that he's the director of Terminator: Genesis, but it's been a badly kept secret for some time now that he is.
Schwarzenegger also confirmed he's still making the belated Twins sequel, Triplets.
The full interview is here and Terminator: Genesis is set to arrive in cinemas next summer.
