Arnold May Return in Terminator 6 as a Human
James Cameron has been chatting about the next Terminator movie for quite some time now. As the film rights are about to return to him in 2019, he has been making big plans for the continuation of the film. Paramount Pictures last stab in the franchise, Terminator Genisys, turned into a bit of a flop, and so all plans for any sequels were put on hold. However, it seems that Paramount are passing the torch over early, with Arnold Schwarzenegger claiming that he will begin shooting Terminator 6 next year.
In an Interview with Kleine Zeitung, he chats about his life and casually drops in that the next Terminator film is coming sooner than expected.
“In the fall I start the shooting on the comedy “Triplets” with Eddie Murphy and Danny DeVito. In March next year, I am shooting “Terminator 6”, James Cameron and David Ellison are back on board and then comes a “Conan”.”
The sixth Terminator film is to be directed by Deadpool’s Tim Miller and more news came to light recently when Cameron chatted with The Arnold Fans about the future film.
“Yeah, you got to ask yourself, ‘Why did they make these characters look and sound like Arnold? 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 outter layer that they grew the Terminator from…and that presumibly 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 center 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.”
This would be a perfect way of getting the 70-year-old Arnold back into the franchise. With James Cameron turning the wheels, we are certainly going to get a good film.
