Arnold Schwarzenegger is expecting to return to play a role in yet another Terminator movie, according to a report coming from the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday.
With the mixed reactions to the latest Terminator film, some wondered if the franchise might be shuttered for good.
Alas, that all changed back in January when news dropped that Terminator 2 director James Cameron is planning to jump back into the Terminator franchise (as producer) in 2019 when he regain some rights to the franchise. Given that change in direction, it’s no surprise that Schwarzenegger revealed to Screen Daily that he recently met Cameron about being involved in an upcoming Terminator movie.
“It is moving forward,” the actor told Screen Daily while in Cannes. “He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise … I will be in the movie.”
However, even if Cameron hands the movie off to another director, now that he’s knee deep in a massive Avatar sequel series, it seems unlikely that a Cameron/ Schwarzenegger team up could happen any time soon. In the meantime, as Cameron attempts to pull off the ultimate Hollywood juggling act, we can only hope that a return to Terminator greatness for the pair will actually happen.
