Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his role as the Terminator is, well, not that surprising really.
Arnie’s played the cybrog in the previous four films, so it’s not really a stretch of the imagination to imagine him in the fifth is it?
If the news had been that an 85-year-old woman was taking over, we’d feel a bit more blindsided.
Having said that, Arnold seems quite shocked at the news:
“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.”
You’re all doing the voice, right?
Apparently there had been some whispers Arnold would return to the franchise as a human character.
But, some are now speculating that what Arnold is actually getting at, is that he’ll be the only Terminator character in the movie – a return to the style of James Cameron’s original movie.
It’ll be quite a year of repeats for Arnold, who is also to work alongside Danny DeVito in the Twins sequel, Triplets, and will rejoin the King Conan cast, also in 2014.
Well, it beats the suit and tie needed to be the Governor of California anyway.
