Arnold Schwarzenegger himself announced that he will be back in Terminator 5 and to star as the Terminator once again. Schwarzenegger also went on to say that shooting for the film will begin next January.
Some rumored that he would be playing the human soldier that ended up being the design inspiration for the original T-800 but this confirms that he will in fact, be the Terminator. This is interesting given the fact that he was in office when the last film came out and that he’s in the mid 60’s in age. While The Last Stand was an okay movie, an old Schwarzenegger beating up on younger foes isn’t very believable to me. That being said, as the Terminator it could be very different given the nature of the role.
Currently, T5 has no director and the movie itself isn’t even greenlighted yet so technically this is just all theory. So it’ll be fun to see how it plays out and if a 66-year-old Schwarzenegger will work as the Terminator again. Consider me on board though.
