Arnold Schwarzenegger talks Terminator: Genesis, plus rumored plot details

03.03.2014

TERMINATOR: GENESIS is scheduled to start filming next month, and at the Arnold Sports Festival in Ohio over the weekend, TheArnoldFans.com asked Arnold Schwarzenegger about the upcoming film. The site wanted to know what we should expect from the film.

We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in LA but most of it will be done in New Orleans. I'm really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn't be in that movie but now I'm back again and they are very excited about having me in the film. And David Ellison, who has produced all the big movies lately, has plenty of money to do it well. He's in partnership with Paramount Pictures who are going to release the movie through their distribution. I'm really looking forward to that and it's going to come out on July 4th weekend in 2015. The movie preparation is going well. The script is fantastic so I'm really looking forward to this film."

But what about the script makes it fantastic? TERMINATOR: GENESIS is suppose to be the start of a new stand-alone trilogy, but that's really all we know at this point. Moviehole.com hasn't read the script, however they've talked to someone who might know a thing or two about the new film. Their source isn't working on the film, but the site says they are a reputable source.

If Moviehole.com's source is correct, there could be some spoilers ahead, so you may want to avoid these possible plot details on TERMINATOR: GENESIS. You've been warned.

Firstly, we will indeed be revisiting the events of the original 1984 film again. The ‘Terminator’ from the future will arrive on earth, attack some punks (keen to see who they get to play ‘Bill Paxton’), and then slaughter his way through a bunch of Sarah Connors’ – until he finds the correct target. And all the characters that appeared in the Cameron original, like Detective Hal Vukovich (played by Lance Henriksen in the original), Lieutenant Ed Traxler (played by Paul Winfield way back when), Sarah’s roomie Ginger (Bess Motta in the ’84 film) and, yep, even Pugsley the Iguana, return. So, yep, we’ll likely get to see Schwarzenegger back in the leather jacket and cool sunglasses he wore in the original. And, of course, Kyle Reese (Courtney) volunteers to go back to 1984 and save Sarah – just as he did first time around. But don’t expect everything to work out like it did in the original.. something is going to play out different.

And then, we’ll also be taken back to the events of the sequel. The scene where the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick in “Terminator 2 : Judgement Day”), posing as a cop, visiting John Connor’s home, where he meets – and consequently kills – foster parents Todd (Xander Berkeley) and Janelle (Jenette Goldstein), is in there. As are several other key moments.

And then we’ll be going back to moments we haven’t seen on film before – such as scenes with young Sarah and her parents.

Some have compared TERMINATOR: GENESIS to J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK reboot, however Moviehole.com says a better comparison might be BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II, meaning it will have an original plot, but will also revisit some memorable events from the original.

Does this mean something has happened in the past that will have a huge impact on future events in the films, like Sarah Connor not surviving this time? It's an interesting idea for TERMINATOR: GENESIS, and I think it could work, if any of this is true, of course.

Alan Taylor's TERMINATOR: GENESIS also stars Jai Courtney and Emilia Clarke, and will be in theaters on July 1st, 2015.

If done right..

This could be a really fucking great film. If done wrong, it can be a total disaster. First off, I love BTTF II, it's my favovrite because of the exact idea they're trying to rip off here. Now, that being said, that idea worked because they used the original footage from part 1 or reshot it to look like the original footage (because they were basically the same age). So I'm thinking to myself after reading this article, how the fuck are they going to reshoot the first two movies with different
This could be a really fucking great film. If done wrong, it can be a total disaster. First off, I love BTTF II, it's my favovrite because of the exact idea they're trying to rip off here. Now, that being said, that idea worked because they used the original footage from part 1 or reshot it to look like the original footage (because they were basically the same age). So I'm thinking to myself after reading this article, how the fuck are they going to reshoot the first two movies with different actors but keep Arnold. Not only would that just feel weird, it would confuse the shit out of people. If they go that route, they will fail. But then I went on IMDB to check the ages of these actors, and what I found was that only four were listed. Out of those four, I found most interesting was the age of the actor playing John Connor, 45. This leads me to believe that they're going the BTTF II route after all and are actually going to use the footage from the first two movies and these actors will play Future Past versions of these characters through all the back and forth time travel stuff. If I am correct, and I hope I am for the sake of the film (Big Terminator Fan), then Arnold would have to play an aging scientists who they model the T-800 after. If all of my speculation is true, we are in for one hell of a ride. Which would also mean the next two films would explore THE FUTURE WARS. If this is not their plan then all i have to say is :-p

It is so stupid to have this franchise going backwards instead of forward. Most fans want to see the future war taking place. After this movie, if they're planning a new trilogy, wouldn't the second or third movie put us basically in the same place in the franchise we're in now? So what's the point?

I'm rewatching the original right now. PLEASE DONT DO THIS. Especially with Jai Courtney. Its so apparent how rare it is to see new talent truly embody that movie star charisma. Nobody had that problem in the original Terminator.

I agree with you so much that I upvoted both of your double posts ahahah Rewatched A Good Day to Die Hard over the weekend and Jai Courtney is still terrible. Not only does he lack charisma but he's basically a black hole that sucks the charisma out of everyone around him. This dude makes Sam Worthington seem interesting ahahaha

Interesting

I hope they can find someway to address why Arnie looks older. He was able to get into amazing shape for T3, but that was 11 years ago, and I doubt he can get that same look now that he's in his mid 60's. Being a cyborg means he doesn't have to show muscle to believe he's incredibly strong, I just hope they don't try to CGI him too much like Jeff Bridges in Tron 2, or Stallone is Grudge Match. It just doesn't look right. - See more at: [link]sthash.sGuILyCC.dpuf

Another Reboot?

So this time it starts in the future, we see the characters travel back and forth in time to save John Connor and the human race. can't they finish the story and kill John Connor?

Hmmm

Interested to see if this can work. Go Arnie! Seems like The Avengers have set a bar for all the super hero and comic movies...everyone wants to go all out.

I'm confused

So, essentially, they're remaking Terminator and Terminator 2 as some sort of hybrid by mixing the two films together? This sounds horrible.

I love Arnie, but time travel will always have irritating plot holes to it. I was always saddened by the Terminator franchise being Arnie's biggest.
Here's a question: Why couldn't send back Kyle Reese with a cow or something with a pulse rifle shoved up its asshole? Wouldn't the living exosuit the terminator wore require him eat, breathe, shit, etc.?

In early development James Cameron actually wanted to show that the Terminator had to eat to support his outside appearance a.k.a skin. This was cut out of the film due to time constraints and Cameron said it made the Terminator seem less scary having to stop to eat things.

So, it's basically a remake of 'The Terminator' where the storyline we all know and love diverges and takes a trip into no doubt shitty territory? No, thanks.

I really liked Anton Yelchin's Kyle Reese and think it's a pity that he won't be able to revisit the role.

Not quite sure how a point by point retelling will pan out... Arnold is getting old. Hate to say that. it would have been interesting seeing his character adapted to an "old" role. Like, Arnold plays the aged soldier whom the T-100 was modeled after... and kicks some ass with JC as a human post Judgement Day.

Arnold IS old and barely made it under the wire for T3, barely. No matter how much you workout it's not going to
do beans for your face and that's the problem. Hope they don't try and CGI this to death...

That actually sounds like it could be pretty kick ass! Especially getting to see the T-1000 again! I love the back to the future 2 perspective. This could actually work if they do it right

Only if Arnold arrives naked.......

I'm really excited about a new stand alone trilogy but I would be dissapointed if they went shot for shot of James Cameron's version. Rewrite the whole thing to make it your own. When you go almost shot for shot on remakes it always sucks. Psycho with Vince Vuaghn is a prime example, The Thing remake was garbage.

After seeing I, Frankenstein over the weekend I'm not filled with optimism about Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese.

And if that synopsis is real, then its essentially a remake. I disagree with the BTTF II comparison, while they might be revisiting memorable events from the original it'll be with a new cast.

The plot sounds complex. So it's not exactly a reboot nor remake. It really starts to sound like Back To The Future 2. This might turn out pretty good.
