Schwarzenegger says he will be a cyborg, not a human, in Terminator 5
On the heels of the news that TERMINATOR 5 may be heading to Paramount to begin filming in 2014 comes the latest news on the character Arnold Schwarzenegger will play in the latest sequel to the James Cameron classic. While Schwarzenegger has appeared in all four movies so far, his cameo in TERMINATOR: SALVATION was more of a CGI trick instead of an actual appearance. Speculation has been that Schwarzenegger will be playing a human character who serves as the model for the T-800 from the original film, but the man himself set the record straight in an interview with The Arnold Fans:
"In fact, I'm very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator, which we start shooting in January and I'm also going to do King Conan - to play that role and also to do another Twins movie. So I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I'm looking forward to doing those films."
The explanation for why a cyborg ages may finally be answered in TERMINATOR 5! They explained it away in T2 by saying he was a different model of robot, but it remains to be seen how TERMINATOR 5 will even fit into the grand scheme of the entire franchise. It is good to know Schwarzenegger is back in the spotlight for this film, but I will have to know more about the story before I trust in a James Cameron-free TERMINATOR movie.
Schwarzenegger says TERMINATOR 5 begins filming January 2014, so expect more news soon.
