Arnold Schwarzenegger Returning To The ‘Terminator’ Franchise
If you thought the whole Terminator franchise was done with or if you thought you would never see Arnold Schwarzenegger in another Terminator film even if there was one, you are sorely mistaken. Turns out, Arnold has himself confirmed the fact that he is going to be seen in the new Terminator film which is being developed by David Ellison. This news hasn’t been officially confirmed though. Many would question the whole idea behind casting Arnold in a new Terminator film if he is eventually chosen for the film.
The way his recent film The Last Stand is performing at the US box-office, the makers of the new Terminator film might really have to give a serious thought to whether it would be a good idea to take him. There is no denying the fact that Arnold’s name is synonymous with the Terminator franchise, but he is already quite old and even looks really old in his recent film, so even if he is taken for the new film he would have to be given an age appropriate role. It has to also be conceded that he is no more a huge box-office draw that he used to be, although in recent times, oldies like Stallone and Liam Neeson have proven that even old guys can still kick some ass at the box-office.

Probably the present generation can’t relate to him anymore and the generation that used to love him has also outgrown him. Guys like Stallone and Liam Neeson are still liked by the audiences probably because they are pretty decent actors unlike Arnold, who has never really been very strong in the acting department.
Coming back to the new Terminator film, it has been reported that “Avatar” co-producer Laeta Kalogridis and “Drive Angry” scribe Patrick Lussier will team for the screenplay. It hasn’t been revealed if this new film will again focus on the Connor family. For those unaware, Schwarzenegger starred as the killer cyborg in James Cameron’s 1984 The Terminator, before being reprogrammed for good in the 1991 Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Cameron exited the series, and it took more than a decade for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) to come out. Schwarzenegger then sat out 2009′s Terminator Salvation, possibly because he was too busy playing the politician at that point and didn’t have time for films.
