Schwarzenegger's back as Terminator
Wednesday 27 April 2011
Since Arnold Schwarzenegger left his role as governor of California in January, he returned to Hollywood and now plans to resurrect his signature role as The Terminator in the successful sci-fi franchise, it was announced on April 26 by Deadline.
Schwarzenegger has released a Terminator film every decade: the original in 1984 directed by James Cameron, the sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 1991, and then 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
The fourth installment will feature the politician/actor and will be directed by Justin Lin of the current hit Fast Five from the "Fast & Furious" film series.
In 2009, the director McG made Terminator Salvation starring Sam Worthington ( Avatar) as the cyborg and Christian Bale as John Connor.
Schwarzenegger last appeared in a cameo in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables and recently announced the development of his superhero cartoon series called The Governator, based on his life as body builder and politician.
