Yes, another Terminator film is in the works, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to reprise his role as the robotic killing machine from the future.
While details are still scarce, Terminator 5 will begin shooting in early 2014.
“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,” Schwarzenegger recently confirms.
No director has officially been named, but Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) is said to be in the running.
The actor/politician starred in the first three Terminator films, which were directed by James Cameron. All together, they grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The fourth installment, Terminator Salvation, starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington and featured a computer-generated Schwarzenegger — it racked in $371 million globally.
In addition to The Terminator, Schwarzenegger also said he’s interested in Conan and Twins sequels.
