Good news: Schwarzenegger returning as “The Terminator” for some reason

posted at 3:52 pm on June 14, 2013 by

In this one, he returns from the future to destroy mankind by getting elected and then presiding over his jurisdiction’s slow deterioration.

“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,” says the former Governator. “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.”

Is he joking, or is he actually planning to reprise every famous role he’s ever played? Buckle up, America — “Kindergarten Cop 2″ can’t be far behind.

It’s a “too-mah”, he must have a “too-mah”!

M240H on June 14, 2013 at 3:58 PM

That has to be a joke. No sane person EVER, EVER would consider making another “Twins” movie.

Oh wait, this is Hollywood, the land of no ideas. Of course he’s serious.

He’s been a low paid public servant for a decade now. Plus the divorce probably hit his financials pretty hard.

He’s got to make money while he’s still viable.

Can we never, ever hear about how Arnold is a conservative ever again.

He was barely a Republican, and the worst kind of Republican stereotype when he was, much less a conservative.

Kensington on June 14, 2013 at 4:14 PM

I guess He’ll Be Back.

The Rogue Tomato on June 14, 2013 at 4:18 PM

“Kindergarten Cop 2″ can’t be far behind.

Or another sequel to Predator…. what are we up to, 3 or 4 on that one?

UltimateBob on June 14, 2013 at 4:19 PM

I could see a King Conan movie with an aging King Conan. The other stuff is just absurd.

Fenris on June 14, 2013 at 4:21 PM

Arnold as an old, broken down Terminator on it’s last legs.

I can see that.

Hey! That stategy is working for Stallone; didn’t it?

At least for the last 20 years, it has.

Capt_Nemo on June 14, 2013 at 4:29 PM

There’s a big difference IMHO between Stallone and Ah-nold. Stallone still looks scary huge and in shape – Ah-nold is the King of former lifter manboobs. While not a fan of the Expendables franchise, the last Rambo and the last Rocky were very good – ROcky more so than Rambo. Rocky Balboa has a couple of my favorite movie speeches in it.

I saw Last Stand with Arnie and it was a decent popcorn movie. But Arnold just seems so lumbering and slow that it’s gonna be hard for him to be believable in an action role.

Bruce Willis keeps cranking out good movies as well. Not all of them, to be sure, but Live free or Die Hard was good and Red was great. I’ve got high hopes for Red 2 and I’ll see the latest Die Hard tonight.

Free Indeed on June 14, 2013 at 4:43 PM

Hey, I’m looking forward to King Conan and Twins was a funny movie.

And, come one, admit it: You want to see an older, wiser Schwarzenegger saying “Who is your Daddy and what does he do?”

BigGator5 on June 14, 2013 at 4:47 PM

Please God whatever happens don’t make a sequel to Junior.

Dack Thrombosis on June 14, 2013 at 5:00 PM

“I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator…”

Is this the one where the Terminator knocks up its maid, grants clemency to murderers (if they happen to be the sons of political cronies), and rolls over for the public employee unions while they bankrupt the state? Awesome!

Hayabusa on June 14, 2013 at 5:07 PM

Phffft. Arnold.

Our new action hero will be O’Bambi

Ugly on June 14, 2013 at 5:27 PM

I want to see a Terminator where, in a far future where Skynet has exterminated all humans, it grows up enough to regret it, and sends a Terminator leapfrogging back in time to stop itself.
Till then, not interested.

I’ll enjoy them all. They’re entertaining. He’s a guy that knows how to give people a fun movie.

That is one awesome idea. You should write that script and put good conservative themes in it.

dogsoldier on June 14, 2013 at 6:40 PM

Maria…I can’t self-terminate….get to da choppahs now!

BobMbx on June 14, 2013 at 6:43 PM

Wait….what happened to “Terminator 4″? Did I miss one?

BobMbx on June 14, 2013 at 6:44 PM

So apparently the machines couldn’t figure out how to stop their cyborgs from aging and losing all their synthetic muscle.

I wish. Anyone else is free to use the idea, though.

“Ah’llll be back… as soon as I find my dentures.”

viking01 on June 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM

His movies were always only so-so. The reboots can’t possibly be better.

rickv404 on June 14, 2013 at 7:32 PM

The plot sounds like the Obama admin.

OldEnglish on June 14, 2013 at 7:50 PM

All these geezer actors have had too many face lifts — and it shows. Did his stupid wife ever take him back?

Blake on June 14, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Detroit needs help

ninjapirate on June 14, 2013 at 8:27 PM

King Conan could be interesting if they show him as the aged vanquisher.

But Terminator? Robots don’t get old and fat.

ButterflyDragon on June 14, 2013 at 9:48 PM

He’s currently in Australia for some reason, giving a series of high-priced motivational speeches to mostly-empty auditoriums. He even came to Perth. That was kind of an “It’s Come To This?” moment for people who remembered when he used to Be someone.

via Tim Blair:

Performing the only Sydney date of a nation-wide speaking tour, Mr Schwarzenegger took to the stage half an hour late for the 21st Century Education summit to roaring applause to an auditorium around one-third full.

Of course, maybe his… uh… his appeal is just becoming more selective.

s_dog on June 14, 2013 at 11:10 PM

Terminator G for geriatric.

Sherman1864 on June 15, 2013 at 3:28 AM

As the terminator, he failed to kill Sarah Conner. As governor, he did manage to terminate the economy and any myth that he was a Republican.

So, he should make a movie about his success as governor.

Or Twins 2.

smoothsailing on June 15, 2013 at 8:10 AM

WD40 should sign him, as an aging terminator, to an endorsement.

Flange on June 15, 2013 at 8:17 AM

Hey, the man’s working. Go Ahnode!

ROCnPhilly on June 15, 2013 at 9:05 AM

He’s 65 years old. Skynet is not going to make a 65 year old Terminator. This is just dumb.

Congessional infiltration model to make sure gun confiscation is passed and implemented through Obamacare.

ROCnPhilly on June 15, 2013 at 9:48 AM

Arnold is sent back in a mission to destroy Hollywood which John Conner uses in the future to embarrass the hell out of Skynet’s feeble and decrepit new Terminator and win the war against the machines.

Dusty on June 15, 2013 at 10:09 AM

Not sure if you can state that schwarzenegger was a disaster. In fact , there are quite a few bigger disasters around.

Kalifornia IS a disaster, with or without him and likely if they had not recalled that davis guy it would be on par with detroit right now.
.
Let him do his terminator gig. Whatever you say, a box office success is a box office success.

Batman tried to destroy the factory that built the Terminator sent back in the original.

LoganSix on June 15, 2013 at 12:24 PM

A 65 year old T-100 with degenerative disease of the knees can’t get Medicare to pay for his joint replacement. “I’ll be back after you repeal Obamacare!”

airway2000 on June 16, 2013 at 1:20 AM

My favorite quote about actors and money (from wikipedia):

Of “Jaws: The Revenge”, Caine famously said “I have never seen the film, but by all accounts it was terrible. However I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.”

JimC on June 16, 2013 at 2:11 AM

So once again Arnold gets to play a robot from the future who speaks English with a German accent. At least he won’t have to stretch his acting chops.
