Arnold Schwarzenegger Set To Rejoin ‘Terminator’ Franchise With ‘Fast And Furious’ Director Justin Lin

Since Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s run as governor of California came to a close, he’s been looking at various options for his official re-entrance into the acting game. Yes, he did make a cameo in The Expendables, but there were many restrictions to what he could do. Now the former biggest action star in the universe is free to jump back in wherever his soon-to-be 64-year-old body will allow him.

Whispers about what his next move would be swirled, with numerous projects as possible choices for Schwarzenegger were mentioned, including one rumor that he may be finally re-teaming with James Cameron and Tom Arnold for True Lies 2. Now it appears he might just be jumping back into his most famous of roles…as a Terminator.

It’s being reported that Schwarzenegger is now attached as the star in a “rights package” for the Terminator franchise, which is being shopped around as you read this with places like Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures, CBS Films, and Lionsgate Entertainment all interested.

Justin Lin, director of films like Better Luck Tomorrow, Annapolis, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, and Fast Five, is currently attached to the package being shopped as the director, and no screenwriter has been brought in yet.

Personally, I don’t know how this works given Schwarzenegger’s age; he might look just as digital as he did in Terminator Salvation when they get him at the look they’d need to sell him as the same Terminator he last played eight years ago.

My vote is still for True Lies 2; I can’t think of a better return to acting for Arnie than that. What do you think — are you ready for yet another Terminator already or do you want to see something else?

  1. True Lies 2 no doubt. Let the Terminator Franchise go. it came full circle in “Salvation” the story is complete for him. Unless they decide to show John Conner get killed by him after he liberated the world from Termies.
