Arnold Schwarzenegger planning sequels for Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, Twins
Arnold Schwarzenegger is clearly nuts. The former governor of California, who relaunched his acting career in The Last Stand, now has plans to appear in sequels to The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian and Twins.
First up, The Terminator. This will be the FIFTH movie in the franchise if you're keeping track.
"They're writing right now Terminator 5," Arnold told a British newspaper in a webchat, according to this friendly blog. "There have been some writers on it for the last year-and-a-half and they could not pull it off. We have told them over and over that they are going in the wrong direction, now they've finally got rid of those writers and they've got new really quality writers. Now they're going in the right direction. I think this year the script will be finished and we will be able to go into pre-production."
Schwarzenegger is 65 years old. The only appropriate role for him in a Terminator movie is maybe one of the skeletons that litter the ground in the barren future world. Aww, I kid. He still looks pretty good. And robots age, right?
As for Conan and Twins, well, that feels more like wishful thinking, but Arnold claims they're in the works too. In fact, Twins will be called Triplets and feature Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy. That sounds like a good idea -- that's 25 years too old. Why not add a Running Man sequel to the mix? Maybe Schwarzenegger can take over the role of the late Richard Dawson. That I'd buy a ticket for.
