Much like the cybernetic creations themselves, the Terminator franchise refuses to die, and another sequel is on the horizon. The rights to the iconic franchise revert to James Cameron in 2019 and Cameron is working on a new sequel with Deadpool director Tim Miller.
In a recent interview with Screen Daily, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he's been talking with Cameron about the sequel and we can expect Arnie to be back once again.
"It is back! It is moving forward. He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie."
The previous attempt to revive the franchise was 2015's Terminator Genisys, and it wasn't well received despite grossing $440 million worldwide. Playing out like a greatest hits album with a couple of terrible new songs added at the end, Terminator Genisys was fun, but it was a hollow experience. I can't say I'm hugely excited to see another Terminator sequel, even with James Cameron's involvement. However, if Cameron and Miller can find a way to wrap the whole story arc up for good, then that might be something worth watching.
Arnold Schwarzenegger also revealed that the script for the long-mooted Twins sequel (Triplets) is currently being written, and he's been having talks with Netflix about a possible collaboration. If you truly want to see Arnold Schwarzenegger do something you've never seen before, I would highly recommend you seek out his new movie Aftermath. Schwarzenegger acts his hulking heart out in a thriller from producer Darren Aronofsky.
James Cameron recently revealed the official release dates for all four Avatar sequels with the first one set to arrive December 18, 2020.
