When the news broke two days ago (reported here) that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he would be back for “Terminator 6”, some Terminator fans were understandably suspicious. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a track record of optimism (sometimes against all odds) and never seems to say “no” to what the fans want to hear. We even wrote an article about it a year ago titled “TERMINATOR 6 : When Schwarzenegger talks, sometimes listen.”. Well this time, we feel fans should definitely listen.
Instead of just the usual, casual confirmation by Arnold that a film of his is still in development (offered with no indescribable proof), this time Schwarzenegger provided details about “Terminator 6” when he spoke. This is a clear indicator that Arnold is in the know with T6’s development, and that he is actively up to date as contracts are being worked out and solidified.
So how much does Arnold know about what is going on behind the scenes with “Terminator 6”? Let’s take a closer look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s exact quotes, and see exactly what he revealed:
ARNOLD IS AWARE THAT PARAMOUNT OPTED OUT OF THEIR CONTRACT WITH SKYDANCE ON TWO MORE TERMINATOR GENISYS SEQUELS
Arnold’s quote: “Just because Paramount doesn’t want to pick up the Terminator franchise, you have 15 other studios willing to do it — that doesn’t mean the Terminator franchise is finished, right?”
ARNOLD KNOWS SKYDANCE CAN MAKE T6 WITH ANOTHER STUDIO. HE SEEMS TO EVEN KNOW WHICH STUDIO, BUT ARNOLD CAN’T DISCUSS THAT YET
Arnold’s quote: “It just means they are on their way to negotiate with another studio, but I can’t give you the details of that.”
ARNOLD APPEARS AWARE THAT SKYDANCE’S DAVID ELLISON WILL BE MAKING A T6 ANNOUNCEMENT SOMETIME THIS YEAR
Arnold’s quote: “They’ll announce that.”
ARNOLD CONFIRMS JAMES CAMERON’S EXACT INVOLVEMENT WITH “TERMINATOR 6”. ORIGINALLY REPORTED AS “GODFATHERING”, CAMERON WILL TAKE ON THE ROLE OF PRODUCER, SOMETHING NEVER OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED UNTIL NOW
Arnold’s Quote: “Cameron will be producing it”
ARNOLD CONFIRMS “TERMINATOR 6” WILL HAVE A NEW DIRECTOR (RUMORED TO BE TIM MILLER)
Arnold’s quote: “There will be another director on it.”
ARNOLD CONFIRMS HE WILL BE A PART OF “TERMINATOR 6”
Arnold’s quote: “I’m looking forward to doing another Terminator movie, yes.” “I’m always looking forward to doing another Terminator, especially if the story is written well and it’s really entertains the whole world.
So this wasn’t just some fly by night confirmation, Terminator fans. This time we can clearly tell from his own words that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is actively involved in TERMINATOR 6’s development. And we believe him.
We’ll be back.
