James Cameron teases Arnold playing a Human in “TERMINATOR 6”!

In promotion of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D debuting in theaters around the world this August 25th, the creator of the Terminator franchise, James Cameron, did a Facebook Live Q&A session today where Cameron got to answer questions asked by Terminator fans across the world.  One of these questions dealt with the new upcoming Terminator Trilogy Cameron is developing with Skydance and inquired if Cameron ever considered Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a human.

This is what James Cameron had to say:

CAMERON: “Yeah, you got to ask yourself why do they make these Terminators look and sound like Arnold. There has to be a reason. And yeah, it has passed, it flashed through my mind that there should be a kind of a prototype. First of all there has to have been a guy that the DNA was harvested from that the, they grew the, the organic outer layer of the Terminator from, and that presumably was a real person at some point.

“Now the question is did that person have some meaning, some specific special meaning to Skynet, why choose that one. Or was it just that you know there was like a whole rack of identical Terminators, and the ones that happened to be the Arnold model happen to be closest to the door going out to the time displacement center, in there a whole bunch of them look different.

“Umm, you know I’ve, I’ve asked myself these questions but it’s never been resolved, so stay tuned. You know we’re talking pretty seriously now about doing some new Terminator films, possibly a Trilogy, and you’ll just have to see what what surfaces in those.”

Lets read this quote again: “Umm, you know I’ve, I’ve asked myself these questions but it’s never been resolved, so stay tuned.”  Stay tuned? Based on James Cameron’s response, while not outright confirmed, it really seems that having Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a human (and how Arnold’s DNA was selected for a Terminator model) is exactly what they plan on exploring in the upcoming Terminator 6, 7 and 8!

This is very exciting news!

We’ll be back!

  1. If only he could tie in the Predator and Terminator franchises by having Dutch get selected after his encounter with the Predator as a model for the Terminator.


  2. I think one reason why first two Terminator movies are so great because there are only hints about the future. And when you watching the movie you can imagine yourself what there might be but never can be sure. But I’m sure if James Cameron make the movie it’s going to be very good!
