Alan Taylor is set to begin filming Terminator: Genesis at the end of April in New Orleans which will see Arnold Schwarzenegger return as the Terminator.
Schwarzenegger gives an update to the Collider comparing Terminator: Genesis to T2.
Terminator is going to have the exact same feel. The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, “Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?”
Schwarzenegger also let it be known that the title of the movie could change and is happy about doing the upcoming Legend of Conan as well.
And 34 or 35 years later, after doing Conan, they’ve come back and said that they want me to play Conan. Not to be one of the villains in Conan, like the usually do, but to play Conan.
It’s great because I’ve stayed in physical shape, and they see me in different movies and on social media and with all the stuff that I do. I’m still on the cover of the muscle magazines. So, they say, “We can still have this guy fight with a sword for 10 hours a day, do horseback riding, and all of these things. We can have him star in Conan.” It’s really unusual. That’s never, ever happened, that I’m aware of, in the history of these kinds of things, where you can lead a franchise like that and be the star, at this age. That just shows you that, if you have the attitude of a young person and you work like a young person and you keep your body in shape, and if you believe that you can do it, then you can actually make other people also believe that you can do it.
"Terminator Genesis" has a July 1, 2015 release starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese.
