Original Terminator Cast Coming Back, Unless Arnold Too Busy Crying Macho Instead
Right now we know thereís a plan out there, with Arnold attached to it, to make another Terminator movie. Just exactly what form that movie will take is still pretty much up in the air, but thereís plenty of rumor mill stuff floating around in the space left by the lack of official information. Hereís a quick breakdown of just some of it.
First thereís the confusing news that even though we know Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to Terminator thereís this story which says that itís not his next project. Instead heís doing something called Cry Macho and itís based on a serious book which when adapted into a movie will actually require him to act. Heíd play an aging horse trainer put out to pasture, ends up broke, and then agrees to kidnap an 11 year-old for cash. Itís not exactly John Wayne doing The Quiet Man, but for Arnold itís about as close as he gets.
The upshot is that if heís doing this weepy kidnapping movie, itís probably going to be awhile before they get around to Terminator, assuming the Austrian Oak has a significant role in that film and that itís not just some glorified cameo. At least his next movie isnít that horrible Governator idea I guess. If Cry Macho keeps him away from that I can wait for Terminator
Terminator 5 might be worth waiting for, especially if theyíre bringing the entire original cast back as rumored by Kino Katey regular Da7e over at Latino Review. He says that the movie involves time travel back to the present day, so none of that future freedom fighters stuff we got with Christian Bale, and that at the least weíd see Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor and maybe Michael Biehn back as Kyle Reese too.
Except, unfortunately, Michael Biehn hasnít been asked. He tells JoBlo "I donít know anything about it." Thatís not as bad as it sounds. This whole Terminator 5 thing is still very early days, they probably havenít gotten around to casting anyone except Arnold, even if their intention is to try and bring the original cast back. Wait and see.
