Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back in 'Terminator 5'
He said he'd be back.
Arnold Schwarzenegger -- who starred as a futuristic cyborg in the first three "Terminator" films -- is returning to the role for the previously announced "Terminator 5."
Although he was previously rumored to be playing a human role, the former California governor confirmed his imminent return as the titular cyborg to fan site The Arnold Fans.
"I'm very happy that the studios want me to be in 'Terminator 5' and to star as the Terminator," he revealed, adding that the sequel will start shooting in January.
Schwarzenegger played the title role in James Cameron's 1984 "The Terminator, as well as 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" and 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." He sat out the most recent film, "Terminator Salvation."
After being shuffled around Hollywood, the rights to the franchise finally landed at Annapurna Pictures, who have yet to announce a director for the film, although "Fast & Furious 6" helmer had once been attached to the project.
In the same interview, Schwarzenegger also made some further claims about even more belated sequels. "I'm also going to do 'King Conan' - to play that role and also to do another 'Twins' movie. So I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I'm looking forward to doing those films."
