Action movie legend Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently promoting his latest film Killing Gunther, an action comedy film directed by and starring Taran Killam. While promoting the movie the former Mr. Universe has been quizzed about his next movie, the long-awaited 'true-sequel' to 1991's super-sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Speaking to Metro US Schwarzenegger spoke about director Tim Miller, and his desire to work with the director following the success of Deadpool...

"It's great when you see a guy like Tim, who is a really talented director that worked on 'Deadpool', and when he works together with Cameron – they have worked together in visual effects in the past – so they have a great combination. Cameron is really into it, he’s passionate about it, he loves the character, loves me being in it, and wants me to continue on as the T-800 model and all that stuff. It is an honor to be asked back. I think it is going to be fantastic. Both of them are technology experts, visual effects experts, and I think they'll get really great performances out of that."

"I have been talking to Tim Miller about doing a movie ever since 'Deadpool' came out. So we have talked about it, we have met several times. He is a terrific guy. He's not a primadonna. He’s just down to earth, easy to work with, makes suggestions. He’s fantastic. He’s just very secure with himself. He’s got a great relationship with Cameron. And Cameron respects him, and we all have the highest respect for Cameron."

Arnold also spoke to Business Insider UK about returning to play the iconic role of the T-800 Terminator, and the fallout regarding Terminator Genisys...

"I love the character. I think the T-800 model is a really interesting character that was developed with a tremendous ability. He's a machine, can be destructive, can do things human being can’t do, but at the same time when newer technology comes along the character suddenly is vulnerable and that makes him even more interesting. That's why it plays well in the past movies. I think [James] Cameron and [upcoming Terminator movie director] Tim [Miller] came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800, but make the movie a whole new movie. I think the character was stuck in the future and was more like an ordinary guy who suddenly gets activated again."

"Remember, all movies, except the one when I was governor so I wasn't in it, "Terminator" 3 and 5 made over $400 million worldwide, so those are huge grosses. We wish we had made $700 million or $800 million, but I think the key thing now is not to get stuck with the same timeline. I think what they are doing now with this one is basically to just take a few very basic characters, like Linda Hamilton’s character and my character, and dismiss everything else. Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and the other characters. It's hard to come up with new ideas when you stay within that framework. And I think this time they are going to take the freedom of opening up and not tying themselves down to the timelines and the other characters."

Regarding Arnold's statement above where he claims that his character is more like an 'Ordinary guy' popular fan site, The Terminator Fans have written a heartfelt letter with concerns about Arnold's statement. While we understand that James Cameron and Miller intend to make the new movie relevant to today's technologically dependent world and that with Arnold being the anchor of the franchise they are keen to cast him in the movie, we do second The Terminator Fans concerns that Arnold should be portraying a character akin to that which made the property so successful, and not a humanized aging Terminator. 

Additionally, according to Omega Underground, the new Terminator movie will begin filming in March 2018 in Budapest, Hungary, and Spain. If true, then it is likely that these locations may be used to represent the future war we glimpsed in James Cameron's first two Terminator movies.
