Arnold Schwarzenegger Shares Production Info About TERMINATOR: DARK FATE; Says Footage 'Looks Great'

Terminator: Dark Fate will be released in late 2019. In a new interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about working with James Cameron & Tim Miller, the film's production & budget, and footage he has seen.

The sixth entry in the Terminator franchise is currently going by the title Terminator: Dark Fate and will ignore all the films that came after the universally acclaimed Terminator 2: Judgement Day.  It will see the return of franchise icons Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, along with legendary filmmaker James Cameron who is serving as a producer alongside director Tim Miller (Deadpool). 

Speaking with The Arnold Fans at the Arnold Sports Festival, Arnold Schwarzenegger provided an update on Dark Fate. While the legendary actor did say he was reluctant to reveal much about the film itself, especially since the studio is watching, he did divulge that they have "successfully completed filming of it in Budapest," for which he spent three months in the city.

Asked about working with Tim Miller, Arnold described the director as "very, very talented" and well organized and "a pleasure to work with," saying he can see why Deadpool was so successful. He said Miller is "an expert with visual effects and special effects and with stunts" and was very comfortable coming into a veteran franchise and taking command of all the actors, young and old.

Arnold also talked about the dynamic between Miller and James Cameron, saying that Dark Fate is in good hands with those two. He described Cameron as being heavily involved in the movie, helping guide creative decisions to make sure that everything was to his liking since Terminator is ultimately his baby.

It was a very interesting film to do with Tim, the dynamic, between him and with Jim Cameron producing. So Jim Cameron is right now directing Avatar films so he’s taken on this enormous challenge and he’s very busy with that BUT he’s a control freak and as you know, Terminator is kind of his baby so he does get involved in the filming so there were interesting discussions about which direction to go with a certain scene or how the dialogue should finish or what the certain look should be of an individual and all that stuff so there was a big collaboration between Jim and Tim Miller. I feel it was in good hands with both of them.

Finally, Schwarzenegger said that Dark Fate has a budget that is "somewhere between 160 million and 200 million dollars," dependent on visual effects which are currently being worked on. However, while the movie isn't finished yet, he did reveal that he has seen some footage and described it as terrific and exciting: "I’ve seen 15 minutes and it looked great and I was very excited about it.”
