Arnold Schwarzenegger's Role In James Cameron's TERMINATOR 6 Has Been Revealed

Chances are Terminator Genisys killed your interest in the franchise but James Cameron is hoping to keep the franchise alive and has now revealed a very unexpected role for Arnold Schwarzenegger...

The Terminator franchise has fallen on hard times with the last three instalments a pale imitation of what came before them. Despite that, creator James Cameron - who remains hard at work on another four Avatar movies - is hoping to produce a sixth instalment which will see Deadpool director Tim Miller take the helm of the project. Could it redeem the series? That obviously remains to be seen.

Now, the filmmaker has revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger is part of his plans for what comes next and his intention is for this next movie to explore why the T-800 looks the way he does. Okay then.

"Yeah, you got to ask yourself, ‘Why did they make these characters look and sound like Arnold? There has to be a reason. So yeah, it has flashed through my mind that there has to have been a prototype. There has to have been a guy who’s DNA was harvested from – that they grew the organic outer layer that they grew the Terminator from…and that presumably was a real person at some point. Now, the question is, did that person have some sort of meaning to Skynet on WHY they chose that one (Arnold)? Or was it like a whole rack of Terminators and the one that happened to be the Arnold model just happened to be closest to the door going out to the time displacement center and all the others looked different? I’ve asked myself these questions but it’s never been resolved…so stay tuned!"

This is something which was first addressed in a deleted scene from Terminator 3 but it doesn't exactly sound like the most exciting basis for a movie. Cameron praised Terminator Genisys - a movie which tried and failed to reboot the timeline - so whether his vision can still be trusted is hard to say, especially when it's hard to say if there's really any point to a prequel like this actually existing. 

Are you guys excited to learn why the T-800 looks like Arnie? Will CGI be used to make him look younger or could this, in fact, be a sequel to the originals? We'll likely find out in the next few years!
