Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms His Terminator 5 Role, Names January Start

Following up on yesterday’s news regarding an early 2014 production start on Terminator 5, has managed to get their hands on even more information from Arnold Schwarzenegger regarding his involvement with the franchise sequel.

“I’m very happy that the studios want me to be in ‘Terminator 5’ and to star as the Terminator,” he says, “…we start shooting in January and I’m also going to do ‘King Conan’. To play that role and also to do another ‘Twins’ movie. I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I’m looking forward to doing those films.”

Arnold’s specific role in Terminator 5 has been one of some debate. Many fans have suggested that, because of his age, he might be playing a human character instead of the actual Terminator.

The news comes on the heels of word that the franchise will be moving to Paramount Pictures. As reported earlier this year, Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are teaming up to script the next installment. Lussier directed Drive Angry and My Bloody Valentine 3D while Kalogridis penned Shutter Island and did some script work on James Cameron’s Avatar.
