Well, he said that he’d be back.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will reclaim his iconic role as The Terminator in a new film to be directed by “Fast Five” helmer Justin Lin, Deadline reports. Hollywood agency CAA is shopping the rights to the film on behalf of a hedge fund that bought them in a bankruptcy auction last year. The new round of rights shopping should solicit bids from major Hollywood studios.
Schwarzenegger rocketed to movie superstardom after starring in the original, 1984 “Terminator” film, which was directed by James Cameron. Playing a cyborg sent from the post-apocalyptic year 2029 to kill Sarah Connor, the future mother of resistance leader John Connor, the Austrian body builder helped define the action genre of the 1980s.
