It is official, Arnold is back! I have been saying from the beginning that Terminator Salvation just wouldn’t be the same without Arnold, and finally, we have a solid scoop that he WILL be making an appearance in the film.
Jon was kind enough to send me this story from our friends at TheArnoldFans.com.
TheArnoldFans: Let’s talk Arnold. What’s the latest with the ILM footage. How does the young CG Arnold look?
McG: Ah, it looks reeeeeaal good. (McG confesses and sounds totally impressed and proud at last). Arnold just saw the movie two nights ago.
That’s right Arnold fans, you heard it; because Arnold liked very much what he saw with Terminator Salvation and his CG likeness, he scheduled a call-back for the director. Arnold wants to do business!
McG: I’m going to see him AGAIN shortly and we’re going to discuss what he wants to do and to what degree.
TheArnoldFans: And he’ll possibly record more dialogue?
Be sure to head over to TheArnoldFans.com to read the full dialogue but from this snippet I think it safe to say that we WILL be seeing Arnold return in Terminator Salvation.
So that being said, I think it is safe to say that this will indeed be a Terminator film. I don’t know why but this has completely changed my view of Terminator Salvation. To me the film was going to be pointless without “The Terminator.” Sure, it probably will just be a quick cameo or something, but meaningful nonetheless.
Most of us at the MovieGuys are kind of shocked at how little this story has been covered. Perhaps no one cares about Arnold anymore, nor perhaps they have lost all hope with T4. There is only one way to find out! Tell us what you think! Are you glad Arnold is back? Do you care at all? Or are you just excited there is another terminator?
I would also like to give a big thanks again to TheArnoldFans.com for sharing this news.
