Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirmed for ‘Terminator 5′

If they have Arnold playing a T-800 again it's going to be a huge mistake.

He must acknowledge that he is, by the time this movie is done, 70 years old.

Have him play the human template the T-800 is based on. Have him maybe be a designer of it. Something like that. Let him be a human, a former special forces guy, but a man. Not a machine.

Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirmed for ‘Terminator 5′

I'm pretty sure all the fretting over him playing a Terminator is without merit. For all we like to slag off Hollywood and lament its lack of originality and good ideas, I'm pretty sure even they're not stupid enough to think a 70-year-old Terminator is going to fly with anyone.

I can't believe no one's thought of that so far!

The final scene in the whole film should be the resistance activating the time machine and sending Kyle back. After that: fade out.

On the other hand... a Terminator's flesh hull was supposed to get old, too. It's a machine underneath, right?

I don't recall them ever saying specifically that the flesh would age, just that it would sweat, bleed, heal minor wounds...etc. I suppose it's possible though.

Still think it would make more sense to have him as the basis for the design. Maybe a captured resistance hero that they try and replace to subvert the resistance from within, and just end up keeping the template for further models.

Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirmed for ‘Terminator 5′

What we saw of the Terminators in action their skin wouldn't last long enough to get old.

And I doubt a T800 is suitable for a multi-decade long deep undercover mission.

However: Damn! He really is coming back!

http://screenrant.com/arnold-schwarz...-terminator-5/

Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) are currently putting together a Terminator 5 script for Ellison, nearly two years after the budding Hollywood power player purchased the Terminator franchise rights. Some of our readers have speculated that the plan is for T5 to return the series to its roots, by resurrecting the format of James Cameron’s original movie – which combines slasher tropes with sci-fi pop action – and moving away from the mythos building that culminated in Terminator Salvation (similar to how Riddick is taking the Vin Diesel franchise back to its Pitch Black origin, after Chronicles of Riddick). That would explain the hiring of a writing duo like Kalogridis and Lussier, who have complimentary backgrounds in the sci-fi and horror genre. Schwarzenegger – attending a London junket for The Last Stand - confirmed that he’s set to appear in Terminator 5 (via Bleeding Cool). Obviously, the screen icon is no longer convincing as the ageless T-800; though, if the story introduces Arnold as, say, a crusty fighter in the war against Skynet – one who the machines view as a fitting model for their new line of robots – his presence might avoid becoming a burden (or feeling shoehorned in). Not to mention, it could allow overriding (or just ignoring) of events in Salvation, which is something Justin Lin hinted at doing back when he was directing.
Going back to it's roots is great but the man is over 60 years old...
He'd be pushing 70, I don't want to see a 70 year old terminator.
You know, if Skynet were smart, wouldn't they want the Terminators to look old and nonthreatening? Easier to sneak up on John Connor that way.

In any event, I think this article could have easily been titled "Arnold's comeback movie bombed so he grabs some easy cash."
