Arnold Schwarzenegger has given Hollywood talent agency CAA the nod to discuss a potential new Terminator film with producers, according to EW, but until Schwarzenegger sees a script, he won’t fully commit to it.
Director Justin Lin – who helmed Fast Five – is attached to direct the new Terminator film, which is currently looking for a writer.
The most recent film in the iconic sci-fi franchise, 2009’s Terminator Salvation, grossed $371 million worldwide, but did not star Schwarzenegger – although his computer-generated likeness did make a cameo during the film’s climax. The former California governor’s last starring role was in 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
EW reported exclusively last month that Schwarzenegger’s first post-political gig would be the animated series The Governator, a play off of the title combining “governor” and “Terminator” that became synonymous with his tenure running California’s government.
