After Arnold Schwarzenegger stepped down from his post as California Governor, he announced that he planned to return to acting. Then he tweeted that he told his agents to look for a new acting role for him. Now speculation is swirling that his first post-government acting role may be in the fourth ‘Terminator’ sequel, www.reelzchannel.com is reporting.
The news comes after Schwarzenegger made his unofficial return to acting last summer with his cameo appearance in the hit action movie ‘The Expendables.’ He expressed interested in another ‘Terminator’ movie after Universal Pictures announced it began looking for a new project for ‘Fast Five’ director Justin Lin. The studio is looking to revive the ‘Terminator’ franchise with Lin on board to helm, and ‘Wanted’ screenwriter Chris Morgan attached to pen the script.
After Schwarzenegger was seen in a brief cameo in the fourth ‘Terminator’ movie, 2009’s ‘Salvation,’ which opened to mixed reviews, the franchise’s rights holder Halcyon put the series rights up for sale. But when Pacificor picked up the rights to the franchise in February 2010, the series lay dormant until Schwarzenegger expressed interest in returning.
