Terminator Genisys is suppose to be the reboot that will help bring the Terminator franchise back to greatness. The film isn’t due for release until July, but like with almost every franchise film, there is already talk of a sequel being in the works. And talks of more movies were started by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.
Schwarzenegger said he expects to return to start shooting a sequel to Terminator Genisys next year. Hit the jump for more.
The actor spoke to the fan site The Arnold Fans about the future installments. Paramount has actually marked their calendars already for these sequels with Terminator 6 set for a 2017 release, and Terminator 7 due out in 2018. When asked about filming Terminator 6, Schwarzenegger said,
“Yes, of course, next year.”
Maybe they will shoot the film, or maybe the actor is just pandering to a site that is dedicated to him; whatever the case may be, we won’t know if a sequel is actually confirmed until we see the box office numbers for Terminator Genisys. And it seems like Schwarzenegger spilled a huge spoiler if the film does well. For he could either survive to see one or have another Terminator model sent back in time, at which point the actor will be 69 by the time the Terminator 7 is released. So is it time to discontinue the Terminator model and move onto something that runs more efficiently? Maybe. Schwarzenegger is the face of the franchise after all, so setting him aside while he is still alive may not be the best decision.
Terminator: Genisys hits theaters in the U.S. on July 1, 2015.
