It’s no secret that since stepping down as California’s governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger is looking to get back into acting.
The Austrian Oak has apparently been approached with potential sequels to his biggest hits, including The Terminator , Predator and The Running Man , but he hasn’t signed on for anything yet.
Tom Arnold has recently been talking up a True Lies 2 script that’s said to be doing the rounds, and Entertainment Weekly (via ComingSoon) recently took the opportunity to quiz Arnie about a follow-up.
On a potential TS2 , he said: “The idea of a True Lies sequel has been around since the early 2000s, but then 9/11 happened and we didn’t do it because it had to do with a terrorist attack.
“A lot of terrorist-type scripts were cancelled back then, but now they are emerging again because there hasn’t been a terrorist attack in the last 10 years.
“Then, of course, there’s dialogue about me getting back into the Terminator thing. But you know, I’ve been out of office only two months now.
“I couldn’t be thinking about doing Terminator 16 while I was still governor.”
So, it’s pretty noncommittal from Arnie on that front, though when asked if he’d be reteaming with James Cameron for a future film, he tantalisingly responded: “Could be.”
Avatar 2 , anyone?
