He’s gone from Terminator to Governator — I mean, Governor — back to Terminator again. That’s right, Arnold Schwarzenegger is working on the fifth Terminator installment. And that’s not all: the actor confirms that the long-rumored Conan the Barbarian and Twins sequels are indeed in the works.
Schwarzenegger has slowly been getting back into the acting world since he left office in 2011. He had an expanded cameo in Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 2 and starred as a small-town sheriff who takes down a drug lord in The Last Stand. They weren’t Oscar contenders, but they were the exciting action flicks fans have come to love Schwarzenegger for, and now they’ll will get to see him take on some old fan-favorite roles.
“There are three projects being written that involve me,” Schwarzenegger told The Guardian. “One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there’s the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets. We’ll all look quite different in that. The third triplet is Eddie Murphy, so figure that one out.”
We’re not quite sure how Eddie Murphy is gong to end up as a triplet of Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, who played Schwarzenegger’s twin in the 1988 comedy, but we’re curious to find out. In the meantime, you can see Schwarzenegger in Escape Plan, which opens in September.
