According to Producer Mario Kassar
He actually didn’t say he’d ‘be back’ last time – though I was pretty quick smart out of the theatre after “T3” from memory, if only to save myself a nice fat car fine, it’s possible he muttered it after the end-credits? – So nobody’s really expecting Arnold Schwarzenegger to don the ray-bands and leather duds for a fourth “Terminator” are they? (Especially considering rumours that they’ve actually written the Austrian Oak’s character ‘out of’ the next instalment).
Seems something’s changed – incongruously, this coincides with the decline of Arnold’s regard as the Californian Governor – because according to producer Mario Kassar, “Terminator 4” is waiting in the wings, they’re just waiting for a free spot in Schwarzenegger’s calendar. Yep, the big man will be back…again.
“T4 does have a script and all we need is Arnie to finish his term and step in front of the camera and play his trademark role”, the producer, currently promoting “Basic Instinct 2” in Germany, told TV’s Extra.
It’s not known whom else of the original band would be returning to the stage, but chances are, since John Connor is a central figure in the story – Nick Stahl may be asked back. Claire Danes, who played his chum Kate Brewster in “T3”, might not be though, recently stating that she’s not involved.
It’s looking more and more likely that Schwarzenegger will indeed only be serving the one-term in office, with rumours already circulating that he’s eyeing a return to film next year. Besides “Terminator 4”, he has a number of projects he’s being pestered to do – including Warner’s third “Conan” film.
