It seems that Arnie can’t stop feeding us tidbits about Terminator: Genesis, and now Digital Spy tells us that, after the revelations of last weeek, he’s telling us a bit more. In an interview with MTV, Svhwarzenegger revealed that there will be a younger T-800 model, and that these Terminators will be able to age in the franchise.
He said: “The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath. It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.”
Terminator: Genesis will be directed by Alan Taylor. The cast so far includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor and J.K. Simmons. Terminator: Genesis is being spearheaded by Skydance Productions’ David Ellison, who is teamed with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna in the effort. Paramount has signed on to distribute, and has set a July 1, 2015 release date. Annapurna purchased the rights for over $20 million and the expectation is that they will be able to make at least two films before certain copyrights revert back to the property’s creator, James Cameron. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier wrote the script.
Frankly I’m dubious about this whole thing, and don’t even really think they should have made the third and fourth films, but we’ll see…..
