Arnold Schwarzenegger suggests ‘Terminator 6’ is still happening

Recent reports suggested plans for sequel to 'Terminator Genisys' had been scrapped

Arnold Schwarzenegger has said that a new Terminator film is still going ahead, despite recent reports suggesting otherwise.

The actor turned politician turned actor once more appeared on Australia’s Channel 9 (via The Telegraph) last week and was quizzed in the possibility of there being sixth Terminator film in the future. He responded by telling host Richard Wilkins: “I am looking forward to it, absolutely.”

This has left fans confused following reports earlier this year that a sequel to Terminator: Genisys had been taken off the release schedule and its production future thrown into doubt.

Paramount had scheduled the Genisys follow-up for May 19, 2017, but the studio’s Baywatch movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron has now been moved into this release slot. Meanwhile, the Terminator sequel is nowhere to be seen on the 2017 release slate.

Directed by Thor: The Dark World‘s Alan Taylor, Terminator Genisys was originally conceived as the first film in a reboot trilogy teaming Arnold Schwarzenegger with Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke.

It opened in cinemas last July to poor reviews and performed somewhat disappointingly at the box office, especially in the US.
