When MGM first announced Terminator 4, they warned fans that the movie would feature an all new cast, which includes an all new Terminator. Many people speculated that because of his political career, Arnold would be absent.
“We did have to think about a new franchise character. He couldn’t carry the movies anymore. So that caused us to have, I think, a pretty novel approach about what the new terminator would be like,” screenwriter John Brancato said.
Well it now looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger might return after all, albeit briefly.
“I think it’s in his contract [to make an appearance],” MGM CEO Harry Sloan told The Boston Herald.
So it looks like Arnold might film a cameo after-all. Sloan also revealed that the hunt has begun for a new Terminator star. Rumored Terminator replacements over the last couple years have included: Ralph Moeller, Vin Diesel, The Rock and Orlando Bloom (no, seriously).
Terminator 3 stars Claire Danes and Nick Stahl are not expected to return for the fourth film. Although T3 star Claire Danes has said publicly that she has an option for a fourth film, if they want her back.
“None of the cast is coming back,” Stahl told SciFi Wire in early 2005. “The T4 story is changing conceptually. I believe it’s a jump to the future, so my character will be quite a bit older. That’s all that I know. So I’m not coming back, which is a drag.”
