Arnold Schwarzenegger just announced completion of filming of the fifth entry in the Terminator franchise: Terminator: Genisys.
All we for know for certain is filming wrapped, Arnold is in it, and it’s to be the beginning of a new trilogy of Terminator films. Emilia Clark (Game of Thrones) will play Sarah Connor, Jai Courtenay (Jack Reacher) is Kyle Reese, and Jason Clarke (Farscape) is John Connor. Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, RED 2), and J.K. Simmons (The Closer) are also expected to be in the film.
Arnold has the distinction of playing a character that made both the American Film Institute’s top 100 heroes list (Terminator 2) and top 100 villains list (Terminator).
Per Arnold’s Twitter:
Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding. From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I’ll be back.
July 1, 2015–That’s not too long of a wait.
