Producer Moritz Borman has hinted that Arnie may be returning to the TERMINATOR SALVATION Trilogy in the latest issue of Empire Magazine. The producer opened the doors officially on Arnold popping up in the two subsequent sequels after TERMINATOR SALVATION:THE FUTURE BEGINS.
Borman also explained that the ending for the first film in this new trilogy will be held under "under very tight security" by the creators with not even the crew knowing the final 6 or 7 pages of the script, the reason being "we have a huge twist at the end, which we're being careful not to reveal. Like with the last 'Terminator' — we kept that under tight wraps so not even the crew got the last six or seven pages."
"I can tell you this much — this is the story everybody has been waiting for," he added. "Namely, we're in the future. The part of it where Arnold's character has not yet been built but is on the drawing board.
"And in the next two episodes we'll get to the point where time-travel is more in the foreground. It's the war against the machines, the start of Skynet taking over the world."
"It's convenient that he hasn't been built at this point of the story, as Arnold has more important things to do right now, but that doesn't mean he might not re-appear later in the trilogy," he said.
"He knows the material and is very supportive of what we're doing. There might even be hints of his character in this one."
Production is set to begin April 15 in Budapest for a Summer 2009 release.
