Only seven more months until Arnold Schwarzenegger shows us that learning computers, too, grow old to eventually die alone! Speaking to fanatics at TheArnoldFans(dotcom) (via), he has confirmed that the long-discussed fifth Terminator film will finally begin production in January, with Schwarzenegger starring “as the Terminator,” however that works.
Arnold also said he’s still planning another Conan movie and, most crucially, he’s been told he’ll be getting the script for his Twins sequel, Triplets, in just two weeks. “That character was a fantastic character,” Schwarzenegger added, referring to whoever his character is in Twins. It will hopefully be written in the script.
Following these reveals, the actor added, “I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I’m looking forward to doing those films.” For a man who provided the most insane audio commentary ever recorded, that’s still a pretty crazy thing to say.
Perhaps a sign that adding zombies to a classic period piece is not quite as novel an idea as Lionsgate seems to think it is, Fright Night director Craig Gillespie has abandoned his role on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Gillespie’s departure marks the third directorial loss for the project; David O. Russell was originally attached, and he wrote the script before it was passed on to Mike White, who similarly left the film after coming to the realization that zombies in Pride and Prejudice is only worth giggling over for ten minutes, tops. Likewise, the studio has had a real shit of a time locking in a noteworthy lead for the film. Natalie Portman was once attached, but like every other fickle participant, she left, and since there have been talks about and/or offers out to Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone, and Blake Lively, yet still no one has committed to star–almost as if the spectre of Jane Austen is warding people away to keep them from desecrating her text. But no, that’s just the synopsis for Jane Austen: Vengeful Ghost, a film I’ve now accidentally conjured into pre-production. Sorry.
