Arnold Schwarzenegger Says There Will Be A Terminator 6, Storms Out Of Interview When Asked About Trump
Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’ll be returning for Terminator 6. The legendary action hero told the exciting news to an Australian talk show this weekend.
The 68-year-old appeared on Channel Nine’s Weekend Today and said that even with poor critical and box office success for Terminator: Genisys, the most recent in the sci-fi franchise, it is expected to return for yet another installment.
“I am looking forward to it, absolutely,” Schwarzenegger said. However, the former California Governor did not provide any specifics on the project. This is much of a surprise considering that Paramount previously removed both intended sequels from its release schedule. Originally, Terminator: Genisys 2 was set for release in 2017, but that slot has since been filled by the Baywatch reboot.
In other 90s action movie reboot news, another of Schwarzenegger’s hit movies, Predator, is also getting a reboot right now, from Iron Man 3 director Shane Black.
Schwarzenegger was not so enthusiastic to talk about Donald Trump. Arnold told a TV host to talk to the empty seat as he walked off an interview. Schwarzenegger, who replaced Trump as the the host of Celebrity Apprentice, appeared on Australia’s Weekend Sunrise talk show on Saturday.
When Arnold was asked about the leading GOP candidate by host Angela Cox, he said hasta luego and stormed out of the interview.
“This is an interview that I only do about fitness and health, not about politics or my relationships,” Arnold said before walking out of the interview.
Earlier in the interview, Cox asked Schwarzenegger about his marriage to Maria Shriver, which ended after he was caught banging the family housekeeper.
Schwarzenegger’s publicity team maintains that the action star did not “storm out” of the interview, but rather that Cox’s time was up and he had to leave.
“The journalist [Cox] was allocated five minutes and we ran over time, so we cut the interview short,” Schwarzenegger’s Australian publicist, Max Markson, told the NY Post. “I think she’s just trying to make a name for herself. She’s new on the show. Her line of questioning was inappropriate.”
Arnold recently endorsed Ohio Governor John Kasich in a series of social media posts before joining the candidate at a rally in Columbus, Ohio.
