He’ll be … back?

The former Governator wants to resurrect the Terminator.

The new film, loosely dubbed “Terminator 5,” is being shopped to studios. There is no script or screenwriter, but a person close to what Hollywood terms a film package, who asked not to be identified because of the early nature of the negotiations, confirmed that Creative Artists Agency has begun shopping the rights to make the movie, though with no plotline as yet. Schwarzenegger, the person said, would play a starring role as the title character in the science-fiction film, not a supporting role in which he passed the baton to a new hero. The movie would be directed by “Fast Five” director Justin Lin.

I certainly hope he’s been pumping a lot of iron since he left office – or the CGI experts are ramping up their game.

I liked the first two Terminator movies. The third was so-so. I had high hopes for Terminator: Salvation with Christian Bale starring as a post-Judgment Day John Connor, but it fell a little flat.

I’m not sure the world needs a Terminator 5 – and certainly not one with a 65-year-old Terminator.

    That picture! Aaaahhhh! My eyes! And it’s too late for Arnold in so many ways. Now everyone knows he’s short, too.

    I look forward to any movie that could possibly redeem Terminator Salvation.
