A sequel to 2015’s “Terminator Genisys,” the fifth film in the series, is in the works.
In an interview with Australia’s Channel 9, Arnold Schwarzenegger said “I am looking forward to it, absolutely,” when asked about a potential Terminator 6 movie.
A sequel to Genisys, known as “Terminator 2,” had been slated for release in 2017, and the film was supposed to be the first of a new trilogy, but Paramount Pictures pulled the film from its schedule in January, according to Deadline.
Genisys, which starred Schwarzenegger and “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke, had performed poorly in the domestic box office, netting than $90 million against a budget of $155 million, and some assumed that the sequel had been cancelled, but the movie did well in foreign markets, and grossed more than $440 million worldwide.
The iconic science fiction franchise featuring time travel and android assassins began in 1984 with “Terminator,” starring Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.
