Oh Governator. How you provide us with endless entertainment, in films, in office, and now, via Twitter. Quint over at AICN recently posted a new twitter from Arnie about his upcoming appearance in McG’s Terminator Salvation. We’ve talked about whether or not he would be showing up in the film and have learned that, he himself did not have time to shoot anything for the film, but 1984′s Arnold Schwarzenegger sure did! Apparently, with the use of special effects, the old Arnie will be making a cameo.
Check out what Schwarzenegger had to say about his “appearance” in the Terminator via a twitter Q&A (his account is @schwarzenegger) below…
Right now, they’re looking at the technology and see if it is possible to create a technology where they can use my image in the film without me actually filming, because I made it clear I don’t have the time… and if they shoot outside the state, I would not participate… But I would be willing to be in the movie if they get the technology together. We have a great relationship with the people making the movie.. McG is the director, he’s a terrific talented guy. I’m going to be at the premiere, I told him I want to be as supportive as possible.
I think that within the next week or so, we will see if they are technologically able to do that. It’s terrific because they basically take technology out of Terminator 1 and use that walk of mine, and somehow bring it in… it’s just a brief scene, where we see one of the leads run into a room and he sees the future terminators because it’s kind of a prequel… then he gets thrown around, then he goes in another room and there’s other terminators, so there’s supposed to be all these new terminators. I think it’s cool to continue on with the franchise, and in case I want to jump over again and get into the acting when we’re through here.
Somehow I don’t think that they’re “creating” the technology with the film a month away from it’s release. Either they’ve come up with the technology or they haven’t, and the fact that he’s mentioning means that they probably have. Which means we’ll be seeing half of a green screened body builder and half or a 1984 re-created Arnie. Cool. I liked him better in the 80′s.
I love how he ends his twitter by talking about his political run in office as, “when we’re through here.” When we’re through here? Does he have access to any red buttons? Because if so, they need to be taken away from him ASAP.
I think it’s time he gets OUT of office and back INTO films. What do you think?
