It will be back. The "Terminator," that is.
The franchise is getting a reboot, Paramount announced Thursday, with three new films set to roll out soon. There's no official word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger, 65, will resume the title role, but according to the Los Angeles Times, insiders say the actor is expected to be involved in the films in some way.
Schwarzenegger played the lead role of a robotic assassin in the first movie, released in 1984. The original film and its sequels earned more than $1 billion at the box office worldwide.

Can’t think of anything new so they haul out the oldies and remake them. Then they think the public will pay $50 to see them???
Love him or hare him, Arnie ‘is’ the original Terminator movies. Without him you get Terminator Salvation. Decent movie, but ...
Ugh. Haven’t we seen enough of this inanity already?
I’m sure it will be just as good as the Total Recall reboot or the Conan the Barbarian Reboot
More remakes....geez. America’s entertainment industry is mostly living off the carcass of its past.
Just like the legal profession. Precedence! *spit*
Hollywood can’t do anything original because there are, for the most part, educated idiotic libtards in charge of everything.
They are pandering to the sheeple.
Wake me up when they make something original. Or go OOB.
Arnold was essential for those movies. The only person who could deliver that line and send worse chills up your spine would be Obama. THAT would be scary!
I’d rather just watch the old ones. The first two.
Even the one with Edward Furlong, before he became some sort of hideous beast, was very good.
Terminator Trivia: OJ Simpson had been pitched for the lead role in the Terminator, but James Cameron shot it down because he thought Simpson would not be convincing as a cold, calculating killer.
If done right (like that’s ever going to happen), it could be good. The original was done the way it was because the director had almost no money in the budget.
A “Terminator” with a non-distinctive actor might be interesting, as it could allow for a much more tense scenario. Arnie was, face it, pretty distinctive. No way you could miss him in a crowd, but someone a la Robert Patrick could be way creepier. Maybe Crispin Glover as the new terminator?
And, I’d be interested to see if they reboot “Predator” with one of its original ideas, that the “monster” was actually an escaped military experiment (either robotic or engineered-human) that the main characters’ team is tricked into hunting and destroying.
The funny thing is that the OJ jury agreed. I wonder if OJ considered that before deciding to slash a few throats: "even a professional doesn't think I'm a believable killer, so I'll get away with it."
I like the 3rd one. The girl terminator was HOT!!!
