Terminator Tempting Arnold Schwarzenegger, by Greg
Tingle - 28th April 2011
is looking to leap forward from his role as the Governator,
he's ready to return to his signature role as the
Terminator - the man you love to hate.
Hollywood, sporting and political icon is ready for
action, and his reps at CAA, have put together a sweet
offer that it's pitching to the studios that includes
rights to produce a new Terminator sequel, which would
be directed by Justin Lin, just off doing Fast Five,
which opens domestically Friday, and produced by Robert
Cort. No screenwriter has come on board as of press,
but that may change soon.
interest in bringing back The Terminator franchise,
which has pumped out four flicks to date, ranging
from the original James Cameron-directed 1984 release
The Terminator and its sequel, 1991's Terminator 2:
Judgment Day, to the last film in the series, 2009's
Terminator Salvation, the only one in which Schwarzenegger
did not play in.
the movie's rights holder the Halcyon Group went through
bankruptcy in 2010, Lionsgate and Sony joined together
in an unsuccessful bid to snatch the franchise for
themselves. More recently, Universal has been talking
to CAA about tackling the project. But winning the
package could be very expensive. In last year's bankruptcy
proceedings, Pacificor, a Santa Barbara-based hedge
fund, won the rights to the property for $29.5 million
plus a promise to pay Halcyon $5 million for each
sequel that is produced. Pacificor would be part of
any new production.
going to see if anyone gets terminated in the process.
Hasta la vista, baby.

California featuring Ventura. In it, Ventura voices
his opposition to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's
policies regarding Native American casinos, the
very casinos that stand in the way of the proposed
poker legislation. Schwarzenegger and Ventura
have not spoken in years, according to reports.
September 2005, Ventura announced on The Mike
Malloy Show that he was leaving the U.S. and planned
to "have an adventure". In late October
2005, he went on the The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch
and reiterated that he was leaving the U.S. due
to, among other things, censorship. He has since
moved to Baja California, Mexico.

be governor from what may be a potentially huge list

to see how much time NBC devotes to promoting Arnie.
