Arnie contemplates Terminator comeback

Arnold Schwarzenegger may return to the big screen in his most famous role, according to Hollywood media.Showbiz news websites report today (Thurs) that the Austrian-born movie legend – who acted as governor of California until last January – considers starring in the fifth part to the “Terminator” action film series.Schwarzenegger, 63, took a leading role in “The Terminator” (1984), “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” (1991) and “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” (2003). The films received wide acclaim by fans and critics, while “Terminator Salvation” – in which Schwarzenegger had a cameo appearance – went down less well two years ago.The possibly upcoming fifth film of the “Terminator” franchise has no scriptwriter yet, according to reports.Rumours that “Arnie” could star as the “Terminator” – an assassin-turned-saviour of the planet – come shortly after he signalled interest in participating in “smaller, more sophisticated movies with less budget but excellent scripts and the best directors at the helm.”The five-time winner of international bodybuilding competition Mr Universe told the Kronen Zeitung newspaper: “It’s not about the money at all for me in this possible second Hollywood career.”Schwarzenegger most recently visited Austria in November 2009 when he stopped by in Graz to dine with friends. The multimillionaire also visited the grave of his mum Aurelia in Weiz.The “Total Recall” star planned to visit the Austrian province of Tyrol in January, but cancelled the trip after his father-in-law, Robert Sargent Shriver Jr., died at the age of 95.Schwarzenegger wanted to watch the Skiing World Cup races in Kitzbühel. He was also due to speak about eco-friendly initiatives and recycling projects at a fair in Salzburg.Plans to open a museum dedicated to Schwarzenegger’s life in the house where he was born and grew up in Thal near Graz have been postponed for years. Organisers claim they want to wait and give the busy movie icon a chance to attend the opening.
