While it’s hard to tell just yet what the anticipation level is for Terminator Genesis, which is due out on July 1st, 2015, production is set to start at the end of April with Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, and Jai Courtney. And it also has Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is reprising his role as the original Terminator. That’s obviously brought a lot of questions into play for fans who are looking for the logic that can work in the series and in a new video interview with MTV that you can see below (and we do recommend checking it out for his intonation and general eagerness to return to the role), we learn how things will be handled to some degree.
“The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath,” Schwarzenegger saod. “It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.”
A few plot details are starting to surface as well:
“Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800,” Schwarzenegger added, blowing our minds, “and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets a hold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good.”
Schwarzenegger, who has had a number of films out since leaving the Governor’s office a few years back, talks a bit about the action side of the film and the other challenges ahead:
“It will be challenging because it will be a new director, and it will be a really action packed movie,” Schwarzengger said of the movie, which starts shooting in April. “And sometimes it does get more difficult when you’re 66 years old and doing this kind of action, versus when you’re in your 30s or in your 40s.”
