Arnold Schwarzenegger has expressed an interest in returning to the "Terminator" franchise, as long as "the story is written well and it really entertains the whole world."
"The Terminator franchise is never finished," actor and ex-Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, told movie ticket-selling business Fandango.
He also pointed out that franchise creator James Cameron, who wrote and directed 1984's "The Terminator" and 1991 sequel "Terminator 2," would soon regain control of its future:
"Remember that after 2018, James Cameron is getting it back, and then it will continue on!"
"I'm always looking forward to doing another Terminator, especially if the story is written well and it's really entertains the whole world."
Fifth film in the series, the timeline-splitting "Terminator Genisys," was released in 2015 and made $440m USD worldwide against a production budget of $155m.
Schwarzenegger was speaking ahead of the simultaneous release of "Aftermath," based on the 2002 mid-air collision above Überlingen, Germany. Co-starring Scoot McNairy ("Gone Girl"), Maggie Grace ("Taken," "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"), and Martin Donovan ("Legends of Tomorrow"), it releases April 7 in theaters and through Video on Demand services.
Director Elliott Lester previously steered "Nightingale" for HBO, which was nominated for an Emmy, while lead actor David Oyelowo won a Black Reel award and was likewise nominated for a Golden Globe and an Emmy.
