While attending a special Q&A on Saturday 15 November ‘Terminator’ star Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that there are rumblings about a sequel to his 1987 film ‘The Running Man,’ which was a loose adaptation of one of Stephen King’s short stories from ‘The Bachman’ books.
Speaking about returning to the role of Conan the Barbarian in ‘The Legend of Conan,’ he said: “It’s an honour to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild.
“Harrison Ford was recently asked to get back to Star Wars, but it’s very rare to come back [after so many years].”
He continued “They’re doing a Twins sequel, to be called Triplets. I’ve read the first draft.
“There’s rumblings of a new Running Man movie, so it’s a great honour to be asked back.”
When talking about his return to such action movies as ‘Terminator: Genisys’ the actor said,
“It comes back to bodybuilding, I’m used to doing cardiovascular training every day.
“Therefore I’m still in good shape, and I can do the action and have the energy to do these movies. They feel comfortable to ask me back and know that I can pull it off and do the stunts.”
Schwarzenegger will star in ‘Terminator: Genisys,’ to be released in the UK on July 3, 2015 and in the US on July 1.
With all these sequels happening it makes me wonder if we’ll ever see that often discussed ‘True Lies’ sequel.
