James Cameron Says Schwarzenegger Will Play Bad T-800 in Terminator 6

James Cameron spoke to IGN while promoting Alita: Battle Angel, and has revealed more about Arnold’s character in the new Terminator movie, AKA Terminator 6. Has Jim let slip a little too much info this time?

“Alita was clearly put in the right hands with Robert (Rodriguez), is Terminator in good hands with Tim Miller?”

IGN

“Absolutely, I mean, it’s Tim Miller.”

James Cameron

“Can you give us any hint of what’s coming with the as of yet untitled Terminator?”

IGN

“Arnold’s back and he’s bad and he’s a different Terminator than you’ve ever seen before. Not, I mean literally, that he’s a different chassis number but he’s also a very different guy that you’ve seen before and Linda is there to do battle; she’s there to kick ass and take names.”

James Cameron

“After Tim takes care of that can you give Neil Blomkamp a call about Aliens please?”

IGN

“I’m working on that, yeah.”

James Cameron

So, while it looks like Arnold will be an Aged T-800 (human-role fan speculations put aside- for now).

Notice Jim used the words “guy” instead of “machine” or “Terminator” to describe Arnold’s role, amidst all the learning computer/Arnold becoming human, concerns we have expressed on this site.

Interestingly Arnold will be bad according to Jim… this is what the majority of fans wanted but will it be bad enough, or just mainstream Hollywood bad- and pale in comparison to the first Terminator? That said, you also can’t say that if Arnold is playing a bad Terminator- that he won’t become good/play a hero role in the movie at some point.

We have said previously that if a Terminator (Arnold’s T-800) has learned to become a far more effective killing machine; then that might be interesting but there are still concerns that humanising a T-800 could just be cheesy.

So is Arnold bad in this movie or just a bad-ass “bad to the bone” like in Terminator 2?

Sounds very much to me that he means ‘Bad-ass’ or ‘bad to the bone’……I am sure we will get a Young Bad guy Arnold terminator in the film but as far as Arnolds physical role in the film, that still seems up for debate. I would like to see Arnold as the Human template of the T-800, who could be good or bad or inbetween, then you can have Young Arnold Terminator as a Bad guy. Keep it simple and that seems a logical next chapter in the series to me.

C’est fort probable ce que tu dis je pense que le modèle plus jeune du t800 sera le méchant !

He already played bad terminator in T3 and T5. I hope he plays evil terminator this time.

Dans le T3 il était mauvais à cause du TX mais sinon il avait un rôle gentil et dans le 5 c’était son modèle de 1984 !

Vraiment très rassurant et content d’apprendre ça quelque chose me dit qu’on retrouvera un terminator thriller comme le premeir avec du renouveau et quelque chose d’humain ! Arnold Schwarzenegger sera t-il une machine à tuer plus humain ?! ou tout simplement mi machine mi humain un cyborg ?

It’s encouraging that he claims Arnold is bad, but it begs the question if Arnold is even up for killing people as a late sixties Terminator.

Believe me, nobody would like another evil 101 model than I would but now that I consider how geriatric this guy has become, I wonder if it won’t be just a little hokey. Hopefully there is more to this that makes it worthwhile.

Jim’s comment that Linda is back to do battle is vague, in that, he could mean battling with Arnold, or it could just mean in general.

When I read on this great page in June, everything indicates that Arnold could be bad. I think it’s great to see an arnold as a destroyer. because from the terminator 1 we did not see the power of a killing machine t800. personally, I got bored with a terminator that the police followed him “for the massacre at the police station” and did not break bones. arnold as an aged t800 It has more chances to go unnoticed in the crowd when it does its job as a killing machine. intrigues me again chassis? What model will it be… Read more »
