Schwarzenegger Signed On For Terminator 7 Horror Movie?


By: TheTerminatorFans.com On January 7th, 2021

Two big new Terminator 7 stories arrived the same day, delivered by none other than, the questionable news outlet ‘We Got This Covered‘. The fact that this news is delivered by that platform removes nearly all of the weight and excitement from the information, but even if the news was delivered by a reputable source; we aren’t so sure that it would make any difference, in terms of excitement for more Terminator movies.
The news comes again via what seems to be resident ‘insider’ of We Got This Covered, Daniel ‘hope it sticks’ Richtman.

The first news from We Got This Covered on the subject of Terminator 7 was that the new Terminator movie is going to be more of a ‘horror‘ movie:

The Terminator

“Daniel Richtman is now reporting that the next Terminator project will be more of a straightforward horror movie than the mega budget action blockbusters that have characterized the series for almost 30 years.”

We Got This Covered

Daniel Richtman also claims Arnold has signed on for Terminator 7:

“… reporting that Schwarzenegger is signed on for at least one of them, although he doesn’t offer any further details.”

We Got This Covered

So let’s get this straight; the first claim is news that many Terminator Fans have been crying out for for many years – a return to the roots and a back to basics approach. Though this has always seemingly fallen on deaf ears with the studios piling damage upon damage, helping to diminish the once great franchise.

If the franchise isn’t working as PG-13 then eventually it would go without saying that a darker approach should at least be seriously considered.

Arnold being back?

What does that even mean?! Arnold is always f*cking back (he was even supposed to return for Terminator Salvation, remember?).

During the promotion for Terminator: Dark Fate, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke of the possibility of returning once more (after the sixth movie), telling The Inquirer that:

“It’s impossible to say today because every single time, I die in a ‘Terminator’ movie. And somehow, they always figure out how to bring me back. So, I have no idea. It’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve played,”

Arnold Schwarzenegger told The Inquirer

The We Got This Covered and Daniel Richtman claims thus far:

Paramount have a Terminator: Dark Fate continuation TV Series planned and it’s coming to Hulu, sans Schwarzenegger.
James Cameron wants to make, and oversee, Terminator 7 as a future war movie.
Robert Patrick is back as a new T-1000.
Margot Robbie and John Cena are being eyed to bring fresh blood to the Terminator series.
Paramount Pictures want Terminator 7 to be PG-13 but James Cameron wants to keep it Rated R.

TERMINATOR 2: PureArts T-800 Battle Damaged Edition 1/1 Scale Art Mask

And now…

Arnold is signed back on, and Terminator 7 will be closer to a horror movie.

The problem here is that We Got This Covered and Daniel Richtman seem to be all over the place with their ‘information’, which, to be honest, seems to be based on trend-following, simplified guesswork – and, oh, what fans have made abundantly clear for a long time that they want.
The studios could plan to do all of the above, but we find it doubtful that they would greenlight multiple movies and a TV show all at once; this might happen for something like Batman at DC, or the Avengers at Marvel, but it is questionable that the current dead-horse Terminator franchise would validate such a high investment, that is of course unless Skydance‘s David Ellison has a sheer hunger to burn giants wads of money (though maybe entertainment’s a little thin on the ground at the top at the moment… ?) – though, still, it’s highly doubtful.

The Hollywood Reporter Terminator 6 Announcement Event

Most people would be happy to call this trash news or clickbait, but at any time the studios could validate any or all the information if they wanted to; simply by doing it.

The real question is…

If 1/100 things Daniel Richtman or We Got This Covered says comes to fruition, does that actually make them reliable / credible sources… ?

T7 is set to be the third entry in Skydance’s epic trilogy, a rebootquel starring Sam Worthington as the new T-800 and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Kyle Reese, an elderly resistance sergeant captured with purple lasers who will go on to be the template the T-800’s human disguise is based on.

It would be an excellent idea if they make a horror movie in the style of UNDERWORLD, VIRUS 1999, RESIDENT EVIL.

If there’s anything in this report that could turn out to be true, I’d think it’s the horror angle: horror films are typically cheaper to make than a big, CGI-intensive film, and considering the dire state of the franchise at the moment, a lower-budget horror flick may be the only real course the Terminator series can take at this time. A lower-budget film could also turn out to be a blessing in disguise, as it would force the filmmakers to concentrate on the story and characters instead of fancy CGI and over-the-top action sequences. If nothing else, a future-war movie… Read more »

IF TERMINATOR WERE A HORROR MOVIE IN THE STYLE OF FILMS LIKE: UNDERWORLD1 AND 2, RESIDENT EVIL 2,3 and 5, GHOST IN THE SHEL; BLADE 2, VIRUS 1999, AND RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 1 AND 2 MAYBE THE MOVIE WOULD BE REALLY VERY GOOD or EXCEPTIONAL.

I’d like to see development after T-2. They find T-800’s crushed arm from the factory and I want to see what it causes next. I want to see how James Cameron as director finds a way to bring back Arnold’s T-800 and Robert’s T-1000. I want to see Edward Furlong and Linda Hamilton again. I like when Arnold is bad like in T-1 and I like when Arnold is badass like in T-2. In a new Terminator movie Arnold has to be young. Bret Azar and CGI in Dark Fate is perfect and if they really want they can do… Read more »

How dare you shat on my journalistic prowess. Was I incorrect in stating Clint Eastwood would not play Captain America in the Marvel Avengers universarooney? Was I incorrect in stating Elvis Presley was definitely dead? Was I incorrect in stating beef comes from cows. Well? Of course not. And just a “heads up” for you, some breaking news. Ben Stiller, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Adolf Eichmann, Puff Daddy, Margo Fontaine, Lance Armstrong and the cast of Sesame Street have all signed up for “Terminator 7 Rainbow Parade shuffle” with a budget of $800 million dollars. Cameron will have no say… Read more »

Is this for real??!! $800 Million budget. O my god! And the stars you mention. That’s crazy!! I think sesame Street characters is insane. Why would you want that? And Eichmann….. Doesn’t he have previous? And also well over 100 years old. Fascinating. Truly. When can we expect more news about this? Do they have the money sorted? Scripts? Shooting dates? Can you give us more details. Has the director made any films that are not “naughty” I have never seen anything made by humpy. That I know of. Please please please give more info. Thanks.

It would be awesome if they could bring back the original John Connor. They could bring him back by saying he was wearing a bullet proof vest and that he only pretended to be dead and went into hiding. If Linda Hamilton didn’t want to reprise her role then get the girl that played her character in Terminator Genesis she was a great Sarah Connor. I just hope they don’t stop making the movies. As Arnold Schwarzenegger ages it’s only a matter of time he won’t be able to return as the terminator (good or bad) Perhaps the guy who… Read more »
