The sixth Terminator film has reportedly been cancelled, meaning that Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t be back.
Paramount has decided to not go forward with the sequel, according to a source at New York Daily News:
“It is over for ‘The Terminator’ and Arnold. The studio has taken the sequel off the production slate completely, meaning there is no preproduction or any plans for another sequel. The talent had been offered long term deals, but this is not happening.
“The Genisys movie was seen as a way of reviving (the franchise), but the critics were not happy and somehow the studio bosses fell out of love with making more, even though they made huge profits.
“It would need an independent production company to think about making this, and asking Arnie back at age 70 to play that again may be a tough ask,”

2015’s Terminator Genisys failed to meet expectations at the box office and although two more films were planned, the franchise has been axed for now.
It was recently reported that original helmer James Cameron was considering a return but the Titanic director is too focused on the upcoming Avatar films.
