Terminator 4 is go - with or without Arnie

I probably won't be back

The producer of Terminator 4 - slated to begin production in Australia next year - has said the project will certainly go ahead, whether Arnold Schwarzenegger can make a cameo appearance or not.

According to UK tabloid the Mirror, Andy Vajna said: "We would like Arnie as a cameo. We want to go on with the Terminator and turn it into a real sci-fi picture - there is a very interesting role for Arnold if he wants it. But I'm not sure where he is with his politics - we'll see."

Quite how the Terminator franchise's latest outing will succeed without Arnie remains to be seen. Writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris have already knocked together a screenplay for the fourth outing and Vajna confirmed: "We have the script ready and we are now looking for a director and figuring out what the next step is." ®
