The release date for Terminator 6 has been moved to November 2019 for Arnold Schwarzenegger to sufficiently recover from his heart surgery to once again play the kick-ass cyborg.
Linda Hamilton is reprising her role as Sarah Connor nearly 30 years after Terminator 2, though her and Arnold’s roles are said to be “relatively brief.” James Cameron, the man who originally created the sci-fi franchise, will be assisted by Tim Miller. Cameron has recruited the Deadpool director “to direct a reboot, a conclusion” to the Terminator franchise.
Schwarzenegger, who served two terms as California governor from 2003 to 2011, underwent surgery to replace an aging pulmonic valve in late March.
In a statement Arnold said: “We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that. I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”
Terminator 6 will serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring the most recent three films of the franchise, and will star new characters along with the returning ones.
How does Arnold train at 70-years old?
The former seven-time Mr. Olympia is obviously more focused on his heart health and staying lean than building a ton of muscle. To say hasta la vista to flab and fit into his Terminator wardrobe with the leather jacket, sunglasses and shotgun, Arnold typically follows a circuit consisting of the following exercises:
* Seated cable rows with V-bar attachment or pulldowns for back
* Machine seated presses for chest
* Dumbbell presses for shoulders
* Preacher machine curls for biceps
* Machine dips for triceps
* Seated leg extensions for quads
* Seated leg curls for hamstrings
* Donkey raises for calves
* 20 minutes of a variety of abdominal exercises, done virtually non-stop
“To me, the moment I slip in to the leather jacket and put on the sunglasses, it is like: I’m back.”
