Arnold Schwarzenegger Possibly Lending Voice to 'Terminator Salvation'

August 23, 2008 04:54:50 GMT


It has been confirmed previously that the original "Terminator" star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, won't be appearing in the forthcoming "Terminator Salvation", but it doesn't mean that he is completely cut off from the movie. Recently, it has been inferred that the actor-turned-California Governor will lend his voice to the film.

Sparking speculation that Schwarzenegger will do a voiceover, the action fantasy movie's producer Moritz Borman told Wired, "Schwarzenegger is governing California. He will not be, as a person, in the film." When asked further on the hidden meaning of his remark, he said, "I'm not going to answer the question about what we're trying, or what we want, or what we're toying with. It's really up to what fits in the film or not. Maybe his voice, or maybe not. It's really not settled."

'Superman' Indeed Going to Be Rebooted

August 23, 2008 04:11:31 GMT


After sparking a major question of where they are going to bring the next "Superman" movie, Warner Bros. Pictures have finally confirmed to start the project right from the scratch once again meaning that they are going to reboot the franchise. The confirmation of the remake has been offered by Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov to Wall Street Journal.

In Wall Street's recent article, Robinov stated that the decision to reintroduce the 'man of steel' has to be taken after the considerable failure of "Superman Returns". "Superman [Returns] didn't quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to," Robinov said. "It didn't position the character the way he needed to be positioned. Had Superman worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009. But now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman without regard to a Batman and Superman movie at all."
