Arnie Wants Intellectual Roles

22 December 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has turned his back on his tough guy image - to make "more intellectual" movies. The Austrian muscleman, who shot to fame in blood and guts films like Terminator, The (1984) and Total Recall (1990), is desperate to revamp his image with more intelligent roles. He says, "In the 1980s men were not very secure and were happy to see a man with muscles. Now no-one is interested in that." And Arnie has a definite plan about how to recreate himself - he's planning a project with neurotic film-maker Woody Allen. He adds, "We are talking about the script at the moment." »

Arnold Schwarzenegger: "Sequels Are For Studio Clones"

15 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger (photos) hates money spinning movie sequels - even though he's about to star in two of them. The veteran star has committed to star in the sequels hits Terminator 3 (2002) and Total Recall 2 (2001) (TR2 will reportedly be directed by Trek alumnus, Jonathan Frakes (photos)) - but he doesn't agree with studio heads who automatically want to clone a film just to make money. He explains, "If you don't want to see the same gimmick again then you stay away from it. You don't just look at it and say, 'this made money so let's go for the same cheap shot again.' That's what studios normally do. The studio executives are the most uncreative, low-foreheaded characters, copycats you know. No one wants to be out on a limb." Arnold will even make T3 without Terminator, The (1984) director James Cameron (photos) - because the Cameron's got better things to do. Arnold reveals, "The script was really good and I thought that it ought to be made. Cameron explained he has too many other things that he's planning on that he doesn't want to do that right now so that was it." Of course, they are set to work together on a sequel to True Lies (1994) when Arnie is done with the other two sequels. »

Arnie's Back

27 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

At the end of Terminator, The (1984), Arnold Schwarzenegger said he'd be back - and it seems he will. A British film group has bought a multi-million pound share in Terminator 3 (2002), a mega-effects sequel which will see the Austrian muscleman returning to his famed cyborg role - and movie bosses are wooing director Ridley Scott to helm the potential blockbuster. Producer Mario Kassar says, "We have a deal with Arnie to return and we hope to be filming within six months. We will probably film in America, but there's no reason why we couldn't do the special effects in the UK." »
