Arnold Schwarzenegger is considering a return to acting after he steps down from his post as California Governor next week (beg03Jan11).
The Terminator star stepped away from Hollywood to pursue a career in politics and he's been in charge of the state of California since 2003. He will step down at the beginning of 2011 and hand over the role to incoming Democrat Jerry Brown, sparking speculation over his next move.
Schwarzenegger, who filmed short cameo roles for Terminator Salvation and The Expendables during his stint as governor, admits he finds it easy to take up acting again after long breaks, but can't officially reveal his plans until he is out of office.
He tells Variety, "It is like bicycling, or like skiing. You get on it and you feel like there is no time lapse there at all...
"The list is a long list of things I can do, but nothing I can concentrate on until I am literally, totally out of office. For me the joy of life is not to know, and you get into it and you kind of figure it out. I love that. I don't like safety nets. I am not a believer in that... So you go in there with an open mind and you have to learn very quickly."
Schwarzenegger has also shot down rumours he is poised to take over the post of Chief of the Motion Picture Association of America, adding: "No one has come up to me about that." »
Suffering a heavy loss at the Sky Movies Quiz at Collectormania this year meant that our time was taken away from meeting some of the assembled guests, and in particular it would have been great to catch up with Michael Biehn, the man whose appearance in The Terminator and Aliens guaranteed action movie icon status.
Since the late Eighties Biehn has jumped from TV to movies, doing enough to keep himself busy and he has taken on writing and directing duties for one of his six films lined up for 2011 and a new trailer and poster have emerged for the film – The Victim.
Telling the story of a man (Biehn) who solitary cabin bound life is disturbed by two woman (Jennifer Blanc and Danielle Harris) who are on the run from a corrupt Sheriff. IMDb has this as a ‘synopsis’:
A man lives alone in a remote cabin and is surprised by his visitors. »

Just another “True Lies” scoop or a complete lie? An Australian Web site Whatsplaying has a scoop from an unnamed source that Lightstorm is working on a “True Lies” project and considering actor John Cena. “Had heard Tuesday that the ‘True Lies’ telemovie and the series that will follow, which Lightstorm are doing, are looking at John Cena,” wrote the unnamed source. “Don’t know if he’d be a new character or Schwarzenegger’s character from the film. It’s still early because they’re only on the first draft but thought you’d like to know what kind of ‘type’ they’re considering for the show.” Lightstorm Entertainment is owned by James Cameron and Larry Kasanoff. The company produced “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” “The Abyss,” “Titanic,” and “True Lies.” It was reported in September that producer Renen Echevarria is working on the script. For now, let us classify »
That’s the going rumor from the boys at What’s Playing, who have been right on a lot of scoops lately. This latest one, though, comes from an unverified source, and so you should consider it as Rumor only. So, what’s the word? John Cena, WWE wrestler turned movie star, is being “looked at” as a possible lead in the “True Lies” TV series that is currently in development over at ABC. Based on the 1994 action movie by “Avatar’s” James Cameron, the original movie starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a mild-mannered (or at least as mild-mannered as you can be looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger, natch) computer salesman by day and International spy of intrigue by night. Tom Arnold co-starred along with Eliza Dushku and Jamie Lee Curtis. That film was a hit for Cameron, though it’s considered one of his lesser films, which is saying lots when »
Terminator producer Gale Anne Hurd has admitted that she would "love" to continue the science fiction franchise. Hurd, who is currently steering AMC's The Walking Dead, produced the first three movies in the Terminator saga before handing it over to Halcyon for 2009's Terminator Salvation. The company filed for bankruptcy soon after the last film's release and the screen rights are now held by hedge fund Pacificor. Hurd told Entertainment Weekly that she feels "sad" (more) »

The series hasn’t done too well with the third and fourth movies failing to get back their massive $200 million in domestic takings.
Speaking to EW, Hurd said:
“It’s very sad,” said Hurd. “You feel like you gave birth to something and it’s been adopted and those adoptions haven’t worked out.” She added that if another film ever gets off the ground, she love to be part of it. “Of course I’d be interested in doing another one. I’d love it.” So, what do we think. In terms of the last film, Terminator Salvation? Well, that film looked great, but didn’t really deliver in my opinion. I’d love for the franchise to be stripped »

Terminator fans, have you enjoyed the silence of the past few months? For the first time in as long as I can remember, Hollywood has endured a nice cooling off period from the now over-blown futuristic sci-fi franchise and the series is enjoying a well-earned breather.
If I had my way, it would be like this until the end of the decade. At least. I’ve got my Blu-rays of creator James Cameron’s two classic originals, two films I couldn’t imagine improving on (well, maybe re-casting Edward Furlong in T:2) and how many franchises can say their first two films are genuine 5 star efforts?
Of course, the ugly truth is that although Terminator Salvation made a valiant effort to kill the franchise forever and although things may seem quiet on the surface, I can guarantee some Hollywood execs will be taking surveys, drawing up demographic charts, writing-up marketing reports, »

Only if producer Gale Anne Hurd could get into a time machine and return back to the past. Hurd told Entertainment Weekly she would love to make another “Terminator” movie if given the chance. She produced and co-wrote the first film of the franchise and owned half the rights for a long period of time. The franchise has endured some recent changes including McG’s “Terminator Salvation,” which was produced by Halcyon and declared bankruptcy after the film’s release. Earlier this year, the rights of the franchise were acquired by the California hedge fund Pacificor. “You feel like you gave birth to something and it’s been adopted and those adoptions haven’t worked out,” she said. “Of course I’d be interested in doing another one. I’d love it.” Hurd is currently the executive producer for AMC's "Walking Dead." With this franchise’s track record, a new “Terminator” movie will happen eventually. »
Entertainment Weekly caught up with "Walking Dead" executive producer Gale Anne Hurd to discuss the "Terminator" franchise, since she produced and co-wrote the first "Terminator" film and produced the sequel. The third and fourth installments couldn't earn back their massive budgets ($200 million each) at the domestic box office, causing the franchise to fall apart. The company that owned "Terminator Salvation" ended up filing for bankruptcy and eventually sold the rights to a hedge fund firm. "It's very sad," said Hurd. "You feel like you gave birth to something and it's been adopted and those adoptions haven't worked out." She added that if another film ever gets off the ground, she love to be part of it. "Of course I'd be interested in doing another one. I'd love it." »
The Terminator series is responsible for one of my best, and worst, film going memories. The good one was back in the Summer of 1991 when my parents picked me up at camp and surprised me by driving to the Chester 6 Cinemas in Chester, New York for a matinee of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The surprise was awesome and the movie put it over the top. To this day, T2 remains a favorite. The flip side to that memory was Terminator Salvation. Just the whole experience. Of course Terminator: Rise of the Machines was bad, but at least it didn't completely forgo the tried and true Terminator formula while simultaneously bastardizing the films that came before it. As a huge Terminator fan, that was a blow. So, when Gale Anne Hurd, who is currently producing The Walking Dead and produced the first three Terminator films, says that she's love to do another one, »

A year and a half has passed since "Terminator Salvation" hit theaters, which just didn't capture the magic of the first two "Terminator" movies. Those of us feeling nostalgic for the good old days of the franchise, we're in luck: we're not the only ones who were disappointed by the latest films.
"You feel like you gave birth to something and it’s been adopted and those adoptions haven’t worked out," Hurd admitted. "Of course I’d be interested in doing another one. I’d love it."
While we're a bit hesitant about the idea of another "Terminator" coming out so soon, we do agree that having Hurd behind another outing would be a fabulous idea. She clearly understands the balance between the science fiction genre and great character development, »

For those of you in need of a history lesson, "The Walking Dead" producer Gale Anne Hurd also helped to create one of the single greatest apocalyptic movie universes with The Terminator, a franchise which over the years has gone from great to kind of okay to complete shit. Recently Hurd got to sound off about the series' history.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly she dropped the following on fans.
"It’s very sad,” says Hurd of the direction in which The Terminator franchise has gone. “You feel like you gave birth to something and it’s been adopted and those adoptions haven’t worked out. Of course I’d be interested in doing another one. I’d love it.”
Unfortunately loving to do another is a far cry from actually doing one, and with all the money and egos floating around, who knows if it will ever actually happen. »

There's obviously a big difference between wanting to do something, and a studio wanting you to do something. During an interview, it's easy to bait the interviewee into answering a question that can be turned into a major story. For example, EW asked The Terminator (1984) producer/co-writer Gale Anne Hurd - hot off the recent success of "The Walking Dead" - about her returning to the franchise she helped create. Her response, she'd "love" to return, especially after what's happened over the past few years. "Its very sad, says Hurd of the franchises recent history. You feel like you gave birth to something and its been adopted and those adoptions havent worked out. Of course Id be interested in doing another one. Id love it. Again, big difference between he having interest, and the studio having interest in her »
Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd has told EW she would “love” to make another Terminator movie. Hurd produced and co-wrote the first Terminator film and for a long period owned half of the rights to the property.
In recent years, the franchise has had mixed fortunes at the box office and has suffered from a string of behind-the-scenes financial problems. The most recent movie, 2009′s McG-directed Terminator Salvation, was produced by a company called Halcyon, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy not long after the film’s release. In February of this year, the Terminator rights were acquired »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Expendables, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The review is by Pure Movies editor Dan Higgins. This is a Stallone film. The action is sometimes great but sometimes it drags and becomes tiring. The film itself never really develops but still manages to run too long. There are some great cameos; one jaw-dropping scene with Arnie, Stallone and Bruce Willis altogether but it was scenes like this that defined the film. The great thing about Rocky, Rambo, Die Hard, Speed, Terminator, Predators (etc) is that they were serious (to a point) action films. Sure, they are cheesy but, at the same time, thoroughly enjoyable. The Expendables, however, never really elevates itself away from anything other than ‘We have a load of really famous action stars, how cool is this? »

But Wilde’s appearance as a beautiful program is more than just a nod to Cindy Morgan’s attractive turn as Yori in the original film, it’s also the latest instance of sexy femininity in sci-fi, a legacy that stretches back decades and encompasses everything from bikini-clad bounty hunters to pleasure robots.
Join us as we count down the 20 sexiest.
When we first meet the mother of Luke and Leia Skywalker, she’s nothing more than a child, thrust into a difficult rule on her home planet of Naboo. But as the prequel trilogy progressed, Padme became so much more than just the vessel for a future generation of heroes, »

With the trailer arriving earlier today, and the news that both I Am Number Four and fellow Disney/DreamWorks release Real Steel will be seeing release in the IMAX format, it’s not completely a coincidence that Empire got a chance to chat with director DJ Caruso as he slaved over a hot Avid machine with editor Jim Page at the Amblin offices on the Universal lot in Los Angeles.Caruso showed off several scenes from the movie, including one set in a school hallway that features Teresa Palmer’s Number Six saving John and Sarah from their evil extraterrestrial attackers in a moment that definitely had echoes of Terminator 2. So we couldn’t resist asking if this is the director of Disturbia and Eagle Eye channelling his inner James Cameron.“Maybe in a sci-fi way,” he laughs. “I think there's a little bit of that. I did some Dark Angel »
Almost every week, Guillermo del Toro's name comes up in regards to something. He's producing this , he's developing that , appearing here , overseeing this . But when is he finally going to get back to directing? After he left The Hobbit, we all assumed del Toro's next film would be  At the Mountains of Madness, produced by James Cameron, but there haven't been any updates in a few months. Well, del Toro has changed that with a whole bunch of updates including an estimated start date and more. Read about them after the jump. Del Toro did an interview with the Los Angeles Times  in which he stated he's "actively engaged with the project" and last week had a "summit meeting" with Universal.
