Arnold Schwarzenegger - Arnold Schwarzenegger To Return To Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly returning to the 'Terminator' franchise.

Agency CAA are said to be shopping a package around studios including Universal, CBS Films, and Sony and Lionsgate Pictures for a new film, which would include the former Governor of California reprising his role as the T-800 Terminator and would have Fast Five's Justin Lin directing.

According to Deadline.com, who broke the news, the project doesn't yet have a screenwriter but Robert Cort is attached to produce.

Sony and Lionsgate are tipped to acquire the project as they made a combined bid for the rights in February 2010, but were beaten in a bankruptcy auction by hedge fund company Pacificor, who bought the package for $29.5 million.

Arnold has appeared in three movies in the franchise, the original 'Terminator' in 1984, 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day in 1991 and finally, 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' in 2003.

In 2009, Sam Worthington and Christian Bale appeared in McG's 'Terminator Salvation', with production company Halcyon planning to make several new films.

However, they ran out of money, leading to a bankruptcy auction and an indefinite shelving of the franchise.
