Bleeding Cool is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he will be back for “Terminator 5”. “The Last Stand” was supposed to be Schwarzenegger’s big return to leading man status, but that film tanked very badly. Perhaps this will help. He was not pleased with “Terminator Salvation”, which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, but no word on the plot for the fifth film or how he’ll fit in it. Right now, there’s no director either as Justin Lin left the project to focus on the “Fast and Furious” sequels.

So, we’re going to get more Conan and Terminator from Schwarzenegger. I suppose that’s a good thing.
