‘Terminator 5′ just got cancelled

Just a few weeks ago, the biggest story about Arnold Schwarzenegger was that he was set to return to acting, most notably, reprising the role that made him a star. Which I assumed meant as Hercules, making me look like quite the fool. But now, with fathers day just a month away and multiple parties to plan for, the AP says he’s not reprising that or anything else.

A statement from Schwarzenegger’s office Thursday says former “Terminator” star has asked Creative Artists Agency to put all of his motion picture projects currently under way or being negotiated on hold until further notice.
“Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.” the statement says.

This is all PR bullshit by the way because his wife found out about his affair and the kid and moved out in January, but ‘Terminator 5′ was announced 3 weeks ago. So he was already dealing with all that, just not publicly. So by “personal matters” he means, “I got caught fucking a fatty and people are making fun of me.”

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER – has agreed to reprise his most famous role in Terminator 5, to be directed by Justin Lin, whose first task will be to explain why a robot has a turkey neck and occasionally noticeable bra strap. (thr)

ANTJE TRAUE – will play the second villain in the Superman reboot. The relatively unknown German actress (pictured above) will play Faora Hu-Ul, another refugee from Krypton and an expert in the Kryptonian martial art of Horo-Kanu, who will likely be similar to Ursa, who helped General Zod in Superman II. This post has already kicked the shit out of my spell-check, if that helps any. (variety)

IMMORTALS AND X-MEN – both got very cool new trailers today, and Transformers 3 gets a new one tomorrow, which combined should give us about 10 minutes of tight shots on actors grunting at things that were added later with a computer. (immortals, xmen)
