We already know that the story involves the Terminator mythology and will be borrowing certain ideas from the first three film including the time-travel element which has become synonymous with the series. This also means that apparently we will be seeing an older version of what the T-800 would look like as well.
Arnie has no hesitancy in clearing up this confusion by saying: “The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath. It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.”
He continued: “Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800. And then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie.” Presumably this will entail a lot of CGI and make-up to give Arnie the youthful and older face lifts that he would require.
With Alan Taylor directing fresh from last years brilliant Thor: The Dark World and the likes of Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and J.K. Simmons all joining the ranks to fill out the cast, its an enticing prospect.
Terminator: Genesis is out on June 26, 2015.
