We’ve gone back and forth roughly 1200 times regarding whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger actually has a cameo in the new Terminator film. First he did, then he didn’t – and we remained consumed by that back and forth for months … until now. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it appears as if we finally have confirmation that the man behind the original Terminator will indeed make a cameo in this summer’s Terminator Salvation, though we don’t yet know how (or in what form) he will make his much-anticipated appearance.
The latest confirmation comes from actor Terry Crews, who also plays a small role in Salvation. Crews told MTV that Arnold is in, but didn’t provide any specifics. He says, "I don’t know; I haven’t seen it. They only gave out pages of the script. It was crazy. It was very, very secretive. Believe me - when you see it, that will be the first time I saw it." So will we see Arnold, hear Arnold or both? That little tidbit will have to wait until the film opens in theaters on May 22.
What would you like to see from Arnold in the new film?
Al Pacino to Conquer Teenage Girls as Napoleon
All hail Napoleon…or something like that. Throughout his career, Al Pacino has entertained us with a variety of characters; from playing sadistic drug dealers (Scarface) to the villain in a live-action Dick Tracy movie, you can always count on Pacino to consistently change things up. Case in point: The Hollywood Reporter tells us the skinny little guy with a thick, scratchy New York accent wants desperately to play the legendary French emperor in a new film based on the children’s book Betsy and the Emperor.
So, no, Pacino won’t be slicing and dicing his way across a battlefield – instead, the film will tell of a 14-year-old girl who befriends Napoleon Bonaparte while he’s exiled on the island of St. Helena following his capture at Waterloo. Sounds like we’re getting an older, more defeated Napoleon from Pacino and it should be interesting. I wonder who they’ll get to play the 14-year-old girl? Any ideas?
Sarah Michelle Gellar to Bring Buffy Back to the Big Screen?
Is Buffy the Vampire Slayer heading back to the big screen? And I say ‘back’ because, well, obviously you’re totally aware of the awesome 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland and Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens. Yes, it was the film that originally inspired the TV series featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and now ShowbizSpy reports that Gellar is in talks to reprise her role in a new film.
There’s no official word, of course, only comments from an "insider" who claims there’s an idea for a script floating around that would pick up the story with an older Buffy, and that she may even be a mother. The source continued, adding: "Michelle is busy with movie projects at the moment but she is excited about the idea. Buffy still has a huge fan-base so this is a movie that already has an audience."
