look-a-like Roland Kickinger has been signed on to play the T-800
robot, a role previously made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

With many asking why would Arnie be watching footage if he wasn’t involved in production?

an interview today, MCG gave Schwarzenegger fans further hope that the
classic Terminator will return “The T800s as we know them look like
Arnold [Schwarzenegger]. The T800 plays a big role in this movie.. I
can’t quite tell you how we express that, but I will tell you the
following: I think when you make a Terminator movie the responsibility
of our team…is to push special effects forward. So what we’re trying
to do is create visual effects and write code that’s never been written
before to address this very question. It is not clear if we will be
successful or not, so we’re working very diligently on going up to ILM
in Sn Francisco because soon to address this very nature because… let
me just hint at this: I don’t want today’s Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
