He'll be back. Just not until the storm blows over.
So what's that mean for Terminator 5?
It means we're going to have wait for a long time. And the 63-year-old actor isn't getting any younger.
Schwarzenegger, who remains in hiding since dropping the bombshell earlier this week (and just days after announcing his separation from Maria Shriver), today instructed his agents at the Creative Artists Agency to hit the pause button on all the various movie and TV projects in the works.
Cue the hasta la vista jokes, baby.
"Gov. Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines," read a statement from his office.
"This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Gov. Schwarzenegger decides." It also means The Governator cartoon he was working on has been shelved.
For now, we'll just have to settle for South Park.
