Arnold Schwarzenegger may play an Expendable, but he's pretty indispensable when it comes to Terminator films.

Production has wrapped on the fifth film in the franchise, which sees Arnold reprising his role as the machine to end all machines after 2009's Terminator Salvation, which was made while the Austrian action star was serving as governor of California.

And the reboot has a name!

"Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot," Schwarzenegger wrote on Instagram, revealing the movie's title to be Terminator Genisys.

Oooh, techtastic!

"It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding," the 67-year-old actor continued. "From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup - we couldn't have done it without you. I can't wait to see our finished project and I know we'll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I'll be back."

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) is directing the film, which also stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason ClarkeJ.K. Simmons and Doctor Who alum Matt Smith.

And we shall see whether injecting Ah-nuld back into the mix does the trick. Terminator Salvation was a relative bust, costing a reported $200 million to make and taking in only $125 million domestically, and the most memorable plot point was Christian Bale's insta-classic off-camera rant.

That was the greatest thing to happen to viral sound bites at the time, but it didn't drum up that much interest in the film.
