Arnold Schwarzenegger has opened up about his return as the The Terminator, revealing the revamp of the action franchise will be filmed in New Orleans and San Francisco from next month.

The 66-year-old movie star, who returns as a robot in the role he first played three decades ago, let fans into a few filming secrets during an online chat.

He told "We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in LA but most of it will be done in New Orleans.

"I'm really looking forward to that because, as you know, the last time when they did The Terminator, it was when I was (California) Governor and so I couldn't be in that movie, but now I'm back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.


"It's going to come out on July 4th weekend in 2015. The movie preparation is going well. The script is fantastic so I'm really looking forward to this film."
