California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has said that he may return to the big screen with the latest Terminator film, which will be released next month.
The former Hollywood action star, known for his roles in previous Terminator movies, told a webcast interview on Tuesday that he had agreed to be in the new movie as long as he didn't have to perform.
Hollywood studio Warner Bros., which will release Terminator Salvation May 21, is exploring whether it can insert images of Schwarzenegger from the original Terminator movie into the new film starring Christian Bale.
Schwarzenegger told Twitter blogger Bill Bradley on Tuesday that as California's governor he did not have the time to do the movie, but he would be willing to be in the movie through a technological way.
In the new film, a prequel to the original, Schwarzenegger would be in a brief scene in which the main character encounters him as a "future Terminator", according to the governor.
Schwarzenegger, who became California's governor in 2003 after winning a special recall election to oust then-Governor Gray Davis, said he still has not decided what to do after completing his second gubernatorial term in less than two years.
