LOS ANGELES -- Arnold Schwarzenegger said he'd be back, and he's keeping his word.
The action star and former California governor confirmed Thursday that he will be starring in "Terminator 5" in the role that established his career.
"I'm very happy that the studios want me to be in 'Terminator 5' and to star as the Terminator, which we start shooting in January," he told an audience at the 21st Century Financial Education Summit in Australia.
Schwarzenegger also revealed that he will be back for some other old favorites: "I'm also going to do 'King Conan' - to play that role and also to do another 'Twins' movie. So I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I'm looking forward to doing those films," he told the audience.
Schwarzenegger starred in the first three "Terminator" films, but not the fourth, "Terminator Salvation," which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington -- though the action star did make a computer generated appearance. That film went on to rake in $371 million worldwide.
