America's favorite political beefcake Arnold Schwarzenegger may have singlehandedly topped the year's best/worst movie news, confirming to fans that he'll be returning to the big screen as Terminator in "Terminator 5."

He told the fan site The Arnold that filming will begin in 2014:

"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," says the former Governator. "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."

The "Triplets" project, announced last year, will Eddie Murphy as the third long-lost brother of the already-implausible sibling combination of Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito.

So get ready, America, because the 1990s and 1980s are about to double-team it and punch you in the face.
