Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he will star in a fifth "Terminator" movie.

"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 said.

He should be happy. Do you know how hard it is to get action-movie roles when you're in your 90s?

Then again, it seems to work for Sylvester Stallone.

According to EmpireOnline.com, Brother-sister team Megan and David Ellison are producing the film and Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are writing the fifth installment.

According to the website, word broke earlier this week that Paramount was in talks to make and distribute the new film. No word on who might co-star or direct.
