Arnold Schwarzenegger Wasn’t In ‘Predator 2’ Because Pay Too Low

Arnold Schwarzenegger Wasn't In 'Predator 2' Because Pay Too Low

The former governor of California was close to joining the project – a follow-up to the 1987 sci-fi thriller ‘Predator’ – but didn’t due to a dispute over money, producer John Davis has revealed, adding it is possible for more movies to be made in the series.

He said: “The sequel to the first one rebooted it. We should’ve had Arnold in the movie. The deal broke down over $250,000, which is a shame. But it was moved from the jungle to the city. You have to create a freshness about it.”

“If we were going to do it with Arnold; it was like, ‘Does it make sense to go back and to put him with a young team?’ So maybe it’s 20 years later, you have retired, and you are the one person who has survived one of these encounters.

“Is that a reboot in the fact that you are in it with a group of young guys? Is that a reboot? You just have to figure out a way to reboot it.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Was Idolized By His Love Child
