After posting the trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate on Reddit, the conversation turned to Schwarzenegger’s 1985 film Commando, with one user asking if the cast and crew knew how funny the movie was.
“As soon as I carried a thousand pound log with one arm I knew it was funny," Schwarzenegger replied. "But let me share the scenes you didn’t see that I tried to get in."
"I wanted to cut off a guy’s arm and kill him with it," he revealed. "This wasn’t in the script. He would throw a knife at me and after he missed, while his arm was still extended, I chop it off at the shoulder with a machete and beat him to death with it. Needless to say, I was asked by the head of the studio, Larry Gordon to come to his office. And he said ‘what the f*** is the matter with you? Do you want to make money with this movie or an x-rated movie?’ I said ‘you’re right' and he said 'get the f*** out of my office.’”
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta. The film opens Nov. 1.
