Arnold Schwarzenegger himself has dropped a hint that we might soon be seeing a Running Man sequel in the works, the star was in the UK recently where he dropped the rumour.
The Running Man was a 1987 film directed by Paul Michael Glaser who didn’t go on to direct much on the big screen at all with his filmography returning to TV since then. Running Man was based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.
Schwarzenegger has been reported to say the following;
It’s an honor to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild… They’re doing a Twins sequel, to be called ‘Triplets’ I’ve read the first draft. There’s rumblings of a new ‘Running Man’ movie, so it’s a great honor to be asked back… [Getting in shape for these sequels] comes back to bodybuilding, I’m used to doing cardiovascular training every day. Therefore I’m still in good shape, and I can do the action and have the energy to do these movies.
Arnold has Terminator: Genisys out next year, with another Conan sequel likely to follow in the not too distant future.
