Arnold Schwarzenegger, who headed directly to Southern California’s Muscle Beach when he arrived in the U.S. nearly 50 years ago, was back at the beach again this weekend. Only this time the beach was on the French Riviera, at the Cannes Film Festival, where he was promoting a documentary, Wonders of the Sea 3D, which focuses on the menace global warming poses to the ocean environment. Schwarzenegger, who turns 70 in July, is a co-producer of the film with Jean-Michel Cousteau and Jean-Jacques Mantello, and is also the film’s narrator. In individual interviews with reporters gathered in Cannes for the festival, Schwarzenegger, a Republican who served as governor of California from 2003 to 2010, called on states to institute environmental policies to counter the abandonment of many environmental regulations by the current administration. Although he has tangled with Donald Trump on numerous occasions, he declined to discuss his disagreements with the president in Cannes, telling Britain’s Screen Daily, “I don’t make judgement on it when I’m on foreign soil,” but then adding, “One man cannot take us backwards.” He also disclosed that he’ll soon be back on the big screen with sequels to two of his most successful films, Terminator and Twins. He said that he has been meeting with Terminator producer/director James Cameron and that the project “is moving forward. He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise.” He also added, “I will be in the movie.” As for the sequel to his 1986 comedy Twins, which is titled Triplets, Schwarzenegger indicated that the movie could go before the cameras this year, with Danny DeVito again co-starring and with Eddie Murphy rounding out the troika. “It’s just around the corner,” he said.
