Arnold Schwarzenegger recently did a “Ask Me Anything” session on reddit after posting the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer, and the actor posted details about an idea he had for a scene in COMMANDO. Unfortunately no one took the scene seriously back then because the whole thing was just too insane.
“As soon as a carried a thousand pound log with one arm I knew it was funny. But let me share the scenes you didn’t see that I tired to get in.
“I wanted to cut off a guys’s arm and kill him with it. 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 a 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**k 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**k out of my office.'”
Since most people know that the actor always has a one-liner for these types of scenes, someone asked him what his one-liner would have been, to which he replied: “Thanks for lending me a hand.”
Somehow, the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer posted by Arnold on reddit turned into an AMA and someone asked about Commando…. pic.twitter.com/vetmz06QzA
