Terminator Co-Writer Reveals Where "Hasta La Vista, Baby" Came From

Schwarzenegger also admits he had issues with "I'll Be Back"

Terminator 2: Judgment Day is returning to cinemas this week for one day only. To celebrate the re-release, co-writer William Wisher and Arnold Schwarzenegger having been looking back on the film's most iconic lines.

Long before the Terminator went onto to be know for "Hasta La Vista, baby", Wisher revealed it was just something he used to say on the phone to director James Cameron.

In a new featurette accompanying the re-release, Wisher said we: "used to say to each other when we were talking on the telephone, as we were hanging up... neither one of us ever had any idea that that line would become an iconic piece of dialogue."

Schwarzenegger also admitted he wasn't so keen on "I'll be back" so much so he tried to get it changed to "I will be back", but luckily he was told to stick to the script. It was down to his accent he said: "I say every goddamn line wrong, because of my accent. I had difficulties with 'I'll be back'."

Terminator 2 was originally released in 1991, but it is now being re-released as a 3D version. There are still tickets available for the one-off screenings across the UK today, which are on sale here.
