Salamanca dam used in Schwarznegger's 'Terminator 6'
04 June 2018 @ 23:07

A DAM in the province of Salamanca which has already been on an Oscar-winning production is about to 'travel' to Hollywood again – this time, in a scene in Arnold Schwarznegger's Terminator 6.

The ravine in Aldeadávila which houses a lock owned by electricity board Iberdrola for producing hydraulic energy, part of the river Duero and in the middle of a nature reserve, will see around 200 cast and crew members descend on it, of whom around 20 are from Aldeadávila and will be working as extras or taken on for a few days to work behind the scenes.

Some of Iberdrola's hydraulic power station staff on the site will be among the extras.

A dramatic series of scenes against a dramatic backdrop, the part of the latest in the Terminator series shot in the dam will involve high-speed cameras and drones.

It is now 26 years since the Terminator 2 was thrust into the unusual situation of being a sequel more famous and popular than the original production, hurling Schwarznegger into the global spotlight and adding expressions like “I'll be back,” and “Hasta la vista, baby,” to common speak.

Since then, Schwarznegger has been governor of the State of California, but he is due back in his leathers, 'fleshing' out the molten-metal-cored mechanical hero, under the auspices of director James Cameron.
