THE TERMINATOR is back….again.
Paramount Pictures have announced the sixth instalment of the franchise is slated to hit theatres July, 2019.
Good news for fans: Linda Hamilton will be returning as Sarah Connor, and Arnie is on board to reprise his role of the iconic cyborg. This will mark the first time that Hamilton, Schwarzenegger and producer James Cameron have worked together on the franchise since TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY (1991)
DEADPOOL director Tim Miller is signed to lead the project. The untitled film will be based on a story by Cameron and Miller, from a script in development by David Goyer (BATMAN BEGINS) and Josh Friedman (TERMINATOR:THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES).
It is foreseen that the reboot will be released in a trilogy.
Plot details are being kept secret at this point, although Cameron has stated the film will be a direct sequel to TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY. With Arnie now 70 years old and Hamilton at 61, it’ll be interesting to see just how much butt they do kick – or if they’ll be introducing new, more youthful characters to do the butt-kicking for them….
