Recently, it was announced that James Cameron will return to the Terminator franchise to oversee a new movie, that’s set to reunite original stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. And now, Schwarzenegger has announced that it will ignore the events of 2015’s Terminator: Genisys.
At an event in Birmingham, Experience With Arnold Schwarzenegger, the action icon was asked about the movie by audience members. And, Terminator Fans have reported that the Austrian actor confirmed that Terminator 6 will have nothing to do with their last effort, Genisys – and unsurprisingly, in won’t actually be called Terminator 6.
In addition to this, Schwarzenegger revealed that co-star Linda Hamilton has already begun training, in order to reprise her role as Sarah Connor. Hamilton’s involvement was confirmed last week, and although the character of Sarah Connor has appeared several times, Hamilton has not appeared since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day – and her return is a huge statement about the calibre of this reboot.
This new film will be directed by Deadpool’s Tim Miller, with the story being overseen by Miller and Cameron himself. Other writers attached to the film are DC’s David Goyer, Cameron’s Dark Angel collaborator Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, created of TV spinoff, The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Terminator: Genisys was intended to be the start of a new trilogy, however, it’s failure at the box office, effectively ended this plan. And while subsequent reports said that Paramount had abandoned plans for further movies, Cameron’s renewed involvement suggests that the series will indeed have a future.
