It’s been a long time since we’ve been treated to a quality Terminator film, but there’s still hope- at least for now. It was announced a few months back that Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool, would be making another installment for the long-running series. The project will supposedly kick off a new trilogy, and is meant to serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day. That’s right, Terminator 6 is erasing every bad film from franchise canon.
More exciting than this, though, is that James Cameron will be overseeing the project, and his muse, Linda Hamilton, will be returning to the role of Sarah Connor as a “seasoned warrior” version of the character. These announcements may have proven enough to pique our interest in the project (Or fool us into lending thoughts and time to a long-ruined cinematic franchise), but if the new film doesn’t live up to the name of the original two titles, Cameron and company may never be given that courtesy again.
Offering news on the upcoming film, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke exclusively with TheArnoldFans in an interview. “We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that,” the actor said. “I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”
So, what the hell? We love The Terminator and T2 enough to give the series one last chance. If they let us down, though, it’ll be “Hasta la vista, baby.”
The sixth installment is slated to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
