New ‘Terminator’ trilogy planned, Linda Hamilton returning to play Sarah Connor

The Terminator franchise will be reborn once again, but this time a major star will be at the center: Linda Hamilton. Creator James Cameron, who directed the groundbreaking 1984 sci-fi film The Terminator and its equally groundbreaking sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Daywas returning to the franchise as a producer when the rights to the series revert back to him in 2018.

Then Deadpool director Tim Miller also became attached to take the helm, and it appears the duo were putting Terminator 6 plans.

Cameron announced at a private event (via THR) that Hamilton will be reprising her role as Sarah Connor in the untitled new film for Skydance and Paramount: “As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return… There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women.”

Cameron reportedly developed the story for this new film, and he and Miller are planning a new trilogy of Terminator movies that can serve as standalones or create an overarching story.

The duo assembled a writers room to hash out this new trilogy, with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel), Charles Eglee(Dark Angel), and Josh Friedman (The Sarah Connor Chronicles) taking part.

Hamilton will be joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new film, which will be a direct sequel to Judgment Day, but Cameron and Miller also plan to introduce a new ensemble of younger characters to continue on with the franchise: “We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron said.

“We still fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters but we’ll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it.”

Fans may get a Terminator version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will the original cast passing the baton to new stars.

With this news, fans may see the project emerge around 2020.
