Make a Date With the New Terminator Film

Published

Paramount Pictures isn’t wasting any time at all getting the sixth film in the Terminator franchise on everyone’s radar as today they’ve announced a release date for the flick which reunites Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, and James Cameron. Look for it in theaters on July 26, 2019.

Tim Miller, the filmmaker who made his breakout feature debut with Deadpool, is directing the sequel, which is returning to its roots by having the involvement of Cameron for the first time since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Cameron is producing along with Skydance. And the new film, which will be distributed by Paramount with Fox handling it internationally, is based on a story crafted by Cameron. Cameron and Miller created a writers room to hammer out what is planned to be a trilogy that can stand as single movies or form an overarching story. David Goyer, whose credits include the Blade and Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies; Charles Eglee, who created “Dark Angel” with Cameron; and Josh Friedman, who created the Terminator TV spinoff, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” were part of that room.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has starred as both a bad guy and good guy portraying the cool killer robot sent from the future, is already set to return; and with Cameron and now Hamilton on board, the new Terminator film will once again have its original creative team.

Story details are, of course, being kept under wraps, but Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron’s Judgment Day. And the themes of the potential evils of technology will once again be at the fore.

But the new movie will also be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of characters.

We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron said recently. “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.
