Deadpool director Tim Miller is looking to breath fresh new life into the Terminator franchise alongside original series creator James Cameron. The film will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800, as well as Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor, and Miller and Cameron have revealed that this new film will embrace the ages of its leads.
When asked during a recent conversation with THR about how they will get around Arnold’s age, Cameron stated:
“We don’t have to get around it. The beauty of it is, he’s a cyborg, and so the ‘org’ part is on the outside, meaning organism. And Reese says it in the first film, ‘They sweat. They have bad breath,’ because they were supposed to be infiltration units. So there’s the idea that there’s this flesh, sort of, sheath over a metal endoskeleton, and so that would age. And so it ages normally. So, obviously he’s one that’s been in action and operation for a long time. And that’s all I want to say about the actual story part of it. But it’s actually quite intrinsic to the story, that he’s subject to the frailties of the flesh. In fact, in the first film, the flesh is burned away completely but that endo-skeleton… has a power cell that will last 100 years. So, he’s still got 30, 29 years.”
This is similar to how Arnold’s age was approached in Terminator: Genisys, which explained that the T-800 had been with Sarah Connor (played in that film by Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke) since she was a child.
Miller also revealed that the T-800’s mind would change as well as its body, stating:
“Emotionally and intellectually, he will have evolved. They’re learning machines. But I think that’s a way to make it different than it was. I think we should embrace his age. And that’s what’s going to make it interesting and fresh for the fans. And I can’t tell you, but man, some of the scenes that the writers wrote to embrace that idea are f–king fantastic.”
Cameron has also spoken before about the importance of bringing Linda Hamilton back to the franchise as Sarah Connor. After announcing that she would be returning, the producer stated:
“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.”
Directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool), the next Terminator film will feature Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton both reprising their roles from the first two Terminator films, which were directed by James Cameron, who will return to produce. The film is said to be a direct sequel to 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day (ignoring all of the other sequels), with a young woman in the lead role. A writer’s room has been assembled to plot out a new trilogy of Terminator films and includes David S. Goyer, Charles Eglee, Josh Friedman and Justin Rhodes.
The sixth Terminator film is scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
