Although director Tim Miller ultimately exited Deadpool 2 over reported creative differences with Ryan Reynolds, many fans of the filmmaker were thrilled when it was announced that he would be helming the sixth installment of the Terminator film series. Designed to revive the faltering franchise and pass the torch to a new cast of characters, Miller will be working with producer James Cameron on the untitled Terminator project. During a conversation with Cameron moderated by The Hollywood Reporter, Miller discussed his decision to leave the Deadpool sequel and how he became involved with the upcoming Terminator film.
Miller explained why there was a “sense of relief” following his departure from Deadpool 2:
“There was a sense of relief in that I get to do something new versus Deadpool 2. I think it would’ve been a great movie, but it was also going to be a continuation of what we had done. This really gave me a chance to do something new.”
Cameron revealed that he had read the script for Deadpool three years before the film was made and Miller explained how Cameron helped the project receive the green light:
“For people in Hollywood… like, if you send somebody a script usually you hear back two months later whether they liked it after asking them five times. I sent Jim the test and he’s like, ‘oh this is f***ing great, send me the script.’ And I sent him the script and the next day, he’s like, ‘Oh, they should be making this movie. I’m going to call somebody. Don’t tell anybody, but I’m going to call somebody. And he got us another at-bat on Deadpool.”
Miller explained why he decided to tackle the Terminator franchise after exiting Deadpool 2.
“I feel like there was so much more to be done with these characters. I mean, I wanted to make Deadpool2. I was going to do that, until I wasn’t. So, there was that, which took up about seven months of my time. But even then, David [Ellison, who has the rights to the Terminator franchise] and I were talking, like after Deadpool 2, it was going to be this [Terminator].”
Plot details are currently under wraps, though James Cameron has teased that the sixth film will center on a new young woman and confirmed that Linda Hamilton will reprise her iconic role as Sarah Connor.
The sixth Terminator film is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 26, 2019
