Comic-Con: Terminator: Dark Fate confirmed to be Rated R
Straight from the panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller has confirmed that the new film will indeed be rated R.
“The DNA of Terminator is an R-rated f***ing’ movie,” Miller said. “To not do it R feels disingenuous to the source material…We knew that was what the fans wanted and what we always wanted to do. I have so many takes of Linda saying f*ck!”
To date, three of the five movies in the series have been rated “R” with 2009’s Terminator: Salvation and 2015’s Terminator: Genisys the “family friendly” standouts.
A sequel to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, the new film will ignore all the other movies in the franchise and picks up decades later as a new type of Terminator is sent back to terminate a new target. This new group of heroes will cross paths with Sarah Connor and the original Terminator who will team up with them to make their own fate.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as the titular android with a license to kill. Hamilton will reprise her role for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Cameron, the writer and director of the same two entries as well as Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009) is also returning as a producer of the forthcoming film.
Terminator: Dark Fate has no shortage of new faces, however, Miller, who is best known for directing Deadpool is stepping behind the camera for the film. Hamilton and Schwarzenegger will share the screen with Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Reyes (Birds of Passage) and Luna (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
Terminator: Dark Fate hits theaters on November 1.
