Watch a behind-the-scenes video from the set of the new Terminator!
Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049, Halt and Catch Fire) leads the new movie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger (reportedly sporting a beard!) and Linda Hamilton returning as their iconic characters. The sequel also features Reyes (Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas) and Diego Boneta (Scream Queens), as well as Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD‘s Gabriel Luna as the new Terminator.
The next Terminator movie is both set to start a new trilogy of films and also work as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys. In addition to Schwarzenegger, Hamilton will also return to the franchise as a “seasoned warrior” version of Sarah Connor.
James Cameron, who will regain the Terminator rights in 2019, is producing the new film series with David Ellison of Skydance. The filmmaker originally sold the rights to the original film for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with the agreement that he would be allowed to direct The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first film earned $78.4 million worldwide and was topped by Cameron’s highly-acclaimed sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which grossed $519.8 million worldwide.
Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) wrote the most recent draft of the script, which was conceived by Cameron, Miller and Ellison. Paramount Pictures will release the film on November 1.
