Among the protagonists of the CinemaCon in Las Vegas there was also the Terminator: Dark Fate, the film directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) produced and supervised by James Cameron which will become the real sequel to the first two legendary chapters of the saga.
T3, Salvation and Genisys will be completely ignored.
And from the event held in the populous city of Nevada came the statements of Linda Hamilton. To Variety’s microphones, Sarah Connor’s interpreter discussed this new experience and the last chapters of the franchise:
They are very forgettable, don’t you think? Start something and invest so much in this franchise, but suddenly the characters you love are gone. Too many people, too many narrative junctions. I think we did well to focus again on some specific aspects in order to echo the first two films. At the beginning I hesitated a bit before accepting it, it took me at least six weeks of intense reflection. I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it. I didn’t want it to look like a shameless way to grab dollars. Now I lead this lovely and peaceful life that doesn’t involve being a celebrity and I found myself thinking, “Do I really want to trade all this for another 15 minutes of fame?”
The actress then explained that when she signed the contract, the script was not yet completed, but she had been able to assess the changes and the evolution of her character, so much so that she decided to answer the call.
When asked if she would be willing to return to another chapter she replies that “I will have to pretend to be dead so I won’t have to do another”.
After Terminator 2 – Judgment Day, Linda Hamilton had reappeared, with only one vocal cameo, in the Terminator: Salvation.
Directed by Tim Miller, the film is produced by David Ellison’s Skydance and, for the first time since the first two films, by James Cameron: the film will in fact be a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day and ignore the three chapters later.
The cast will include Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta, Gabriel Luna, Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Among the writers involved are David Goyer, Charles Eglee, Josh Friedman and Justin Rhodes, who are working closely with Ellison and Cameron. The release is scheduled for November 22, 2019.
