I’m not a huge fan of reporting on unconfirmed dates, but Terminator franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger told fansite Arnold Fans that shooting will begin this coming June on the Tim Miller-directed sequel.
“We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that,” Schwarzenegger tells the site. “I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”
Cameron is busy working on his Avatar sequels, but hand-picked the Deadpool director to continue his story that concluded with the T-800 giving a thumbs up to the Sarah and John Connor at the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The sequel will ignore all other sequels and begin a new timeline because, well, they can.
While there’s no word on if Edward Furlong will return, Linda Hamilton is confirmed to star alongside a new strong female character.
“We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron noted last year. “We will fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters but we’ll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it.”
The film, set for release on July 26th, 2019.
