Justin Lin (director of the last three Fast and Furious films) was recently attached to resurrect the Terminator franchise, and Moviehole.net had the chance to sit down with him to chat about robot programmed time travel assassinations. During the interview Lin said something shocking: he teased the return of Sarah Connor (played by Linda Hamilton) — but before you get your hopes up, it should be noted that he was baited into the comment. It could mean absolutely nothing.
“I mean, Sarah Connor is such a big part of the franchise, you know. Yeah, I mean I’ve always been surprised how in part 3 she was just like… It was like one line and she was gone,” he tells the site in response to the interviewing expressing their distain for the missing character (from the past two films).
Lin continues: “But I think the great thing about this franchise is you have… You can actually have different canons because you have the element of time travel. So, there’s a way of kind of respecting all the works but also able to create a new time line.”
It has been rumored in various news stories over the past few months that many of the franchises character could return, right down to Kyle Reese. Who would you want to see back? Personally, I’d love for Edward Furlong to clean up his act, lose some effin’ weight and kick some Terminator booty.
