Linda Hamilton is Back as Sarah Connor in ‘Terminator 6’!

She’s back. They’re all back.

Not only are Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron reuniting for the forthcoming Terminator 6, set to be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool), but THR just dropped the bombshell news tonight that Terminator and Terminator 2 star Linda Hamilton is also coming back to the franchise!

Naturally, she’ll be reprising the role of badass heroine Sarah Connor.

As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return,” Cameron announced tonight at a special event. “There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women.”

The tentatively titled Terminator 6 will reportedly serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2, intended to launch a new trilogy that will reinvent the franchise.

We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron noted. “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.”

James Cameron is producing the Skydance and Paramount film, which is based on a story from Cameron himself. The writers room includes David Goyer (Blade, The Dark Knight), Charles Eglee (“Dark Angel”) and Josh Friedman (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles”).

    Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to Halloween.

    Linda Hamilton is returning to Terminator.

    All I need is for Sigourney Weaver to announce she’s returning to Alien (that isn’t directed by Scott) and I’ll be on cloud nine.

  • Grimphantom

    With the news of Jamie Lee Curtis returning for Halloween, they want the same shocking news with Linda Hamilton.

    • The X

      Jamie Lee Curtis: I’m comig back to the Halloween franchise
      Linda Hamilton: Hold my beer

      • Saturn

        Pennywise The Dancing Clown : Why do I keep having to hold everybody’s beer?

    • Khy

      Lol It’s so obvious.

  • Cappy Tally

    Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode.
    Linda Hamilton returns as Sarah Connor.
    One more, and the trinity will be complete…

    • Aaron King

      Let it be Sigourney Weaver as Ripley!

      • Mat

        or Heather Langenkamp as Nancy. lol. Laurie can be resurrected so can Nancy

        • Mr. Red Right Hand

          i believe i read somewhere that langenkamp doesn’t want anything more to do with the elm street franchise

          • Weresmurf

            Without Wes, Heather and Robert won’t do another.

        • J Jett

          or Amy Steel as Ginny (F13 Part 2). 🙂

        • MeeGhoulz

          For me, Ashley Lawrence as Kirsty in a decent HellRaiser comeback!

    • Bobby Jones

      Jane Levy’s Mia revealed to be Ash’s daughter for Ash vs Evil Dead

  • El_Fez

    She’s back. They’re all back.

    All. . . except for Ed Furlong, you mean.

    • Big Pete Bondurant

      WHO?!

  • silverfishimperitrix

    this movie can’t help but be disappointing.

  • Biscoito18

    I think now it’s only a matter of time until Ridley Scott announce that he will abandon the original plans of “Awakening” and will bring Ripley back in the next Alien. :3

    • Lee W Dalgleish

      Fingers crossed! That would be AMAZING!

  • WondrousPoop

    Heart. Palpitations. Laurie now Sarah?!

    • Jace Junkerman

      i was just gonna say!!

  • jasonlives1986

    Paramount with their THIRD attempt at a Terminator trilogy in less than a decade.

    What’s the odds on bet that this one doesn’t make it to part 2 either?

    Atleast the failed attempts can amount to a trilogy of their own

    • WondrousPoop

      Cool! Don’t watch then!

      • jasonlives1986

        So you’re the one who keeps going to see these

        • WondrousPoop

          Oh please, you’ll be in line opening day. But you keep having fun on here, always pissing in the soup. Are you ever not twatting out?

          • jasonlives1986

            Only ever saw the Christian bale terminator at the movies.

            I’ll see the movie. I wont pay to see it.

        • Khy

          Lmao

    • Maybe third time is the charm? :,)

      • Saturn

        Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as…..

        The Charminator….

        Du du du du duuu.

    • Edgar Pinecone

      This will be Paramount’s SECOND attempt at a Terminator trilogy. The previous one was Warner Brothers.

      • jasonlives1986

        Meh. The point remains

  • Tracey Weaver

    No example of 50-60 year old female badass???
    Try Helen Mirren in RED and RED 2.

    • vversatile

      Try Helen Mirren in pretty much anything

      • MeeGhoulz

        She’s a, to put it elegantly, GILF!

  • Mr. Red Right Hand

    why are they still making terminator movies? jesus

    • The chicken man

      Because they are fun. 🙂

      • Big Pete Bondurant

        NO ANYMORE

    • Daniel McDonald

      Because any Terminator with Arnold in it is worth watching (not CGI Arnold like in Salvation, that doesn’t count).

  • This saga pretty much like the Alien saga is kept alive because many, MANY, years ago the first two chapters of the saga where very succesfull. Nothing much.

  • Weresmurf

    “James Cameron is producing the Skydance and Paramount film, which is based on a story from Cameron himself. ”

    This is the first goddamn time I’ve been excited for a Terminator sequel since part 2.

  • SXiPPY

    And somewhere out there, Edward Furlong weeps silently.

    • MulderIsBack

      Cameron is saving the news of his return for another day perhaps.

      • MeeGhoulz

        Right after he comes out of rehab… again. They should explore that… John simply couldn’t handle the pressure and became a junkie.

        • Rocky Chodha

          It’s actually a good idea, part 3 kind of explored it, and I think nothing was wrong with part 3 either, I guess people just don’t like Nick Stahl, lol.

          • MeeGhoulz

            I think it had a brilliant cast but was somehow not pushed to its full potential… Loved Carnivale and Claire’s My So Called Life!

          • The Fucked Up

            The Universe at large just doesn’t like Nick Stahl; Terminators bashing eachother with toilet pots, or crane trucks… more please 😀

  • Would love Furlong to be involved but I’m all for this, I didn’t hate Rise of the Machines but would love to see a different take. Anything but a follow up of Genisys or Salvation!

    • Big Pete Bondurant

      FUCK HIM

    • Themoviedude

      It’s going to be a direct continuation of 1&2. They basically said in a nice way that they hated what salvation and genisys did to the timeline

      • Yes, that’s why I said I’d like to see a different take on a third entry (specifically, one where Sarah Connor isn’t deadsville).

  • I think I’m the only one who likes Terminator Genisys! That movie needed to be rated R and would be perfect.

    • dsxy

      I think you are the only person that liked it, it was dogshit on a stick bad.

    • MeeGhoulz

      Nah, I liked it pretty much! The scene of old Arnie vs young Arnie was a blast! Daenerys as Sarah was great, it was a love letter to the original with a taste of fan movie. But people tend to want to take some movies SO seriously… The American Psycho one was fucked up, though.

      • I totally agree! Like I said the movie would be perfect with some rated R violence 🙂

        • MeeGhoulz

          But in the end they want it to reach a wider audience… So they sacrifice the violence that would be perfectly justifiable, like Marvel movies.

      • Big Pete Bondurant

        No

        • MeeGhoulz

          >yes no
          Hmmm…
          . >YES

    • Big Pete Bondurant

      Yeah, you are

  • Mike Furini

    so what they did with the terminator franchise was in genisys was created a paradox so they can remake the old films with twists now…. ohhhh the joys.

    • Saturn

      Not really, Genisys showed us that a multiverse exists, and Skynet has failed at every attempt due to that particular universes John Connor.
      They can easily explain the return of Sarah Connor as being a sequel to the original universe which were the 1st 2 movies, and 3,4,5 were all alternate universes.

  • MulderIsBack

    Thats how you build buzz for a dying franchise.

  • MulderIsBack

    Alien, terminator, predator, and especially disneys star wars have all forgotten what made them successful, what made them groundbreaking…it was the technology used to bring new imagery to life. That is what made those films…the special effects were out of this world.

    • MulderIsBack

      Star wars has gone too far back and lost the power of technological evolution that star wars was founded upon.

      • Leo

        We have computers nowadays, the kind of revolutionary filmmaking techniques that SW laid out are by now a thing of the past. It’s a matter of actually crafting a GOOD story – and Rogue One to me was a step in the right direction.

        • MulderIsBack

          Rogue one i found ok. I liked the vader scenes. Im actually a fan of the prequels because i enjoy CG and i liked the political aspects and that lucas took huge gambles and risks.

    • MeeGhoulz

      But… Old Arnie vs Young Arnie ,as poorly CG as it was ,it was such a cool idea!

      • MulderIsBack

        Cool idea somewhat poorly executed. I actually liked genisys but something was missing…perhaps an r rating.

        • MeeGhoulz

          True that!

    • Sergei Kritzien

      I don’t think it was about CG. The story behind those movies was novel and intriguing. As opposed to the fastfood crap they film nowadays, where the budget goes to the VFX and 3d models, while the plot is totally discarded. The movies of the 90-s were mature.

      • MulderIsBack

        Alien (design, creature b movie) aliens (the queen the hive and prac effects) predator (creature design and idea) star wars (revolutionised special effects and cinema) T2 (revolutionised special effects). All of them in some way propelled movies forward in design and effects. But i agree…the stories of all them were also phenomenal.

    • Werewolf

      Stan Winston was the mechanical driving force behind all the best entries of the first three properties.

      That guy was the practical effects equivalent of Leonardo da Vinci.

      • MulderIsBack

        That is why cloning should be legal…hope they have his blood on ice.

  • The X

    “intended to launch a new trilogy that will reinvent the franchise”… haven’t we heard that 2 times before?

    • MeeGhoulz

      James Cameron should travel in time and stop T3 of being made! Genisys I like…

      • Saturn

        Count me in as a fan of Genisys also, it’s my 3rd favourite of the movies. You can guess which my 1st 2 are.

        • MeeGhoulz

          The first 2! …right?

          • Saturn

            Yup!

    • Brett Lovejoy

      I keep saying they should focus on crafting a new installment that demands a trilogy, as opposed to planning it from the start and delivering a dud, just to can the trilogy afterward.

    • Saturn

      That was The Twominater, this is Terminator.
      I wonder if the 8th one will be called Termin8or?

  • Nia Snacks

    See this is the correct way to have strong female leads. No gender reversal here. Just make a great movie with a strong female lead and then do sequels with the strong female lead just like Jamie Lee. Nobody forced a gender reversal here which is why it will work.

    • MeeGhoulz

      And acknowledging a middle aged woman to kick ass, showing how active (and hopefully HOT) a modern woman can be ,despite their age is pretty awesome.

  • Oof. I dunno about this. She was kinda rough and busted on Lost Girl. I hope she doesn’t hurt herself trying to recapture her T2 days.

    • Khy

      LMAO
      Yeah, she does not look all that well. Well I guess she has enough time to get a trainer and a dietician to get in shape. She won’t look like she did back then but I’m sure CGI and stunts will pick up the slack fine enough.

  • Themoviedude

    I went to the q&a with James Cameron and Tim Miller last night at Paramount Pictures…as Terminator 2 being my favorite movie of all time, I am hopeful in everything they said last night. They’re doing this to fix the timelines and everything that was ruined by the last 3 films.

  • Laura Kinney (X-23)

    Hahaha, yes!! The Mother of the Resistance is back!! So I guess Terminator 3 to Genisys are thankfully & officially retconned??

    • Shane Turner

      WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH GENISYS AT ALL…. ,,,….ONLY THE WHINGING FUCKTARDS THAT BAG IT ,,,IS WHATS WRONG,,,,

      • Laura Kinney (X-23)

        Shane Turner: Portrait of a Serial Killer, everyone.

      • Daniel Kay

        Lol, so people who don’t like poorly written films and talk in all caps are fucktards? Seriously they travel to the future to give themselves a 48 hour deadline for no reason whatsoever. They should’ve ended this franchise after the second one.

  • Khy

    And people say the Halloween timelines are confusing…

  • dustin barber

    And people say the Halloween timelines are confusing…

  • Shawn Sheehan

    What about what’s his nuts, Eddie?

  • jasonlives1986

    Whos moderating this forum .

  • Rocky Chodha

    original casting helps, it’s the main reasons why we fell in love in the first place.

    Halloween ROB, I just he stayed away from that Vodoo shit with the mother in part 2, it killed the whole vibe of the movie, sometimes you got to leave wife out of stuff, and that was one those situations, Rob should gave her like $50K just to go vacation while he did H2.

    Sarah coming is a plus, I hope, they can bring back Edward, the kid needs it, but he’ll have to recondition himself to play the part, he has chops for acting, just needs a good friend to kick his ASS to a pulp to make him understand, BRO, you’re so lucky, if you only knew, how dope of character you get to play.

    Ripley, could be back, it’s been setup that way, I mean she can make cameos, as in the future jump, it’ll help the next Movie immensely, as it failed as box office, but it’s digital streaming has saved it’s ass, for third part. David was so on point.

    IT, was great, sometimes, timing of releases help as well.

  • MrX13

    Glad to have Hamilton, Schwarzenegger, and Cameron back on this franchise! Now with Miller, maybe they can bring back Furlong even though he is washed up, drug addicted actor. Get him back into shape and we could have the movie we’ve all been waiting for. HIGH HIGH hopes of course of getting him but someone that can at least act.

    Even though I enjoyed the other Terminator movies, I hope this one sets the right path for the franchise.

  • diapers

    Sounds ok provided Arnold and Linda are anchor points as Cameron hinted, and not reprising central roles as geriatrics trying to pretend otherwise. I’m all for senior citizens kicking ass, but c’mon.

  • BreeBennett

    Wow, I just wrote this in another post.

  • BreeBennett

    Now Fox will greenlight Blomkamp’s Alien.

  • Baron Von Marlon

    I’d be more excited if was by James Cameron but without Arnie and Linda.
    Bringing them back seems a bit desperate. And imo their story was done after T2.
    It’s not like the ending of Aliens, where I had the feeling we needed one final story with Weaver and Biehn.

  • marshally

    Ugh !!!!

  • Marla

    ENOUGH with the Terminator movies.

  • Francis Y. Morgan

    Why does David Goyer keep getting work? He’s consistently the worst part of every movie he touches.

    • MeeGhoulz

      He even fucked up Blade3! After achieving cult status for 1&2…

      • Jason Lee

        what did David Goyer do that fucked up Blade 3 aka Trinity?

        • Fr0gg0

          Making it a teen movie.

          • MeeGhoulz

            Only “teen” aspect of the movie I forgive is Erica Cerra as a young goth chick! That fucking anime inspired UV bow was… fuck, something I thought I would only see on a teen movie…

        • MeeGhoulz

          He prematurely assumed the direction, even having no real experience ,instead of bringing someone who could improve upon Del Toro’s take. The result is weak action scenes ,fragmented narrative and a pissed off Wesley that will leave us without another movie…

    • Jason Lee

      a possible reason David Goyer keeps getting work is because he co-wrote the video game Call of Duty Black Ops after 6 weeks on release it had $1 billion sales world-wide and he also co-wrote its sequel Call of Duty Black Ops ll

      • MeeGhoulz

        I wonder if CoD players really care for the plot… no, really, I wonder if they even play the campaign… the ones I know only play the zombie mode co op.

    • MeeGhoulz

      I thought Superman was boring. Then I watch him facing his worst enemy : a large rock… Goyer strikes again!

  • Matty Ice 2016

    Hamilton has not aged well. You can count me out of this geriatric mess.

    • Frank Gambino

      She hosts this show on id channel that’s actually pretty good called Over my dead body. One of those docustyle crime shows. She looks ok.

      • Matty Ice 2016

        I will check it out. Love that channel. Last time I saw her she looked very rough

  • Twiggy Cochina

    It might be good

  • chris hayes

    I’m in but we need Edward Furlong to complete the picture – clean him up get him in shape & get him on set…..

  • Frank Gambino

    Yawn. I was terminatored out after salvation

  • Rake

    I don’t know this sounds like a bad idea. Does anyone want to see terminator films anymore? I think this series was destined to be a video game franchise but it was created two decades too early.

  • Laura Kinney (X-23)

    Oh fuck, Goyer’s attached?? Fuck HIM. I hate that talentless piece of shit. I was in for this until I reread the article. I’m officially out.

  • HeteroFriendly

    ““There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women.””

    Sounds like the usual hippy-dippy canadien horseisht out of cameron.
    Never liked the guy or any of his movies.

    Its only many years later that I’m realizing that I dont think I really like canadiens in general.

      The feminine film movement these days is just outright ridiculous.
