The Terminator franchise is one of the most thrilling sci-fi franchises that was way ahead of its time and inspired a whole generation of film-makers to explore sci-fi genre. The movie was a huge box office success and fans went crazy over the first two movies in the franchise, they were edgy, adrenaline-filled action thrillers of that era. It gave birth to a huge action star and catapulted Arnold Schwarzenegger to a God-like status.
Recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a picture on his twitter account where he wished Happy Birthday to his co-star Linda Hamilton. It said “Happy birthday to my dear friend Linda Hamilton. One of my favorite co-stars, a true badass, and a wonderful human being. I’m pumped to be back together again,” He looks so beat down with gashes all over his face.
T6 is conceptualized by Cameron and written by a group of people including David Goyer, Josh Friedman, Charles Eglee, Justin Rhodes with creative inputs from both Miller and Cameron. Cameron has reposed his trust in very talented Tim Miller who was the man behind Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movie that became the highest grossing R-rated movie ever.
He is pretty confident of abilities of Cameron and Miller to turnaround the sci-fi franchise which is almost dead at this point. He said:
“I think Cameron and [director Tim] Miller came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800 but make a whole new movie. What they are doing now with this one is basically to just take a few very basic characters, like Linda Hamilton’s character and my character, and dismiss everything else. Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and other characters.”
Cameron is a passionate film-maker and offered his sense of where the T6 will take the franchise in a slew of interviews, here’s what he said:
“We’re developing a new Terminator film. And The Terminator films are all about artificial intelligence. But I would say we’re looking at it differently than when I wrote the first story in 1982,” Cameron said at a press event. “That was just your classic ‘technology bad, smart computers bad’ kind of thing. Nowadays though — it’s got to be a much more nuanced perspective. So its ‘Smart computers bad… BUT…’ That’s the new motif.”
According to him, T6 will be a direct sequel to T2: Judgment Day and all the previous movies exists in a different timeline. Since, time-travel will be used, the issues will be fixed. The plot details of the movie are still unknown but we know that it will explore the genesis of T-800 character and the human prototype that T-800 is based on. It will basically press reboot on everything that has happened after T2. The only demand of Terminator franchise fans at this point is to see an extremely well-directed Terminator movie. Cameron said:
“We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story. We still 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.”
On Linda Hamilton, he said: “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.”
“You got to ask yourself, ‘Why did they make these characters look and sound like Arnold?’ There has to be a reason. So yeah, it has flashed through my mind that there has to have been a prototype. There has to have been a guy who’s DNA was harvested from, that they grew the organic outer layer that they grew the Terminator from…and that presumably was a real person at some point.”
The set photos of the movie hit online and Gabriel Luna (Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) is playing the artificial intelligence i.e ‘The Terminator’.
He shared some cool stuff on social media with his fans where he can be seen in mo-caps and some kind of a machine hidden beneath in a scene set in Mexico. The movie will be released on November 22, 2019. CHEERS!
