She'll be back!
Actress Linda Hamilton is set to return to the world of Terminator after departing from the franchise more than 25 years ago. Director James Cameron made the announcement at a private event celebrating the series, saying, "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."
Tim Miller is directing the upcoming sixth instalment of the Terminator franchise - the first one to have involvement from James Cameron since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Cameron will produce the new film along with Skydance.
Linda Hamilton first appeared in Terminator as one of the silver screen's strongest female heroines, Sarah Connor. The character was a waitress who is being hunted down by an unstoppable killing machine, played by Schwarzenegger, sent from the future. Connor learned that in the future, machines have taken over and that she is the mother of the human resistance leader.
Hamilton returned to the role for Terminator 2: Judgment Day seven years later.
While story details for the new film are being kept under wraps, we do know that both Cameron and Miller are treating it as a direct sequel to the 1991 blockbuster.
The new movie will also be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of characters.
"We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story," Cameron said. "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."
