The next Terminator film is happening folks, and the production is currently circling one of its potential leads in Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049, Black Mirror), who is in final negotiations to join the film! She joins returning franchise stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The project is being directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) with James Cameron and Skydance producing with screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games) being brought on to polish the script.
The film has been variously described as a reboot and a direct sequel to Cameron’s 1992 sci-fi masterpiece Terminator 2: Judgment Day. According to sources close to the production, Davis will be one of the new faces of rebooted franchise similar to Daisey Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaacs‘ roles in the new Star Wars trilogy. There are conflicting reports on if she’ll be portraying a Terminator or a human as well as if she’ll be a good guy or a bad guy. Apparently, Davis has been the studio and Miller’s top choice for some time, but the casting needed approval from Cameron, who is currently filming the Avatar sequels. Just a few days ago, Schwarzenegger revealed in an interview with TheArnoldFans that principal photography is set to begin in June and last until October
The untitled Terminator reboot is due to hit theaters July 26, 2019.
