New Terminator movie to start production this summer
Just in time for the three year anniversary of Terminator Genisys, returning star Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that the upcoming new Terminator movie will begin production this summer.
“We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that,” Schwarzenegger tells TheArnoldFans in a new interview. “I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”
As Schwarzenegger notes, Deadpool‘s Tim Miller is slated to direct the film, which is both set to start a new trilogy of films and also work as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys. Linda Hamilton will also return to the franchise as a “seasoned warrior” version of Sarah Connor. The new Terminator movie is set to arrive in theaters on July 26, 2019.
Cameron, who will regain the Terminator rights in 2019, is producing the new film series with David Ellison of Skydance. The filmmaker originally sold the rights to the original film for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with the agreement that he would be allowed to direct The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first film earned $78.4 million worldwide and was topped by Cameron’s highly-acclaimed sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which grossed $519.8 million worldwide.
