James Cameron Says Terminator: Dark Fate Continues John Connor’s Story

2019 is the year when The Terminator will be actually back, as soon as Terminator: Dark Fate hits the theaters. Recently, producer James Cameron has let slipped out some new interesting details about the upcoming movie, such as the fact Dark Fate will continue John Connor’s story (via JoBlo).

I think the best way to think about Terminator: Dark Fate is to think about it as a direct sequel to Terminator 2, the third film in a series if you will” Cameron said. “We’ll be continuing John’s story, with Sarah’s story, and the T-800 returns — a different T-800 with a very different role to play than what we’ve seen before.

Additionally, Cameron has also revealed that the whole story will take place in 36 hours (via The Playlist).

I think, tonally, what makes this a direct sequel to T1 and T2 is as much about the tone as it is about the narrative: It’s R rated, it’s grim, it’s gritty, it’s fast, it’s intense, it’s very linear,” he added. “The whole story takes place in 36 hours. It’s not this kind of grandiose, complex story. It’s just very focused on the characters, it’s very now, it’s very present and it’s just a fast white-knuckle ride.

Terminator: Dark Fate walks into theaters on November 1. How do you think the next chapter in John Connor’s story will develop? Let us know in the comments section below.
