A sequel to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, the new film will ignore all the other movies in the franchise and picks up decades later as a new type of Terminator is sent back to terminate a new target. This new group of heroes will cross paths with Sarah Connor and the original Terminator who will team up with them to make their own fate.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as the titular android with a license to kill. Hamilton will reprise her role for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Cameron, the writer and director of the same two entries as well as Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009) is also returning as a producer of the forthcoming film.
