In some awesome news for long-standing fans of the Terminator franchise, it’s been revealed that Edward Furlong will be back as John Connor for this year’s Terminator: Dark Fate.
Fresh from San Diego Comic-Con, James Cameron – director of the first two Terminator movies and producer of Dark Fate – confirmed that Furlong will be reprising his T2 role of the man tasked with saving mankind from the rise of the machines.
Given how Terminator: Dark Fate will ignore all three films since Terminator: Judgment Day and has Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor, many were left massively disappointed that Furlong wasn’t a part of this latest picture. Now, those frowns can be turned upside down.
In the years after Judgment Day, Furlong impressed in offerings such as American History X, Detroit Rock City and Pecker, but the actor’s career took a nosedive after his well-publicised drug and alcohol issues that led to several run-ins with the law.
To be directed by Deadpool’s Tim Miller, Terminator: Dark Fate is set for an October 23rd release.
