With franchise creator James Cameron and Deadpool director Tim Miller currently developing a new Terminator movie, we’ve now finally got some information and just who’ll be playing the new Terminator in the picture.
As per Deadline, Gabriel Luna has been signed up to play a new Terminator in the film. Luna is likely best known to genre fans for playing the Robbie Reyes’ version of Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
This return for the Terminator series will completely ignore anything that’s happened since Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day. While the rights for the franchise have now reverted to creator Cameron, his involvement in the four ongoing Avatar sequels means he won’t be directing this return for Das Arnold’s T-800. That’s where Tim Miller comes in, for he’s the person tasked with filling the director’s chair. The current plan is for this next Terminator to be the launching pad for a new trilogy, but then again, that was also meant to be the plan with 2015’s so-so Terminator Genisys before that underperformed at the box office and those plans were canned.
In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising one of – if not the – most iconic roles of his career, Linda Hamilton will be back as one of the most badass women in cinema history, Sarah Connor. In terms of newcomers to the franchise, Blade Runner 2049’s Mackenzie Davis, Lady’s Natalia Reyes, and Scream Queens’ Diego Boneta are all on board.
At present, this to-be-titled Terminator effort is booked in for a November 2019 release.
