Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will both reprise their roles as the nominative time-travelling murderbot and Sarah Connor, the woman whose then unborn son would send a time-travelling bodyguard from a post-apocalyptic future to 1984 to save her from the time-travelling murderbot and, kind of awkwardly, also get her pregnant with the same guy who sent him back so how did he even exist in 2029, omg, in one of cinema’s most egregious ontological paradoxes, in what will presumably be another egregious ontological paradox and the first part of a new Terminator trilogy.
Directed by Deadpool‘s Tim Miller, with original movie director James Cameron producing, the new series is a sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day and a sort of meta next-gen reboot for kids who can’t appreciate how amazing the T-1000 visual effects stuff was in 1991.
“We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron explains. “We still fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters, but we’ll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it.”
