Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a new photo of him and Linda Hamilton from the set of Terminator 6. After spending years away from the Terminator franchise, James Cameron is returning to produce the latest installment in the series which is said to ignore everything that followed his 1991 seminal film, Terminator 2: Judgment Day - that means Terminator 3, Terminator Salvation, and Terminator: Genisys. By doing so, Cameron is looking to give fans a proper continuation of the story he shepherded.
In next year's installment, which is being directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller, with a story by Miller, Cameron, and David Ellison, Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as the iconic T-800 and reunite with Hamilton's Sarah Connor. It will be the first time that Hamilton will appear in a Terminator film since the 1991 sequel, and fans got a first look at her character, Sarah Connor, as well as some of the new stars, in a recent photo that included Natalia Reyes as Dani Ramos and Mackenzie Davis as Grace. But now they get to see the original franchise stars return in yet another photo.
To commemorate Linda Hamilton's birthday today, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a photo of the two of them online from the set of Terminator 6. Along with the new photo is another one of them from several years ago, but almost in the same pose. It's certainly something that will make fans feel nostalgic as well as excited about the new movie, which is still in production and likely will be for quite some time. Take a look at the photo:
This project comes on the heels of Paramount Pictures initially shelving plans for Terminator 6 and Terminator 7, which would've followed the story established in 2015's installment. Unfortunately, considering the critical and commercial failure of that movie, it isn't all too surprising that the studio wanted to move away from that story arc and return to the one that originally got audiences on board with this franchise. Plus, having Cameron on board in a creative role only further increased interest, which arguably peaked when it was revealed the two original stars would be returning.
Terminator 6 - a sequel that may receive another title closer to release - was originally slated to hit theaters in summer 2019 but was recently pushed to November of that year - November 15, to be specific. While it's certainly a highly-anticipated blockbuster film, it's opening two weeks after Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 and one week after Matthew Vaugh's Kingsman 3 (a release date that was previously held for Bond 25), so regardless of its quality, the upcoming sequel will have stiff competition to deal with.
