It has been officially announced that Linda Hamilton has signed a deal to return as Sarah Conner in the new James Cameron-produced, Tim Miller-directed Terminator project, where she will be reuniting with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time in 25 years
According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Cameron himself made the announcement about the casting during a private function – and revealed that he very much wants to see more older women get the opportunity to star in the action films that their male co-stars sign on to
There are no story details currently available, though James Cameron has also said that the plan for the new film is to have Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Conner and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 “anchor” the story while a new cast of young new characters primarily drive the story. It’s unclear when the movie is being planned for release, but it certainly sounds like the project is driving quickly through development. Be sure to stay tuned for more details.
