After the disappointment that was Terminator: Genisys, it was pretty hard to imagine a scenario that would excite fans about another movie in the franchise. But somehow, here we are. Terminator 6, which sees the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, is set to begin filming in March of next year. Arnold Schwarzenegger had previously indicated this would be the case, but now it's been confirmed. Things are moving right along with the sequel, which means that pre-production appears to be going smoothly.
Deadpool director Tim Miller has been tapped to helm Terminator 6, but perhaps most importantly, James Cameron, who created the franchise and directed the first two installments, is on board as an executive producer. And he's been very involved in the process. Filming on the new Terminator movie is said to be taking place in several locations around Europe, including Budapest, Hungary and Spain. As of right now, »
Skynet is gearing up for its long-rumored hard reset.
Produced in collaboration with James Cameron, a bona fide veteran of the series who promises to “revamp” The Terminator for the 21st century, both Spain and Budapest have been earmarked as potential locations, which tells us that Skydance’s sixth entry into the illustrious franchise could be prepped and ready for a summer 2019 release.
Only Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are on the casting docket – for now, at least – though last we reported, James Cameron stressed his desire to “hand off the baton” to a new generation. Think of how Star Wars handled its transition from one era to the next and you’ll begin to get an idea of Cameron’s line of thinking. »

The Terminator franchise appears to be as unkillable as the Terminator itself. James Cameron, for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day, one of the greatest sequels ever made, is getting involved in the franchise he created with Terminator 6. Tim Miller is directing Terminator 6, but Cameron is heavily involved as a producer. Now, someone else from the T2 days wants to come back for the sequel. Robert Patrick, the man who brought the T-1000 to life, would absolutely be down to reprise his role in Terminator 6, assuming they'd like him to come back.
The actor appeared at New York Comic-Con to promote his latest project for Amazon, Lore. During a chat with Screen Rant, Robert Patrick was asked if he would be up to return to the Terminator franchise, given the opportunity to do so. As it happens, he would absolutely be game for it and, »
Listeners of Aaron Mahnke's podcast about strange occurrences in real history will get to see some of those stories come to life on screen in Amazon Prime Video's six-episode Lore series, which is teased in a new clip that debuted at the show's New York Comic Con panel hosted by Kevin Smith.
At the New York Comic Con panel, Lore executive producer Gale Anne Hurd said that "the scariest stories are true and this is a way to bring it to life." The show's narrator (and creator of the podcast it's based on) Aaron Mahnke reinforced Hurd's stance, saying, "I like to focus on stories that are on the fuzzy line of reality," while one of the show's actors, Robert Patrick, shared his excitement for the series, saying, "The chance to do a period piece and go deep with the character was a lot of fun."

Since its 1982 release, two schools of thought have emerged regarding Ridley Scott’s sci-fi neo-noir Blade Runner. Some believe the film’s striking visuals and rich subtext makes it undeniably worthy of its hard-earned classic status — following a famously disappointing theatrical run — while others believe its bizarre aesthetic and several “director’s cuts” have led to Scott’s work being more legendary as a cinematic anomaly than a masterful piece of filmmaking. No matter which way people see Blade Runner, one thing remains constant: nearly all (rightfully) regard it as one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time. So, needless to say, the odds were certainly stacked against director Denis Villeneuve as he set out to make Blade Runner 2049.

To this day, there are a handful of iconic roles associated with the immortal Arnold Schwarzenegger, the most recognizable (arguably) of those being the T-800. Having successfully catapulted the bodybuilder-turned-actor’s career into the stratosphere with 1984’s The Terminator, director James Cameron came back for another round in 1991 with Terminator 2: Judgement Day, sparking endless debate amongst the geek community in the time since as to which film is superior. Personally, I lean toward the original, but appreciate the merits of both.
As time has gone by, several sequels by way of other directors have debuted in cinemas, none of which garnered the acclaim of the first two installments. In fact, both Salvation and Genesys intended on kickstarting new multi-picture arcs, each of which obviously failed to do so. Furthermore, things didn’t go so well on the small screen, with The Sarah Connor Chronicles being cancelled by Fox after only two seasons. »

Stay in the loop on industry and casting news with our write-up on who’s been slated for recent film and television roles! “Untitled Terminator Reboot”Arnold Schwarzenegger is living up to his “Terminator” motto: “I’ll be back.” It’s been almost 15 years since we last visited the franchise, and more than 30 since the original film was released, but it’s not quite done yet. The new “Untitled Terminator Reboot” is in the works and due for release in 2019. While Schwarzenegger was the first to come on board for the project, the original Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton, is also slated to return. The story will pick up after “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” As of now, there is minimal information about the film, but it is said to be the start of a new “Terminator” trilogy series that may or may not be interconnected.

After making over $700 million across two films (although the second took a major dip in box office receipts), Sex and the City 3 seemed like a sure thing. The film had been in development for some time and a lot of talks were taking place, but it looks like the movie has now been shelved. “It’s over,” Sarah Jessica Parker told Extra. “We’re not doing it. … I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.” Read more here.

Over the past week or so we’ve heard several details on director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron’s plans for a sixth Terminator movie. We know that both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will be returning to the franchise, and that the new movie will serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Now, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, James Cameron has revealed that the as-yet-untitled Terminator 6 will view Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation and Terminator Genisys as “a bad dream”, as well as revealing that the search is underway for a new female lead to be the “centerpiece” of the planned new trilogy.
“This is a continuation of the story from Terminator 1 and Terminator 2,” said Cameron. “And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream. Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse. This was really »

James Cameron has been making a lot of headlines recently, but probably not for the reasons he’d like. He’s currently starting production on Avatar 2 and his ambitious sequels, as well as rebooting Terminator with Tim Miller directing returning stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, but he’s also getting caught up in his criticism of one of the year’s biggest films: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.
Last month, Cameron stated in an interview that he felt Wonder Woman was “a step backwards” for portrayals of women in film and that Wonder Woman was “an objectified icon”. He went further by likening the differences to his creation, Sarah Connor, and how she was not a beauty icon but someone filled with flaws who he felt the audience could relate to.

Technically, this show was a summer return, but it’s still on our radar as a must-listen as new episodes continue to roll out. Comedian Cameron Esposito is a mainstay on the L.A. comedy scene, running a longtime show called Put Your Hands Together -- which is, naturally, also recorded for a podcast -- and she starred with her wife, Rhea Butcher, on the »
In a turn of events that will likely surprise nobody at all, the popular press has continued to question James Cameron on his response to Wonder Woman, and the director has continued to dismiss the hit film as regressive.
Despite Patty Jenkins answering Cameron’s original comments with her own rebuttal, The Hollywood Reporter has handed the microphone of public discourse back to the Titanic filmmaker, in an interview to promote the fact that he’s now in production on Avatar 2 and 3, while also preparing to shepherd Terminator 6 as screenwriter and producer.
“Yes, I’ll stand by that. I mean, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking »

Recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger shared some important details on the new Terminator movie, revealing that Terminator 6 is merely a working title, and that the film will completely ignore the events of Terminator: Genisys. In fact, the film will be a direct sequel to 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, with Linda Hamilton reprising her role as Sarah Connor.
Now, we have a release date, as Paramount Pictures has just announced that the film will open on July 26th, 2019. Obviously, it looks like the studio is confident in the project, and wants to get right to work. And why shouldn’t they be? James Cameron is back in a creative role, the talented Tim Miller (Deadpool) is aboard to direct, and they even have Linda Hamilton, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Things are looking promising! The only question: is it too late?

The movie will reteam Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, with the screenplay set to be the result of a writers’ room that includes Cameron, David Goyer, Charles Eglee, Justin Rhodes, Josh Friedman and David Ellison.
Cameron has confirmed that the movie will follow-up from Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and ignore every entry in the series since. “We’re pretending the other films were a bad dream. »
James Cameron will just not stop picking on Wonder Woman. While the movie has been lauded as not only a critical and financial success, it's looked at as a groundbreaking movie for female filmmakers, actresses and girl empowered audiences of all ages. By everyone except Cameron. He originally called the movie a step backwards for female empowerment and feminist filmmaking. And now he's doubling down on his original tirade, refusing to budge his stance.
Basically, James Cameron doesn't think the movie is ground breaking. And he doesn't believe it should be recognized as such, nor that it deserves the type of hype it's gotten. Cameron originally spoke with The Guardian about the movie. He called it 'misguided' and labeled it as a 'step backwards' for women.
Cameron's comments angered fans. And he even promoted a lengthy response out of the movie's director Patty Jenkins, who has already signed her deal »

By the time he's back for the 2019 installment of the franchise, 35 years will have passed since 1984's The Terminator.
The next Terminator movie is reuniting Arnold Schwarzenegger, 70, with Linda Hamilton for the first time since 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and director Tim Miller and series creator James Cameron say they are ready to embrace the age of the T-800 and Sarah Connor.
Miller and Cameron, whose movie will act as though only the first two films exist, won't specify how an older T-800 fits into the plot, but they note it makes sense that the flesh outside »
