#SDCC2019 'Terminator: Dark Fate' Panel Reunites Schwarzenegger & Hamilton, Furlongs Return & Rated 'R'

Recommended Posts

Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con opened with the Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media panel previewing Terminator: Dark Fate with appearances by Terminator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

Terminator producer James Cameron started the panel with a stream session from the green-screen factory at his offices at Lightstorm Entertainment in Santa Monica from the Avatar 2,3 and 4 set.  Cameron told Hall H that he emailed Linda Hamilton about the new Terminator movie and explained why she should and why she shouldn’t do the sequel. “The key point was that people love you in this character (Sarah Connor). They love this character. The fans just want to know what’s she like now. What’s her life been like in the mean time? Is she still fighting the machines?”

Cameron then surprised Hall H and revealed that Edward Furlong was returning to the franchise to play John Connor.  Furlong originally played Conner, the son of Linda Hamilton’s Sarah, in 1991’s sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day in his first screen role. This will return him to the role for the first time since.

Camerons streaming session comes to an end and a sizzle behind-the-scenes reel played with director Tim Miller and Hamilton talking about bringing Connor back.

Hamilton said she didn’t have to come back, but was intrigued “by time” and the passage of it with Sarah’s character. “There was a world of richness that I could explore and then rock it at a certain age.” Hamilton trained for a year prior to filming. “The richness of my life experience will only enrich the character that I will play,” said the actress, who promised fans that her hard work off set props up Sarah’s backstory, which will come through in the performance. “I had to go to places of deepest loss, and that’s what makes Sarah Connor, Sarah Connor.”

Miller finished up with announcing that the movie will be rated R.  “DNA of Terminator is an R-rated movie. It would be disingenuous to do so, it’s what the fans wanted,” said Miller.

Depending on what they do with John, Furlong might have to lose some weight...and go see the guy who makes shoes for Tom Cruise.

They might go the Fat Thor route where he is hold up somewhere depressed and eating/drinking his emotions because he cant cope with the fact that Judgement day is comming and he cant prevent it and he's suposed to be the savior of humankind, my bet is he'll only have a cameo or be in a small scene.
