Although Arnold Schwarzenegger was not at all agreeing with the idea of passing on his throne as "The Terminator", James Cameron hinted that the new film will connect to Schwarzenegger's once-murderous T-800 as it melts to prevent a more destructive machine evolution to occur.

The terminator fans will now get to see their favorite star caste in their iconic roles but we still have to see if the magic of Cameron, Hamilton, and Schwarzenegger will work or not.

The new film is slated to be directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller with the new film returning to its roots by having the involvement of Cameron for the first time since 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. He is 70 now.


She also provided the voice of Sarah Connor in 2009's "Terminator Salvation". It would be interesting how her character will evolve in "Terminator 6". Also, the return of the actress brings something back to the industry. Cameron called Gal Gadot's superhero an "objectified icon", but said Connor was defined by "pure grit". He made a contrast with Sarah Connor's character, who he described as not a beauty icon, strong, and a bad mother. Hamilton had said that her marriage with Cameron was a disaster.

The most notable thing about the announcement was Linda Hamilton returning to play Sarah Connor in the upcoming movie.

"The Terminator" grossed $38.3 million at the box office in 1984 with "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" collecting another $204.8 million, according to Box Office Mojo. The "Titanic" director will be one of the film's producers.


With the original stars returning, Cameron has revealed he's on the lookout for younger actors to join the cast who they can pass the baton to.

"We're starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story", Cameron added.
