Following the news of Terminator franchise snagging director Tim Miller as well as seeing the return of Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the filming for the now untitled Terminator 6 is set to begin next year.
The untitled Terminator 6 movie as filming late March 2018 and key action will be making use of some exotic backdrops in Budapest, Hungary and in Spain. The film is described as an “Action / Drama / Science Fiction / Thriller.
James Cameron spoke to THR, stating the new Terminator film will be a transitional one:
A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters. We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it. Somewhere across there, and I won’t say where, the baton gets passed, so to speak.
Well, the female protagonist isn’t a surprise, but part of me hopes Cameron’s revisiting the Terminator franchise will open up even more dialogue (and clapbacks) from the likes of Patty Jenkins in 2019.
