Linda Hamilton to Return For ‘Terminator’ Franchise Reboot

Deadline reports that the action heroine from James Cameron’s The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day will be reuniting with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the planned reboot.

Cameron made the following announcement during a private event:

As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return.

There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women.

Cameron and Skydance are set to produce while Tim Miller (Deadpool) will direct. The movie will be based on a story by Cameron and Paramount will distribute.

A trilogy is being planned in a writers room that includes David Goyer, Chris Eglee, Justin Rhodes, and Josh Friedman.
