Schwarzenegger has been a part of the Terminator franchise since its original was released some thirty-three years ago, only being absent from the 2009 Terminator Salvation. When Terminator Genisys hit the big screens it left fans of the saga a little-frustrated paving the way of doubt for the future of the franchise.
However, the new film with Tim Miller at the helm may just correct the dip in its popularity with its convoluted storyline and dabbling with time travel by going back to basics and making the plot line a whole lot simpler according to the Business Insider’s interview Schwarzenegger.
“I think [James] Cameron and Tim [Miller] came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800 but make a whole new movie,” he said. “What they are doing now with this one is basically to just take a few very basic characters, like Linda Hamilton’s character and my character, and dismiss everything else. Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and other characters.”
On Genisys Schwarzenegger said that, on top of the story being confusing, it made his T-800 character feel less vulnerable and more like “an ordinary guy who suddenly gets activated again.”
Even though James Cameron had previously stated that the production was searching for an 18-year-old actress to serve as “the new centrepiece of the story,” we had very little detail on where the narrative might be heading.
Miller and Cameron’s production will see the return of Linda Hamilton to the franchise after she was last seen in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, she will be reprising her role as Sarah Connor.
The forthcoming untitled “Terminator” movie will open in cinemas in 2019.
