Paramount announced last week that it had pushed the sixth “Terminator” movie back three months. The studio said the move was not related to Schwarzenegger’s recent open-heart surgery and had been in the works prior to his undergoing the emergency procedure at a Los Angeles hospital.
Hamilton will be returning as Sarah Connor, with Schwarzenegger also on board to reprise the role of his iconic cyborg. Variety also reported that Mackenzie Davis will star in the film. The sequel will be produced by Skydance and series creator James Cameron, and will mark the first time that Hamilton, Schwarzenegger, and Cameron will be working together on the franchise since 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Hamilton starred in the first two pics, starting with “The Terminator,” which was released in 1984. Connor was a waitress hunted down by Schwarzenegger’s killer cyborg, sent from the future to kill her in order to prevent her from giving birth to the savior of mankind.
Boneta is repped by UTA, Grandview and Hansen Jacobson. Luna is repped by UTA, Management 360 and Joel VanderKloot of Nelson Davis. The news was first reported by Deadline.
