Things might be looking pretty dark for Sarah Connor and the human resistance in the new Terminator film.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, James Cameron shared just a bit of information about how the new film, which ditches the newer films to focus on the story immediately following Terminator 2: Judgment Day, is shaping up.
“I tend to be optimistic about people and our capacity to solve problems,” he told Yahoo. “When I think of us as empathetic beings, I think we’re going to get through this OK. When I see how people lose their empathy when they get into positions of power, then I lose that hope. It’s a sad sentiment that might be related to the title reveal: Terminator: Dark Fate. “That’s our working title right now,” Cameron said.
It’s a bleak title but it’s also metal AF (no pun intended.) The film is directed by Tim Miller with a screenplay written by David S. Goyer. The film’s story was conceived by Miller, and series co-creator James Cameron, with Cameron also serving as a producer alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger. It will be the sixth installment in the Terminator franchise and serves as a direct sequel to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, disregarding all other Terminator works as occurring in alternate timelines. The film will star Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes, and Diego Boneta. The film will be distributed by Paramount Pictures domestically and by 20th Century Fox in other territories, and is scheduled to be released on November 1, 2019.
