The next Terminator movie will be arriving later than expected.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Terminator reboot will hit theaters on Nov. 22, 2019. The film was originally scheduled to premiere on July 26, 2019.
Original stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger will reportedly be joined by franchise newcomer Mackenzie Davis in the untitled film, which will serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Deadpool director Tim Miller will helm the upcoming sequel, and James Cameron has a credit for the film’s story and will serve as a producer for the first time in the franchise since Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Cameron and Miller have discussed how they want the reboot to take the franchise in a new direction. They want Schwarzenegger’s cyborg to have aged over the course of the film series instead of acting like the Terminator from the earlier movies. Miller said the Terminator embracing his age will “make it interesting and fresh for the fans.”
Last summer, Cameron also expressed interest in making several entries in the new Terminator series, saying he is “leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it.” There has been no word yet on whether Cameron’s planned trilogy has gotten the green light.
