Though it’s still on course to enter production this June, as was previously reported, it seems that fans may need to wait a bit longer before they lay eyes on the next chapter in the franchise. And that’s because Deadline is telling us tonight that the pic’s been hit with a decent sized delay.
If you’ll recall, Paramount originally scheduled the blockbuster to land in theaters on July 26th, 2019, and while it’ll still remain in the same calendar year, it’s now been moved to November 22nd. No reason was given for the delay, but from what we understand, it’s got nothing to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recent heart surgery.
Details on the project are still scarce, but Cameron and Miller have reportedly settled on a female protagonist by the name of Dani Ramos, who we know will be played by Mackenzie Davis. She’ll be starring opposite Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800. And while we still don’t know much about the plot – and understandably so – we recently caught wind of some precious intel relating to Sarah Connor 2.0, describing her as so:
Dani Ramos is a young woman in her early 20s from Mexico City. She was brought up in a working-class neighborhood, is independent and believes strongly in family. She’s more street-smart than book smart and is a woman who always manages to find a ray of light even in the darkest of circumstances.
Said to ignore all films post-Terminator 2: Judgment Day – much like the upcoming Halloween sequel is doing – The Terminator reboot will spark into life on November 22nd, 2019, and we can hardly wait to see what Paramount’s got in store for us.
