Published Oct 24, 2017From a terrible New Celebrity Apprentice catchprase through a handful of sequels with diminishing returns, there's no denying that the Terminator franchise is in need of some assistance. Fortunately, it sounds like the series is moving in the right direction.
Following the news that Linda Hamilton is returning to the series, Arnold Schwarzenegger has hopeful updates regarding the next entry in the series.
"I think the T-800 model is a really interesting character," Schwarzenegger told Business Insider in a new email. "He's a machine, can be destructive, can do things human beings can't do, but at the same time when newer technology comes along the character suddenly is vulnerable and that makes him even more interesting."
With that in mind, Schwarzenegger says the next film will focus on character development. "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."
Paramount Pictures will release the next Terminator film in 2019.
