The official release date has just been announced Terminator fans! That’s right, “Terminator 6”, produced by James Cameron and directed by Tim Miller will debut in movie cinemas across the world on the 26th of July, 2019!
Revealed in an article by The Hollywood Reporter, the reporter also reveals some transcripts of the actual T6 announcement that occurred last Tuesday at the Paramount Theatre in Los Angeles, California (as well as actual video of James Cameron and Tim Miller on stage that wonderful night!)
Here are some highlights:
On what it was like to approach Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton to return for “Terminator 6”:
JIM CAMERON: Well, Arnold just expected to come back. So that was easy. I approached Linda to see if she’d even be interested. And …
TIM MILLER: Jim was fucking terrified.
JIM CAMERON: I was. It took me a week just to get up the nerve. No, that’s not true. Linda and I have a great relationship. We’ve stayed friends through the thick and thin of it all. And she is the mother of my eldest daughter. [They were married from 1997 to 1999.] So I called her up, and I said: “Look, we could rest on our laurels. It’s ours to lose, in a sense. We created this thing several decades ago. But, here’s what can be really cool. You can come back and show everybody how it’s done.” Because in my mind, it hasn’t been done a whole lot since the way she did it back in ’91.
On how to deal with Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s advanced age of 71:
JIM CAMERON: You don’t have to get around it. The beauty of it is: He’s a cyborg. And so, the org part is on the outside, meaning organism. And Reese says it in the first film: “They sweat. They have bad breath.” Because they were supposed to be infiltration units, so there’s this idea that flesh sort of sheaths over a metal endo-skeleton. So that would age normally. So, obviously he’s one that’s been in action and operation for a long time. And that’s all I want to say about the actual story part of it.
TIM MILLER: I haven’t talked to Arnold about this so I could get in trouble. But because he’s been in all the other movies — unlike Linda — I do think there needs to be a reason to be different here. I like my sci-fi grounded. I like my characters grounded. And what Jim said about the exterior aging while the interior remains the same — well, not the interior, as in the brain, as emotionally and intellectually he will have evolved. They’re learning machines. But that’s a way to make it different than it was. Even in Genisys, he looked — I should stop — he was a slightly gussied-up version of the old Terminator. I think we should embrace his age. And that’s what’s going to make it interesting and fresh for the fans.
On handing the Terminator franchise over to Tim Miller to control:
JIM CAMERON: Look, we’re both taking a risk. That’s the nature of the director-producer relationship. But I feel really confident. We’re already about seven or eight months into the creative process, and we haven’t killed each other yet. There’s been some fur flying, but it’s always been for the right reason. I feel Tim’s commitment. I feel David’s commitment. They feel my commitment. That’s it. We’re brothers-in-arms at this point.
