"That's our working title right now", Cameron explained. I said, 'I can't be involved in this film at all if Arnold [Schwarzenegger] is not in it. Fans are going to want to see [Linda Hamilton] again, and they're going to want to see the real Sarah Connor and what time and dealing with these tragic futures has done to her.
"We're calling it, Terminator: Dark Fate. It's hardened her even more, but in a way that made her much stronger", Cameron says. And ultimately, she becomes a really important character in passing the baton to the new characters that come in.
Cameron also detailed how his one major condition for the film was that Arnold Schwarzenegger return as the T-1000.
So what do you think? Cameron, who is producing the film, says they're now calling it Terminator: Dark Fate. Let us know in the comments below!
Aiming to re-set the Terminator universe and wipe the slate clean of everything after Terminator 2: Judgement Day, the new movie has had plenty of input from Cameron, though Miller is the driving force. When he says "our", he's referring to the new director, Tim Miller, who is best known for directing the first Deadpool film. The script was developed in a writers room to stand on its own while simultaneously forming an overarching storyline for what is planned to be a new trilogy of Terminator movies. And The Terminator films are all about artificial intelligence. Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising his iconic role as the the Terminator, and the movie will also feature Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Brett Azar (Terminator Genisys), Diego Boneta (Scream Queens), Natalia Reyes (2091), Gabriel Luna (Agents of SHIELD), and Steven Cree (Outlander).
While that could always change before the film's release later this year, it certainly sounds like a plausible title, given that the franchise is built upon the very notion that "there is no fate but what we make" and its respective characters' attempts to alter the fate of mankind.
