She never said she would be back, but she is!
The Terminator franchise, much like it’s iconic killing machines, refuses to die and a reboot/sequel has been in the works. Directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) it is the latest attempt to successfully breathe new life into the globally recognized franchise that made household names of its stars.
Now one of those iconic stars is returning to the big screen. Linda Hamilton returns to the role of Sarah Connor for the first time in 27 years. Interestingly enough, the iconic, tough-as-nails Sarah Connor character never truly went away as she was embodied by not one but two stars currently seen in Game of Thrones. But now she has officially returned and she looks pretty awesome.
Paramount debuted the first official Terminator photo of Hamilton looking badass with muscly arms in a kevlar vest and aviator shades. She’s pictured alongside Mackenzie Davis and Columbian actress Natalia Reyes. Check it out below:
Director Tim Miller’s Terminator reboot still doesn’t have an official title but as lifelong fans we are definitely here for this. And yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back as well for the reboot – it’s not truly Terminator without the big guy is it? Word on the street is that the movie will feature Gabriel Luna, last seen as Ghostrider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as a new robot hunting Reyes’ Dani Ramos in Mexico City. We loved Luna’s run as Robbie Reyes are expecting great things from his turn as a Terminator.
