Blade Runner 2049‘s Mackenzie Davis will once again reinvent the future robot-people we devised in the ’80s. According to Variety, Davis is in talks to star alongside Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a new Terminator reboot.
Just as fans already have, the film completely dismisses 2015’s Terminator Genisys—and several other widely-disregarded Terminator sequels, for that matter. It’s said to be a direct sequel to Terminator 2, and the first film since to be based on a story from creator James Cameron. Cameron is also producing, but it’s Deadpool director Tim Miller who will this time be behind the camera (he does have experience working with hulking, nigh-invincible metal men).
Meta-beholden to its conceit of slicker-looking but varyingly-unsuccessful revisions, the Terminator franchise will once again arrive in theaters July 26, 2019.
