James Cameron Reveals Working Title & New Info For TERMINATOR, Teases Future Involvement In ALIEN Franchise

James Cameron reveals the working title for the upcoming Terminator film along with new information about the narrative, and teases his potential involvement in the future of the Alien franchise...

A sixth entry in the Terminator franchise, which will ignore all the films that came after the universally acclaimed Terminator 2: Judgement Day, will see the return of legendary filmmaker James Cameron to the franchise he started. Cameron, who is serving as a producer on the project while Tim Miller (Deadpool) directs, teased darkness in the upcoming franchise entry. 

Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, Cameron revealed the current working title for the film: “We’re calling it Terminator: Dark Fate. That’s our working title right now.” He also stressed that the franchise is in very good hands under Tim Miller,  saying Miller is "a very willful and opinionated director, and he's got his own ideas for the film. I’m kind of like his Pips — he’s Gladys.

Cameron explained that he had a couple ground rules for his franchise, telling the filmmakers "I can’t be involved in this film at all if Arnold is not in it." Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reprising his role as the iconic T-800 while also portraying the human on which the Terminator is modeled, with Cameron telling IGN, "Arnold's back and he is bad and he is a different Terminator than you've seen before."

Cameron had also strongly recommended that Linda Hamilton reprise her role as Sarah Connor. "Fans are going to want to see her again, and they’re going to want to see what time and dealing with these tragic futures has done to her.” He described Sarah as hardened by and stronger from her experiences, and said Linda "is there to kick ass and take names." Cameron stressed that Sarah is important in passing the baton to the new characters, and that "it's a very female-centric film."

Switching franchises, IGN asked Cameron if he could give Neil Blomkamp a call about reviving his Alien plans, and surprisingly Cameron responded "I'm working on that, yeah." As fans may remember, Blomkamp was working on an Alien 5 film that would have served as a direct sequel to Cameron's universally acclaimed Aliens (1986), only for Ridley Scott to shut those efforts down.

What Cameron's potential involvement in the future of the Alien franchise would mean regarding Ridley Scott's plans to finish his prequel storyline, - plans that were officially put on hold following the underperformance of 2017's Alien: Covenant - s unclear. But with Cameron now one of the biggest filmmakers operating under Disney, his word will likely hold a bit of influence.

Would you be excited to see Neil Blomkamp return to his Alien 5 plans with James Cameron's involvement? Are you looking forward to seeing Terminator: Dark Fate and the new direction Tim Miller and Cameron have taken the franchise?
