The sixth installment in the Terminator franchise will be arriving later than originally anticipated.
In September of last year, it appeared that the film was set up to be a summer blockbuster with a July 2019 release date. Paramount announced today that the film has been pushed back to the Friday before Thanksgiving, November 22, 2o19.
The studio quickly squashed any speculation that the date switch is linked to star Arnold Schwarzenegger’s health. The actor underwent emergency surgery just recently but is now doing just fine. Paramount noted that the date change had already been in process prior to Schwarzenegger’s procedure.
While details are still widely unknown about the film, it has been confirmed that this sixth installment will pretty much ignore anything that happened in the franchise since the 1991 sequel, Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Tim Miller (Deadpool) will be directing and will be joined by James Cameron and producers David Ellison and Dana Goldberg. Their vision is to create a trilogy of films during which Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who are both returning to reprise their original roles, pass the proverbial Terminator torch onto a young female lead. In order to do so, they have assembled a team of writers including David Goyer, Josh Friedman, Billy Ray and Justin Rhodes.
