Tim Miller's TERMINATOR Reboot Circles McKenzie Davis

Deadpool helmer Tim Miller and Terminator franchise mainstay James Cameron are lining up a 2018 production schedule for the new Terminator movie opening next year. For this, Justin Kroll at Variety has it on good terms that The Martian and Blade Runner 2049 actress McKenzie Davis is in discussions to partake on the female incarnation of the time-traveling cybernetic killer from the future.

Cameron's involvement has imbued the film's standing as a direct sequel from the 1992 blockbuster, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, whose original franchise stars, Linda Hamilton and title actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, are also returning to reprise their roles. Casting for human roles next to Hamilton's iconic Sarah Connor currently remain pending as production dates are set for June through middle of October with a July 26, 2019 release in tow.

Cameron is producing with David Ellison whose Skydance is also financing the film. Billy Ray is overseeing a script polish from an original story by Miller, Cameron and Ellison.
