If you're an avid TV or movie fan, you'll notice that nostalgia is ruling the day. The trend of revisiting old properties has proven itself quite profitable, so it seems like just about any property could return for a new installment. And one franchise that is getting in on the action is the sci-fi series Terminator, which is currently developing its fifth sequel to the classic 1984 film. While Terminator Genisys came out just a few years ago, a new sequel is being planned with OG franchise favorites like James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton.
And now another classic Terminator actor has expressed interest in Terminator 6: Robert Patrick, aka the terrifying T-1000. When asked if he'd return to the franchise at this weekend's NY Comic-Con (via Screen Rant), Patrick answered with a resounding,
Well, he certainly didn't keep his hand close to the chest on that one. It looks like the Terminator franchise's best villain is down to clown for another installment. Now we just have to see if the powers that be are interested in seeing Robert Patrick back in the role.
Robert Patrick was the main villain of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Perhaps the strong installment in the entire franchise, Patrick's T-1000 was a constant stalking force throughout Sarah, John, and The Terminator's mission to stop the cause of the robotic apocalypse. The T-1000 model was a shape shifting mechanized killing machine, who was left virtually unharmed by bullets and other bodily harm. He could also transform into other people, meaning that he had the potential to be anywhere, at anytime.
While Robert Patrick's signature character was a mostly silent figure, he was pretty awesome and scary during Terminator 2. No matter how many shells he was hit with or how disfigured his body became, he would continue running toward John Connor in an attempt to kill the young boy, and therefore stop the human revolution before it begins. The robot ended up being destroyed in the film's third act, and Patrick never returned to the franchise.
Of course, Robert Patrick's age may be an issue, as the actor is currently 58 years old and will therefore not be able to move quite as well. But considering how a young Arnold Schwarzenegger was created through CGI in the last film, I guess nothing is off the table.
Terminator 6 doesn't currently have a release date or official title, but CinemaBlend will continue updating you as more details become public. In the meantime, check out our 2018 release list to plan your trips to the movies in the New Year.
