2015’s Terminator: Genisys may not have been a successful reboot starter, but if we’ve learned anything from Arnold Schwarzenegger… he’ll be back. Deadpool director Tim Miller has taken up the next installment of Terminator coming at the end of the year. Here’s a new behind-the-scenes look at the Terminator 6 cast and crew’s shoot in Hungary:
You’ve heard it from Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, another Terminator is coming! The video from the Hungarian National Film Fund opens with Tim Miller gushing about how great it’s been working in the studio in Budapest. Schwarzenegger then makes an appearance to talk about how he’s worked there before in the late ‘80s but it's improved since then more studios and technology available.
More importantly, as he speaks in one shot, he looks to be filming a scene with an adorable dog. Dogs have a certain significance in the Terminator universe. You may recall that the Resistance used sniffer dogs to identify Terminators. The clip also shows Arnold Schwarzenegger reuniting with Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. Hamilton is returning to play her badass character for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 1991.
The video then turns its appreciation to film producer and Hungarian native Andy Vajna, who served as an executive producer on past projects from the franchise -- including Terminator Salvation and the television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles; he also worked on the second and third Terminator films.
Throughout the video, you can spot some of the other main cast members of Terminator 6 hard at work, such as Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes, who will play two new leads in the upcoming film named Grace and Dani Ramos, respectively. Additionally, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s Gabriel Luna will play the new Terminator, and has been mentored by Arnold Schwarzenegger in preparation.
It’s an exciting little sneak peek at the upcoming film, though it seems to serve more as a commercial for the Hungarian studio they shot at more than anything. It does incite some intrigue from fans and gets us excited for more news to come leading up to the action flick’s November release.
Terminator 6 will ignore the most recent three films -- Rise of the Machines, Salvation, and Genisys -- and move forward the story established by James Cameron in the first two films, which were arguably the strongest of the bunch. Cameron is returning for the first time since the second film as producer and has brought along Linda Hamilton as well, now a “seasoned warrior," reminiscent of Jamie Lee Curtis’ recent return to the Halloween franchise last year.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will be playing T-800 again, and has teased the potential of playing the human character who was the basis of the Terminator prototype, though he might have been throwing us off with ideas.
