At Nerd Bastards we’re no strangers to weird movie rumors, we deal with them on a daily basis, but this latest tidbit concerning Terminator 5 really boggles the mind.
Comic Book Movie is reporting that, in addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, original Terminator co-stars Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn are also being courted by the film’s producers. No word on exactly what their status is: Are they negotiating? Has the offer been merely extended? Is this for a full-on supporting role, or are they only going to cameo? Who knows.
As I’m sure you know Hamilton and Biehn had pretty pivotal roles in The Terminator. She played Sarah Connor, mother of humanity’s future savior John Connor, and he played Kyle Reese, a soldier from the future sent back in time to protect Sarah, and, inadvertently (by design) father her child. It would seem unlikely that Hamilton and Biehn would be appearing as Sarah and Kyle though, so could something else be afoot?
Naturally. Remember that rumor about Terminator 5 taking place in the 1950s and is about a grizzled old man (Schwarzenegger) who protects Sarah Connor’s parents from an all new, more deadly Terminator played by Dwayne Johnson? Hamilton and Biehn be recast in this provocative new setting too, although they may still be too old to play Sarah Conner’s parents. Of course all this is merely rumor, and everything about the production of Terminator 5, with the exception of its existence, should be taken with a grain of salt.
But what do you say Bastards, want to see a Terminator reunion of Schwarzenegger, Hamilton and Biehn? Sound off below.
