James Cameron has been working on making his four Avatar sequels for the past few years, but he also has his hand in producing other movies as well. One of these is the latest Terminator revival, and Cameron has revealed the working title of the project — Terminator: Dark Fate.
“We’re calling it, Terminator: Dark Fate,” Cameron told Yahoo Entertainment. “That’s our working title right now.”
Cameron also said he refuses to take credit for the film because it’s all director Tim Miller’s show. He even joked he is more of a supporting player in this sequel.
“Tim’s a very willful and opinionated director, and he’s got his own ideas for the film. I’m kind of like the Pips — he’s Gladys,” Cameron said.
James Cameron is the man who created the Terminator franchise and directed both Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. However, he obviously has no problems handing over the reins to Miller, who previously directed the first Deadpool movie. In a recent interview discussing Alita: Battle Angel, Cameron said that it is in good hands because “it’s Tim Miller.”
The new Terminator movie will ignore everything after T2, wiping the three sequels out of existence, including 2003’s Terminator: Rise of the Machines, 2009’s Terminator: Salvation and 2015’s Terminator: Genisys. Cameron did not direct those last three films and the new Terminator will start after the events of his second movie in the series, where there was still some kind of hope for the future. However, as the working title indicates, the hope may be bleak.
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, the untitled Terminator revival stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes, and Diego Boneta. The film is scheduled for release on November 1.
