It looks like the currently untitled sixth “Terminator” film is locking in filming dates.
The project is set to bring back both original stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger and involve James Cameron in a significant creative capacity for the first time since “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”. Cameron, however, won’t direct. That job is going to “Deadpool” helmer Tim Miller who co-created the story with Cameron.
Today, TerminatorFans has uncovered a casting notice and Omega Underground has added to the report with both outlets indicating the project will begin shooting in May, and not March as previously rumored. Filming is expected to continue through to November and will take place in the U.K., Spain, and Budapest.
The casting is for the key role of Dani Ramos, a young woman in her early 20s from Mexico City and has grown up in a working-class neighborhood. More street-smart than book smart, the character will serve as the main human lead character who could carry the franchise from here on out.
Like this year’s “Halloween,” it’s expected this entry will ignore the events of the previous three sequels – serving instead as a follow-up to T2.
