James Cameron announces at the San Diego Comic-Con that Edward Furlong will once again resume his role as John Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate!
It looks like we are to be sold from the beginning by Terminator: Dark Fate, as the movie not only boasts the return of Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor, but from the looks of it the actress will not be the only one to return to the front of the stage once again as Edward Furlong, aka John Connor in Terminator 2: The Last Judgment, will also be part of it as well! This was just announced James Cameron during the panel dedicated to the film at the SDCC!
Although this actor himself has played John Connor only once on screen, the character has come back several times in various films of the franchise. This was seen in 2003 during Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines as Nick Stahl, in 2009 during Terminator Salvation this time portrayed by Christian Bale, and finally in 2015 in Terminator Genisys where he was played by Jason Clarke.
Movie synopsis: Present day in Mexico. Dani Ramos, 21, works on an assembly line in a car factory. She sees her life turned upside down when she suddenly finds herself confronted by two strangers: on one side Gabriel, a Terminator machine of the most evolved, indestructible and protean, a “Rev-9”, coming from the future to kill her; on the other Grace, a genetically augmented super-soldier sent to protect her. Embarking on a breathtaking chase through the city, Dani and Grace owe their salvation only to the intervention of the dreaded Sarah Connor, who, with the help of a mysterious source, has been tracking Terminators for decades. Determined to join this unknown ally in Texas, they set off, but the Terminator Rev-9 pursues them relentlessly, as do the police.
From the casting lineup, Terminator: Dark Fate will provide the opportunity to find Linda Hamilton reprise the role of Sara Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the fan favorite T-800. Gabriel Luna (Ghost Rider in the Agents of SHIELD series ) will play a new Terminator. The casting will also include Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Diego Boneta (Titan) and Natalia Reyes.
Terminator: Dark Fate will be released on October 23rd at the movies.
