Hot on the heels of new plot and character details in the next instalment of James Cameron’s time-travelling AI apocalypse comes a release date: Terminator 6 — or Terminator 3: For Real This Time, or whatever it will be called — is coming out on July 26, 2019.
Now an uncomfortable question. Arnold is going to be 71 years old when this shoots. How do you get around that fact?
CAMERON: You don’t have to get around it. The beauty of it is: He’s a cyborg. And so, the org part is on the outside, meaning organism. And Reese says it in the first film: “They sweat. They have bad breath.” Because they were supposed to be infiltration units, so there’s this idea that flesh sort of sheaths over a metal endo-skeleton. So that would age normally. So, obviously he’s one that’s been in action and operation for a long time. And that’s all I want to say about the actual story part of it.
Elsewhere at The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron said the following about his ridiculous film-making schedule: “The way I look at it is, I’m doing Avatar by day, Battle Angel by night and Terminator on the weekend.” You can read more details about Terminator 6‘s development right here.
