With the upcoming fourth film Terminator Salvation getting prepped to hit the big screen on Memorial Day there's some more rumors online that mom Sarah Connor may be appearing in the new film one way or another and that Linda Hamilton may be coming back to the role. Back in August, this rumor appeared but little more has been said on it until now.

While director McG didn't come out and reveal the Hamilton or Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo rumors at his special roadshow event on Monday night, CS' Edward Douglas does pass along that the director is thinking of doing a recap of the first three movies which could include a voiceover by Sarah Connor and that voiceover may be played by Hamilton or by a new actress who sounds like her.

They also asked the director if Warner Bros. and the production crew plan to direct the sequels back-to-back. To see the answer, click here.

In other Terminator-related news, IDW Publishing has sent out a press release about a comic book prequel to the fourth film. 

Terminator: Salvation Movie Prequel" is written by Dara Naraghi ("Lifelike") with art by Alan Robinson and cover by Nick Runge.

The year is 2018. With John Connor as the voice of the resistance, the scattered remnants of humanity find themselves united against their common enemy: Skynet and its Terminators. Through a patchwork system of radio transmitters, hacked satellite phones, and encrypted computer networks, resistance leader Elena Maric in Detroit, and Nigerian mining engineer Bem Aworuwa, have formed an unlikely friendship and drawn up battle plans to take the fight to the Terminators!

Like the film they tie-in to, IDW's Terminator comics will push the timeline of the franchise past Judgment Day and into all new territory, allowing for stories and visuals previously only hinted at on film. The series will take the core concept of the Terminator films and give them a more global scope showing not just John Connor, but other humans who are either trying to survive or are actively part of the resistance. Writer Dara Naraghi says he was interested in exploring new themes—not just the action of a monumental battles, but also the game of basic survival the characters find themselves facing in such a war torn and desolate future.

"All over the world, people find themselves having to band together regardless of what their previous station in life or prejudices might have been," Naraghi explained.

I would love to see Linda Hamilton make a cameo in slvation, probably in either a flashback or dream sequence.

I doubt Hamilton would be back. Remember, she refused doing T3 because Cameron wasn't involved. I don't see that changing now that McG's running the show. The Governator, I could see doing a cameo.

I'd love to see Arnold.

Hobbs 1/13/2009 1:05:18 PM

I thought she didn't do T3 because they didn't offer her a part?  I could be wrong on that but I thought her divorce from Cameron was ugly one so I would be surprised if she turned it down because of no Cameron.

I know the guy that played Reece said he wouldn't do it because of no Cameron. Was that Mike Biehn?

All these rumors...we'll know in 4 months...well, actually you guys will know. I still don't want to see it, I'll wait for its other title to come out this year, Transformers 2.

Someone sounds bitter???

Linda Hamilton is like 87 years old so they better get in touch with the Benjamin Button special effects crew to make her look like her 1992 self if McG is planning on using her for flashbacks.

Did you guys click on the link?  It says time travel hasn't happened yet in Terminator Salvation.  I wonder how such a huge part of this franchise gets brought up for the first time.  Maybe that new guy is the one that brings it up.

My Aunt can be her double since she looks like Hamilton and is athletic like her lol

IDW is an awesome comic publisher with some really terrifc artists, they have adapted Land of the Dead into a comic adaptation and their other books are equally good.

as for Hamilton coming back, dont hold your breath, if she does come back, just smile and enjoy the surprise... by the way, i thought part 4 was already in the can and they were plotting part 5? which movie would her cameo be in?

HOBBS if you know the guy that played Reece, then how come you dont know his name? (and yes it is Michael Biehn) i'm not calling you out, but it sounds weird when you say you know him but dont know his name... LOL

I think what Hobbs was saying is that he knew Biehn said that, not that he knew Biehn.

Humans forgetting prejudice and banding together to fight killer robots.  Isn't this what the "I have a dream" speech was really about?
