Linda Hamilton has confirmed what director McG hinted about last month while showing clips of Terminator Salvation to the press. The director mentioned that he was trying to bring the old Sarah Connor (Hamilton) back for a voiceover in the new series as a set up to what transpires in the new trilogy. While talking to MTV, the actress confirmed the role.
"We are talking"... "I haven't read it yet. I don't know what direction they will go in."
While she awaits the specifics in a script, Hamilton already knows what her role generally would be. "My contribution would be voiceover," she said. "I would probably be very happy to loan my voice depending on what the material is. Wait and see. They're already writing it. We've been negotiating it.
If the deal gets done, her cameo would be alongside stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood and Common. Director McG led production, based on a screenplay by Michael Ferris, John Brancato, Paul Haggis, Jonathan Nolan, Shaun Ryan and Anthony Zuiker.

Plot Summary: In the highly anticipated new installment of "The Terminator" film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
