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.

You can check out the trailer here.

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.

Terminator Salvation will hit theaters May 21, 2009.

I am surprised they don't have it written with only a few months to go, but VO work can be done quickly and easily edited in. I am pumped for this movie. I think it is going to deliver the goods.

Movie will make a lot of bank but it will suck beyond belief and McChicken will become the next Uwe Boll.

Is this film sharing continuity with T3?  I recall Hamilton not doing that one because she didn't like the direction they were taking her character (which led to them killing her off with cancer).

From what i have heard the T3 continuity is out the door for the most part, i think they maybe taking certain things form it (Catherine Bruster) and maybe somethign else. Not 100% on that.

Not sure why people keep knocking McG, i mean he directed two crappy movies, they werent even that bad and no where near comparable to Uwe Boll. I think the movies stunk becasue of the actresses and the subject matter. Charlies angels really isnt all the deep and interesting. besides they were going for cheesey from the start. Terminator is a whole different whole different world and subject matter. What i have seen so far has made me VERY excited to see Terminator Salvation. If James Cameron and Arnold trust him and Linda Hamilton isnt avoiding it like a bag full pf plague rats then i trust him. I will be there opening night. I am counting down the days.

Perhaps it will follow the series.

I don't know about continuity with T3 specifically, but John Connor does say in the first teaser, "this is not the future my mother warned me about," or words to that effect. I took that as pretty much a blanket statement to cover their asses against any continuity gaffes by saying that something changed and the timeline was altered.

Am I the only one who noticed that Jonathan Nolan worked on the screenplay? If the guy who co-wrote TDK was involved with the script, then this film has a chance.

Wiseguy 2/20/2009 11:54:23 AM

fft, I think you're right. And by traveling back in time the future is always in flux. Everytime someone time travels something changes and another alternate future becomes part of reality.

I look at it like the FF comics. The future isn't a straight line but many different ones with different variations depending on people's actions. Which is how we can explain the films and the tv show and their differewnt storylines.

At least that works for me.

I'm a hater on this movie Darknight so you aren't going to get anything positive out of me on this...I don't like what they are doing with this movie from PG-13 rating to the cheesey special effects they have shown so far...I keep going back and forth on that Transformer in the movie.  The only thing I like about it is that Nolan was a co-writer of the script...but that could be a problem too. For all we know he wrote 10 pages of it and they are calling him co-writer to sucker people in who were huge TDK fans. 

Don't lead too much into Cameron...he hasn't given it his endorsement.  In fact all I know about it is that McChicken called Cameron to say hi or something and all of a sudden everyone is like "HEY JAMES CAMERON gave McChicken all his secrets!"  Besides everyone in these blogs seems to hate T3 and that was a movie Cameron said he liked or the fact that Hollywood people rarely rip other Hollywood people even if they deserve it.

If it's a first class movie I'll be more than happy to offer my apology to Uwe..er...McChicken.  I think they should have just left it alone after the 3rd one.
