Blade Runner 2049's Mackenzie Davis Possible Candidate For New Terminator Film

Mackenzie Davis, best known for her work in Black Mirror and Blade Runner 2049 is in early negotiations to star in new Terminator film.

If selected, Davis will join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton in the new project, with Deadpool director Tim Miller at the helm. The movie will be a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

James Cameron in a statement to said, “Can it still have new relevance now where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films? We live in a world of predator drones, and surveillance, and big data, and emergent AI.”

He added, “So, I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise, and the rights in the US market revert to me under US copyright law in a year-and-a-half, so he and I are talking about what we can do. Right now we are leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it. We’ll put more meat on the bones if we get past the next couple of hurdles as and when we announce that.”

It’s unclear if this new instalment in the Terminator series will be replacing or retconning the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which released in 2003.
