"As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return," Cameron reportedly said of Hamilton's return. "There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys ... but there isn’t an example of that for women."
Director Tim Miller, behind the breakout superhero film "Deadpool," is slated to direct the Terminator reboot, which is said to be a sequel to 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day." It will reportedly act as a "passing of the baton" film to new characters.
Hamilton starred in the first two Terminator films as Sarah Connor, a waitress who was being hunted down by a killer robot from the future, played by Schwarzenegger. Connor soon learns she is the mother of the human resistance leader in a future taken over by machines.
No planned release date or filming scheduled has been announced.
