Isn’t this the news that all die hard Terminator fans have been waiting for? The one and only Linda Hamilton aka Sarah Connor has given us hope that she may appear in this summer’s Terminator: Salvation. According to MTV Hamilton has confirmed talks between her and the films producers. As we all know, Hamilton declined to appear in the last Terminator, Rise of the Machines because she wasn’t a fan of how her character was written.
“They offered me a part,” she said. “I read it and I knew my character arc was so complete in the first two, and in the third one it was a negligible character. She died halfway through and there was no time to mourn her. It was kind of disposable, so I said no thank you.”
Hamilton must be giving McG’s Terminator the benefit of the doubt. The film’s been in post production since last fall, so Hamilton believes her contribution to the film will be in a more vocal form.
“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.”
I’ve always looked at Linda Hamilton and James Cameron as the be all, end all of Terminator. If either one of them are giving Salvation the time of day the script must not be that bad. McG has emphasized how essential the Sarah Connor character is to the mythos of the Terminator franchise. He stated, “She’s the greatest, one can imagine she plays an important role.” Of course she does!
I’m rooting for Linda to join, what about you?
Are you looking forward to the return of Sarah Connor?
