Rumor: Linda Hamilton Returning for More Terminator?
It seems as if the only news worth reporting this week are rumors. Yesterday we had the crazy Two-Face rumor originating from Aaron Eckhart at the Golden Globes. Today we have another rumor regarding Terminator Salvation and McG's upcoming trilogy. While we're all excited to see whether McG has successfully rebooted the Terminator franchise (or not), I think it's best we wait until May to see the movie before we start making guesses about who is or who isn't in it. We're familiar with the on-going Arnold Schwarzenegger rumors, so how about throwing Linda Hamilton into the rumor mill, too?
This rumor comes from ComingSoon, who also attended the special presentation held yesterday in New York City for Terminator Salvation. In their chat with McG afterward, the director said that one option they came up with for the opening of the movie would be to have Sarah Connor do a voiceover. From there, ComingSoon spins it into a rumor with no real facts. We know Linda Hamilton played Sarah Connor in the first two Terminator movies, but that doesn't mean they actually need her to do the voiceover, although I admit it would be cool to hear. Maybe they can convince her to record just a quick voiceover?
As all die-hard Terminator fans know, if they keep progressing into the future, eventually they'll discover time travel in order to address the stories in the first three movies, where the original Arnold T-800 was sent back in time. McG said that "time travel has yet to be explored" but that it would be one of the themes of the next movie after Terminator Salvation. That could mean we'll eventually see the story where Kyle Reese must go back in time to save Sarah Connor and father John Connor. This is getting a bit confusing, but the point is, Linda Hamilton could be someone they're going after. Is this too crazy to be true?
