Is it looking likely that Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear in Terminator Salvation in some form, and now we have news that another key character could also be making an appearance…in some form. Linda Hamilton, who played Sarah Connor in the original Terminator films, told MTV:
“We are talking,” Hamilton told us during a wide-ranging conversation for her Movie Badass selection. “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.”
News of Hamilton’s likely involvement jibes with word coming out of last weekend’s New York Comic-Con, where “Salvation” director McG intimated that her participation in the reboot is essential. “She’s the greatest,” he said of Sarah Connor, adding that as an integral figure in franchise mythology, “one can imagine she plays an important role.”
I hope these negotiations go well as having Linda doing a voiceover would be great, especially for linking Terminator Salvation into the Terminator universe.
