Last week there was talk of Linda Hamilton making an appearence in Terminator Salvation, however that was speculation and nobody really knew if she would make an appearance as Sarah Connor or not. More recent rumours have suggested a photograph of Sarah Connor would be used in the film. Well, yesterday TheArnoldFans contacted Hamilton’s agent and got this response:
…we just got off the phone with Linda Hamilton’s agent on Monday, August 11th. The original Sarah Connor star has not been contacted at all for any “Terminator Salvation” offers nor for her rights of her Polaroid to be used in the film. We even asked if Hamilton was contacted to lend her voice for narration. I think it’s safe to say Linda will NOT be back. Sarah Connor only lives on through her son, John.
Linda’s agent told us it was her belief that Hamilton would need to be paid by WB but the film company has not yet contacted them. “I can’t give an answer and until we’re approached, we have no idea,” she told us before asking us many questions about where all of these rumors came from. Nothing but a rumor.
If they plan on using an image of Sarah Connor in the film it could mean that Hamilton may not be contacted until the post production stages, so there is a chance Hamilton may appear. Although, I’d rather not know as it could ruin a surprise. Damn movie news websites and blogs!
