After the franchise flop-fest culminating in Terminator: Genisys, James Cameron is returning to the Terminator franchise to oversee an all-new trilogy of films that would give a proper ending to the Humanity vs. Skynet conflict. We've now learned that another very important piece of the Terminator puzzle is returning. Ladies and Gentlemen, Linda Hamilton—A.K.A. the OG Sarah Connor—is back!
You've already heard about Patty Jenkins' response to James Cameron's criticism of Wonder Woman, but I'd really like to delve. Because looking closely at some of the things Cameron actually said about Jenkins' film, his own films, and "strong independent women," one realizes that Cameron is looking so closely into the mirror that it's obscuring what he sees.
Oh My Stars and Garters
Don't bother pinching yourself. You're awake. This is actually happening. With The Expendables 2
just hitting theaters this weekend, Variety is reporting another Expendables
-type film will feature a cast made up of female action stars. Hit the jump for my reaction and oh yeah, all the details we know so far.
and let it be known
Before he wrote his now-famous book series, A Song of Ice and Fire
, George R. R. Martin
wrote several episodes of the TV series Beauty and the Beast
, which starred Ron Perlman
and Linda Hamilton
. And now that the CW
has announced a reboot
of the series, Martin has weighed in
on the new show, and is a little peeved that he wasn't consulted. And also, he is "not a fan of reboots," and the original cast and crew had been hoping to reunite for a movie. (Non-spoiler spoiler: That is not going to happen.)
