The ‘baton’ is being passed from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator 2 lead to what appears to essentially be a new female lead. If the following article from Bloody Disgusting is anything to go by.
“Absolutely, yeah. A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,”said Cameron last September. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it. Somewhere across there, and I won’t say where, the baton gets passed, so to speak.”
The casting is for the key role of DANI RAMOS,”A young woman in her early 20s from Mexico City and has grown up in a working-class neighborhood. More street-smart than book smart, the character is said to serve as the main human lead character who could carry the franchise from here on out.” She sounds like the perfect companion to Hamilton’s Sarah Connor.
Looks like the tradition of having John Connor be a useless bitch in the background is going to continue, until the end.
Anyway, let’s get in before someone says it: Sarah Connor was 19 in the original movie. But I trust that was written in good faith.
