Director James Cameron revealed at Edward Furlong is set to return as John Connor for Terminator: Dark Fate. The announcement came Friday at the film's Hall H panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Unable to be in San Diego for the pop culture convention, Cameron appeared via a video message from the set of his current Avatar sequel to announce Furlong's addition to the Dark Fate cast. "How honored are we at Terminator that we get to be the kick-off here," he said.
Furlong played Resistance fighter John Connor in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
The panel also officially announced Dark Fate will be rated R. "It's officially R-rated", Miller said about the film. "and it's because the fans kind of demanded it." "The DNA of Terminator is an R-rated fucking movie," he went on, "to not do it R felt disingenuous to the source material. I got so many takes of Linda saying 'fuck.' It's amazing."
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta. The film opens Nov. 1.
