Terminator: Dark Fate Brings Back T2's John Connor Actor, Edward Furlong

Members of the cast will be on hand Thursday to promote the film at San Diego Comic-Con - stay tuned to EW.com for more from that panel.

As the first teaser trailer for the film confirmed, Terminator: Dark Fate is already shaping up to be an original franchise reunion with Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger both returning to play Sarah Connor and the Terminator, respectively. And the panel began with a big surprise: Producer and co-writer (not to mention franchise creator) James Cameron revealed to the audience that Edward Furlong is making his long-awaited return to the franchise with this movie. Hamilton will reprise her role for the first time in almost 30 years. Other actors to take on the role include Nick Stahl (Terminator 3), Christian Bale (Terminator Salvation), and Jason Clarke (Genisys).

The other major bit of news is that Dark Fate will be rated "R".


"The DNA of Terminator is an R-rated movie".

Furlong played Connor in only a single movie; later iterations have recast him depending on how old he was meant to be. While I don't think a Terminator movie necessarily needs to be rated R, but it makes sense since the most successful entries (the first two movies) carried an R-rating.

The news excited devout fans in the house at Hall H, signaling that under director Tim Miller this new vision for the Arnold Schwarzenegger franchise will return to its gritty roots. Sound off in the comments.
