Variety is reporting that rising star Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire, The Martian) will take the lead in Skydance’s new Terminator movie opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, which will begin production this summer. The new film’s director, Tim Miller, had originally eyed Davis to portray Domino in Deadpool 2 before he departed that sequel.

The new Terminator is both set to start a new trilogy of films and also work as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys. In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton will also return to the franchise as a “seasoned warrior” version of Sarah Connor. The new Terminator movie is set to arrive in theaters on July 26, 2019.

James Cameron, who will regain the Terminator rights in 2019, is producing the new film series with David Ellison of Skydance. The filmmaker originally sold the rights to the original film for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with the agreement that he would be allowed to direct The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first film earned $78.4 million worldwide and was topped by Cameron’s highly-acclaimed sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which grossed $519.8 million worldwide.

Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) wrote the most recent draft of the script, which was conceived by Cameron, Miller and Ellison.
