Linda Hamilton is set to return to the Terminator franchise as Sarah Conner, the waitress-turned-warrior, in a new trilogy with James Cameron and Deadpool‘s Tim Miller behind it. Joining her will be Arnold Schwarzenegger himself with the film serving as a direct sequel to the 1991 blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Cameron will be producing and crafting the new story with Tim Miller helming the first movie as the director.

The franchise has expanded since Judgment Day, including a number of films, comics, novels, and even a short-lived TV show, however, this is the first time in over 25 years that Hamilton’s been involved with it. Cameron, previously married to Hamilton, caused controversy discussing Wonder Woman as a “step backward” for women.

He’s stated he feels the inclusion of a 60-year-old Hamilton could be progressive in terms of female representation in action films. “There are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women,” said Cameron at a private event. ”As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return.”
