Edward Furlong Returns As John Connor In ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’
Edward Furlong will reprise his role as John Connor in the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate.
Director Tim Miller announced Furlong’s return to the franchise during the first panel in Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Other actors and actresses have portrayed John and Sarah Connor over the years.
Miller said the film will show Sarah Connor dealing with the consequences of her actions in Terminator 2 Judgement Day, where she destroyed Cyberdyne Systems and presumably every trace of Skynet and its army of Terminators.
The upcoming film is said to take place 27 years after Terminator 2: Judgement Day and will have an R-rating, because “fans kind of demanded it in a way.”
The trailer for the film has also been released, which shows Sarah Connor defeating a cyborg. Schwarzenegger is also seen in the trailer, with a gray beard.
There are also two other characters in the film, played by Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes.
Davis plays Grace, a soldier-assassin human-machine hybrid who was sent from the future to protect Dani, played by Reyes. Dani Ramos is a young woman who is targeted by a new advanced Terminator prototype.
