Actress Linda Hamilton would be happy to “never return” to “The Terminator” franchise unless she can star in a stripped down smaller film.
Hamilton, 63, returned to the franchise after nearly three decades for “Terminator: Dark Fate” last year (2019), which received strong reviews but disappointed at the box office – putting creator James Cameron’s plans for a trilogy in jeopardy, reports aceshowbiz.com.
She says that she’d be happy to not make another “Terminator” film, but if plans for a new movie go ahead, she said she should be less risky financially, with fewer expensive special effects.
“Something says to me… I don’t know. I would really appreciate maybe a smaller version where so many millions are not at stake. Today’s audience is just so unpredictable. I can’t tell you how many laymen just go, ‘Well, people don’t go to the movies anymore.’ That’s not Hollywood analysis; that just comes out of almost everybody’s mouth,” Hamilton told The Hollywood Reporter.
Claiming she doesn’t think that she’ll return, Hamilton said: “It should definitely not be such a high-risk financial venture, but I would be quite happy to never return. So, no, I am not hopeful because I would really love to be done.”
But, if there were something new that really spoke to me, I am a logical person, and I will always consider viable changes.”
