It’s being rumoured that Robert Patrick, the man who brought the T-1000 to life in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, will be coming back to the Terminator franchise. This rumour comes from We Got This Covered’s sources, and they’re adding that he’ll be playing a different version of the T-1000.
It’s not clear whether this return would be in the movie or a TV show. However, there are plenty of Terminator fans that would love to see the actor return to the franchise. It does have to be said that the Terminator franchise is in a pretty bad way at the moment. This is especially the case after Tim Miller’s rather lacklustre Terminator: Dark Fate.
That movie was pretty much panned by critics and people just didn’t go to the cinema to watch it, which was a bit upsetting because I don’t think the film is that bad. I actually thought it was by far the best Terminator movie made since T2, which is a genuine masterpiece. However, it sounds like Paramount Pictures still doesn’t want to give up on the franchise just yet.
Robert Patrick could be about to return to the Terminator franchise in a future project
Robert Patrick is now 62 years old, therefore this new version of T-1000 would be very different to the one we saw in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day. If he were to return, I would have thought that he would be playing someone towards the top of the food chain within Skynet.
He could still be a Terminator, but a different one, which I think would be cool. Or, maybe his T-1000 aged the same way that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator did. However, I’m not sure if people really want to see two men in their sixties go up against one another in a Hollywood blockbuster.
