The new Terminator film will see Linda Hamilton returning as Sarah Connor and she certainly looks the part of a total badass (thanks to a recent set photo by Terminator Fans). Terminator 6 will reportedly be a direct sequel to T2: Judgement Day and it will reportedly ignore every film after that. No details have been released as yet but there are rumours that the film will set the path for new characters, thus deviating from the John Connor narrative we’ve seen in every film. Joining Hamilton is Arnold Schwarzenegger who is reprising his role as the T-100. Terminator 6 arrives in cinemas in November 2019.
New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film Being Developed
Although Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows wasn’t as big as a hit as Paramount Pictures wanted it to be, the studio is still keen on milking the franchise. It’s been reported that a new TMNT film is in the works. However there is some speculation that it could be an entirely new film that will not link back to the previous two films starring Megan Fox. 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film was a massive hit for Paramount, raking in close to USD500 million at the box-office however the 2016 sequel, only managed half that amount.

Jon Bernthal Returns to The Walking Dead
It looks like a fan favourite character will be making his way back to The Walking Dead, despite being killed off in season 2. Jon Bernthal is set to reprise his role as Shane, who met his demise at the hands of both Rick Grimes and then Carl. Bernthal’s return will likely be flashback scene or hallucination, which will no doubt be tied back to Rick (Andrew Lincoln), who is set to depart the show in season 9. Lincoln will not be the only actor leaving the show in the upcoming season. It’s been reported that Lauren Cohen who plays Maggie Rhee will also be leaving the show as well.
