James Cameron Wants Linda Hamilton To Be A 60-Year-Old Action Heroine

Linda Hamilton will return as Sarah Connor for the sixth installment in the "Terminator" franchise.

According to an exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter, James Cameron dropped the news at a private event. He touted the "seasoned warrior's" return and noted her importance to "gender and action stars everywhere back then."

But even though Cameron said that, he did recently catch some flak from director Patty Jenkins when he said her flick "Wonder Woman" objectified women.

And now, some people are asking if Cameron can "re-invent the action heroine" as a 60-year-old.

After all, Cameron doesn't seem to have a problem trotting out 70-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger for another go.

The new "Terminator" doesn't have a release date just yet. But sometime after 2019 might be a good guess. That's when Cameron gets his rights back to the franchise.
