'It is fast white-knuckle ride'
London: Filmmaker James Cameron says the upcoming installment of the Terminator franchise, Dark Fate, is more grim and gritty than its predecessors, and they are hoping to get an R-rating for it.
The 64-year-old director is making a return to the fan-favourite series that he created with the 1984 blockbuster, The Terminator.
The new film, directed by Tim Miller of Deadpool fame, will retcon the events of last three installments.
Cameron, who has produced Dark Fate and also contributed to the story, considers the film to be a direct sequel of 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Femalefirst reported.
"I think, tonally, what makes this a direct sequel to T1 and T2 is as much about the tone as it is about the narrative: It's R rated, it's grim, it's gritty, it's fast, it's intense, it's very linear," the filmmaker said.
"The whole story takes place in 36 hours. It's not this kind of grandiose, complex story. It's just very focused on the characters, it's very now, it's very present and it's just a fast white-knuckle ride," he added.
