Hamilton previously told Variety that she thought that Dark Fate would do justice to the earlier instalments: “I think we’ve done a good job of narrowing down the focus again so it will echo the first two films.”
On reuniting the two leads, Schwarzenegger and Hamilton, producer James Cameron said: “You know, I didn’t work that closely with Linda. She had some concerns about the script. I wound up writing a few pages based on her questions and notes, when they were really just getting into the start of principal photography.
“He wanted things explained, like, ‘Why does the character do this? Why does the character do that?’ I said, ‘Here’s why. Here’s how it works. There are a couple of funny scenes – this is how you’ve got to play them so that it’s not too much, and not too little’.
“He said, ‘OK, I’ve got it. I’ve got it, I’ve got it’. And he went off to Budapest, and did it. So we have a shorthand. He and I have a shorthand.”
