The sixth and potentially final installment in the “Terminator” franchise from producer James Cameron has a new title from Paramount. The film will be called “Terminator: Dark Fate,” an individual with knowledge of the film tells TheWrap.

Though he’s directing the “Avatar” films, Cameron is heavily involved in this film that reunites Arnold Schwarzenegger with Linda Hamilton, the original Sarah Connor, and it is the first time the two have been on screen together since “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”

While the plot for the film is unknown, Cameron has promised that it will have a sense of closure to it and align more closely with the events of the second film, as opposed to the subsequent sequels.

“Deadpool” director Tim Miller directs and is credited with writing the story alongside David Ellison. Josh Friedman, David S. Goyer, Billy Ray and Justin Rhodes all wrote the screenplay.

Also starring in “Terminator: Dark Fate” are Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes, who appeared in a first look photo opposite Hamilton.

“Dark Fate” opens in theaters from Paramount and Skydance on Nov. 1. It will open on a busy fall weekend opposite wide releases “Charlie’s Angels” from Universal, the Edward Norton crime drama “Motherless Brooklyn” from Warner Bros. and the animated “Arctic Dogs” from Entertainment Studios.
