Edward Furlong spoke to ScienceFiction.com about possibly reprising the role of John Connor as an adult in a future Terminator movie, what made T2 great, James Cameron, and future projects.
Its been nearly 30 years since the release of ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’, which is highly regarded as one of the greatest science fiction films of all time, looking back on the film now three decades later, what do you think it is that makes it hold up so well?ScienceFiction.com
Uh… because I’m in it! But really, you know, it’s Jim Cameron man! He’s a genius. I mean all of his movies are really really good. I couldn’t tell you why else, I don’t know man. There’s like a magic thing with that movie, it’s crazy. Even today kids are still coming up to me loving that movie! I haven’t seen it in… I couldn’t tell you. I can’t even remember. But it’s just one of those movies that holds up so well. It’s timeless.Edward Furlong
Do you find it difficult to watch your own work?ScienceFiction.com
Yes, I do. And as I get older it gets harder and harder to watch myself.Edward Furlong
‘T2’ was your first movie gig and launched your entire career, is there anything you would have done differently?ScienceFiction.com
Nothing! Not even the mistakes man. Well… maybe a couple of ’em. Like if I could go back in time I would make a lot more money haha. But really? I wouldn’t take back a thing man.Edward Furlong
The ‘Terminator’ franchise is coming back in a big way later this year with ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’, which brings back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Conner and of course Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800! Would you ever pursue returning to the franchise as an adult John Conner?ScienceFiction.com
Without a doubt! That would be awesome and I think fans would love to see it!Edward Furlong
Can you tell us a bit about some of your upcoming projects?ScienceFiction.com
Honestly? There’s none right now. I was thinking about getting into porn! But really, I’ve been slow this last year and a half working on getting my life back on track and getting sober. Hopefully, things will turn around!Edward Furlong
Are you excited by the idea of John Connor returning in a future Terminator movie like in a sequel to Terminator: Dark Fate, or another reboot (if the film doesn’t capture the hearts of the fanbase)?
