Female Terminator
T2 story idea

Scene description
A conversation with William Wisher, from The Making of Terminator 2 Judgment Day (by Don Shay and Judy Duncan):

Though the shape-changer was always the favorite concept for the film's new villain, Cameron and Wisher explored other possibilities as well. One was Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a dual role as both the good terminator and the bad Terminator. "The biggest disadvantage of that idea was that the bad terminator wouldn't be any bigger or any more deadly than Arnold --because it would be Arnold-- so where was the threat? Another idea we kicked around was that of a female terminator--kind of an 'Arnold versus the Bitch' idea. But that seemed almost comical. So we came back to the original concept of the shape-changer."
