News Cameron Plans to Reinvent the ‘Terminator’ Franchise With a Trilogy Published 1 year ago on July 24, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Back in January we heard that James Cameron was planning on returning to the Terminator franchise when he will regain certain rights in 2019. Not only does Cameron want to produce a new installment with David Ellison of Skydance Media, but he hopes to get Deadpool‘s Tim Miller on board to direct as well. Talking with Australian website News.com, Cameron stated that he plans on creating a new Terminator trilogy as a producer. “The question is — has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up?,” says Cameron. “Can it still have relevance now where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films. We live in a world of predator drones and surveillance and big data and emergent AI (artificial intelligence).” “So I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise and the rights in the US market revert to me under US copyright law in a year and a half so he and I are talking about what we can do. Right now we are leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it.” “We’ll put more meat on the bones if we get past the next couple of hurdles as and when we announce that.” Cameron admits that he doesn’t “have a lot of respect” for the sequels that followed his Terminator films. There’s still a few issues to sort out before the deal is closed, so fingers crossed it works out. Stay tuned for more on this as we get it.
