New Terminator Sequel

Against all odds, the Terminator franchise is being kept alive thanks to producer James Cameron. The crippled sci-fi film series now has a home at 20th Century Fox, and Cameron is hoping to spark the beginning of a new Terminator trilogy, complete with original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reprising their roles as the T-800 killing machine and Sarah Connor respectively.

The new Terminator sequel already had a team of writers on board that included David Goyer (Man of Steel), Justin Rhodes (Green Lantern Corps.), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel) and Josh Friedman (Avatar 2), but now they’ve added another writer to the process. The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray has been brought on board to give the script one final polish. While we don’t know the story of this new Terminator sequel yet, some details on a couple new characters have emerged. Read More »

how Terminator 6 will work

He’ll be back. We definitely know that much about actor Arnold Schwarzenegger when it comes to James Cameron and Tim Miller‘s untitled Terminator 6, and we know the film will reunite him with Terminator and T2 star Linda Hamilton, who will be reprising her role of Sarah Connor once again.

But in a new interview, Schwarzenegger reveals the filmmakers’ approach to the upcoming sequel, and it all boils down to simplifying the franchise’s convoluted timeline as much as possible.

Terminator 6

Okay, okay – so the killer robots in the Terminator movies aren’t technically killer robots, they’re cybernetic organisms. (“Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton,” as one helpfully explains in T2.) But those time-traveling death machines must look like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a reason, right?

That’s a topic that’s been on James Cameron‘s mind lately, and in a new interview, he explains how Terminator 6 – the movie he’s producing that has Deadpool’s Tim Miller supposedly lined up to direct – will explain exactly why the T-800 models look like a muscle-bound Austrian man. Read his explanation below.

A sequel to Terminator: Genisys is dead. But James Cameron and Deadpool director Tim Miller are supposedly teaming up for a Terminator 6, so the franchise itself hasn’t been terminated yet. Genisys star Emilia Clarke won’t be coming back for more, and even Jai Courtney says it’s time to hang it up, but now original series star Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’s not finished making Terminator movies. Man, I’m starting to feel like Sarah Connor trapped in an insane asylum over here. Come with me if you want to learn the latest about this on-again, off-again franchise.

In a new interview, the filmmaker teases how Terminator 6 might be relevant in today’s world.

terminator 6

Depending on who you ask, the sequel to Terminator: Genisys either died over a year ago or it has just been on life support as everyone involved assessed whether or not it was time to pull the plug. But let’s face the facts: it’s not a good look when even the young stars of your newly rebooted series think it’s time to let go.

So yes, the news that Terminator 6 is in the works is a surprise and yes, the news that The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day director James Cameron is coming back to “godfather” the film and wants Deadpool director Tim Miller to direct is an even bigger surprise.

Terminator Genisys

Terminator Genisys was supposed to launch a whole new era for the series. It was planned as the first in a trilogy, with an additional TV series planned somewhere down the line. Instead, it underperformed at the box office, got panned by critics, and generally disappointed fans. It wasn’t too surprising, then, when word got out a few weeks later that the future of the franchise could be in jeopardy.

But much like the Terminator himself, the Terminator series isn’t easily stopped. In a recent interview, star Arnold Schwarzenegger suggested a sixth Terminator film could still be coming.  Read More »

Terminator sequels

Paramount Pictures and Skydance were really hoping that Terminator: Genisys would be a hit to reinvigorate the popular but struggling sci-fi franchise originally launched by James Cameron in 1984. But despite endorsement by the Avatar filmmaker, the flick hasn’t really impressed fans or critics, and with just $278 million at the worldwide box office so far (only just over $81 million of that from the US), it’s not nearly as successful as the studio hoped.

Way before the film even hit theaters, Paramount had set dates for two Terminator sequels to arrive on May 19th, 2017, and June 29th, 2018, with the assumption that they would be shot back-to-back. But now the future of the Terminator franchise is uncertain.
