The ‘Terminator‘ Franchise has produced arguably two of the greatest actions films of all time. Sadly, the franchise has also spawned three absolutely abysmal sequels. Leaving many fans wondering if they’ll ever see the once great franchise return to its former glory. The last great ‘Terminator’ film came out in 1991 with ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’ coincidentally that was also the last time director James Cameron was involved in any particularly notable fashion. Sure he’s “produced” some of the sequels since then but it is much more akin to Steven Spielberg producing the ‘Transformers’ films than say, Kevin Feige producing films in the MCU. Though, this could possibly change very soon according to James Cameron himself.
While speaking to Australian outlet News.Com. AU Cameron revealed that he is, in fact, contemplating what a new ‘Terminator’ trilogy would look like. Stating that “the question is – has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up? 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”. Cameron continued on by stating, “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”.
