Reports are coming in that James Cameron will work with Tim Miller (director of Deadpool) to reboot The Terminator for one more run. The film will bring a “conclusion” to the series which Cameron first introduced in 1984.
Currently the franchise is owned by David Ellison who co-financed the last film, Terminator Genisys. According to Deadline, Ellison “is bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively.”
In 2019 Cameron is set to regain certain rights to the franchise, so we anticipate the release coming after this switch. Cameron directed the first two iconic films, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, before walking away.
Cameron said that while watching the last reboot, Terminator Genisys, I start to see things I recognize. It’s being very respectful of first two films. Then all of the sudden, it just swerves. And now I’m going on a journey. I feel like the franchise has been reinvigorated, like this is a renaissance.”
It is believed that the final film will draw to a close the battle between the human race and Skynet.
When will the film begin recording? Cameron is booked for four Avatar sequels, which will shoot two at a time. More as it comes.
