James Cameron Wants To Revamp The ‘Terminator’ Franchise With 3 New Movies

James Cameron Wants To Revamp The 'Terminator' Franchise With 3 New Movies

The first two Terminator movies starring Arnold Schwarzenegger have turned into cult films making phrases like “Hasta la vista, baby” a crucial part of modern pop culture. However, it’s really no secret that James Cameron isn’t a fan of the last Terminator movie, which flopped at the box office and didn’t strike a chord with the critics and viewers alike.

But a new beacon of hope is coming for the saga from Cameron himself. The “King of the World” told News.com.au he wants to revamp the franchise with three new movies! Cameron told the outlet:

“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.”

While the Terminator: Salvation and Terminator: Genisys flicks by David Ellison intended to be a new leaf in the Terminator series, the two filmmakers are joining forces and looking into doing this together when the rights of the film revert to James Cameron next year.

“So I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise and the rights in the U.S. market revert to me under U.S. 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.”

It seems the Terminator will fulfill his final promise to “be back.” However, it can take quite some time before we see a new Terminator movie on the big screen since Cameron has his plate full at the moment with the Avatar sequels.
