The Terminator franchise is one of the most popular and most-loved franchise of them all (mostly because of ol’ Arnie) – but that’s because of the first two movies. After that, it all seemed to go downhill. But now Arnie is back and returning with his secret weapon – James Cameron (which means there’s an extremely high chance this one will actually be good).
James Cameron first brought Terminator to life in 1984, after he sold the rights to his script for $1 (yes, ONE dollar!) – but after the second movie, Cameron jumped ship and left his director’s chair for other commitments. But now, after over 30 years, Cameron is looking to buy the rights back, and of course, he’s bringing Arnie back with him.
Arnold confirmed the news at the recent Cannes Film Festival when he spoke to Screen Daily.
It is back. It is moving forward. He [Cameron] has some great ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie.
At the moment, there’s no news on which direction Cameron will go with the new Terminator movie (is it the 6th one now? The 29th movie? The 58th? Oh, who knows?) but the fact that his name is being re-attached with the franchise is one of the most exciting things since we learned there were going to be even more Avatar movies.
You have to admit, Cameron is one busy bee, and we can’t wait to see Arnie back on our screens…
