James Cameron Wants To Make A New ‘Terminator’ Trilogy Happen

Terminator: Genisys

Though James Cameron has his hands full working on those Avatar sequels, he still finds the time to work on other projects. Even if some of those other projects like Battle Angel had to be handed off to a new filmmaker. Well, now you can add a Terminator trilogy to the “will he, won’t he?” list. That’s right, Cameron wants to see a new Terminator trilogy. More on the story below.

Cameron spoke to News.com.au. where he addressed the possibility of reinventing the franchise. He’s currently in talks with Skydance Media’s David Ellison to acquire rights to the franchise:

“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.”

Since time travel plays a huge part of the Terminator franchise, it is very possible that old characters like the T-800 that has been continuously dispatched to the past could be played once again by Arnold Schwarzenegger. And he could then pass off the baton to a newer model or at least a T-800 with a different face.

Recent attempts to reboot the franchise have both ended up in failure. Terminator Salvation tried to be this gritty action sci-fier, while Terminator Genisys tried to rewrite its own history. There were plans to build and expand upon what Genisys was trying to create. However, those plans were scrapped because the film failed to meet their expectations. And though the rights to the film have changed over the years, some rights will revert to Cameron in 2019. So these talks appear to be something that would benefit the two.

Pressing the reset button and bringing in Cameron could prove to be just the thing to put Terminator back on course. But what could be done to get audiences interested in the franchise again, especially since the last two films were met with a negative response? Here’s what Cameron had to say:

“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 (artificial intelligence).”

It’s interesting to see that he is bringing up current events that could possibly be addressed in the film. Considering that technology is rapidly growing, it’s really no surprise that he would introduce those elements into the new trilogy, seeing that none of it existed when the franchise first started out in the 1980s.
