The Terminator Saga Continues as a PG-13 Rated Animated Feature – Terminator 3000

Hasn’t anyone learned anything from the flaccid Terminator: Salvation? You cannot take decidedly R-rated material, dumb it down with big action sequences to try and hide the fact that said Terminators aren’t killing anyone, and expect it to be embraced by the fanbase — the majority of which are in their thirties or older by now judging from when the original came out.

But that’s not stopping Hanover House, who announced today that they have entered into a development venture with Vancouver-based Red Bear Entertainment for Terminator 3000, envisioned as a $70 million budgeted, 3D animated feature film based on the characters and situations introduced in the original Terminator feature.

The story details for Terminator 3000 are being kept under close wraps, but the writers and production team have a stated goal of minimizing violence in order to obtain a PG-13 level of material.

Hannover House and Red Bear Entertainment will release details of the production timing, financing, and principal production personnel later this year in advance of a proposed January, 2011 start.

Someone please … terminate me. Thanks, I’ll wait.

    SPAWN the Animated Series: SPAWN-“Soup Kitchen Volunteer”

    Episode 1: Spawn helps the local fire department rescue a little girls kitty from a tree. Spawn signs up to volunteer at the local homeless shelters soup kitchen. Spawn politely asks a playground bully to stop picking on the school nerd and explains how that type of action could really hurt someones “feelings”.

        It’s like when Robocop was re-programmed with all those directives in Robocop 2.

    God, this interests me even less than Salvation did. On the bright side, at least McG isn’t involved so at least it…Oh hell, I’ve got nothing.

    If they were going to go animated, the least they could have done is something along the lines of Hellboy: Animated which not only kept true to the franchise but was also pretty damn dark and violent at times. Sounds like they’re just going the easy route and lopping the balls off the franchise though.

    I didn’t even bother with Salvation and I won’t waste my time on this crap either.

  • Terminal

    They finally did it. They finally turned the Terminator in to a pussy.

    Oh Lord… this sounds awful. A Terminator movie with toned down violence makes me shake my head in shame. I wish that the franchise was put in bed and there are no further films ever made if this is what we’re going to get.
