Hold Your Horses – The Terminator Might Be Back After All



The Terminator

It was only yesterday that we reported the supposed end of The Terminator franchise. The information came from an insider at Paramount, who explained that due to the box office failure of Genisys, the studio declined to pick up its option for a new film with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke.

With that news, it seemed like the final nail had been driven into the coffin for the sci-fi action series that began in 1984.

However, it seems that this news came prematurely as David Ellison, CEO of Skydance Media (who produced Genisys), explains that an announcement regarding the series will be coming later this year. He also said that he foresees the franchise having “…an incredibly bright future,” which he told Collider.

The full quote from Ellison reads:

“I will say we have resolved the future of the franchise and believe me its [sic] an incredibly bright future. I think where it’s going will be the continuation of what the fans really wanted since T2. We have something this year that we will be announcing for the franchise. It’s something we’re incredibly excited about and we think is the direction it needs to head.”

Terminator 3 wasn’t fantastic but there were some really exciting moments in it (that car chase) and Salvation had an interesting atmosphere and feel to it that hadn’t been injected into the series to that point. Genisys, however, was an awful movie that made no sense and was laden with issues. Here’s hoping that a new entry will do something fresh and exciting.

Also, feel free to drop Schwarzenegger. Skynet is the real threat to humanity, so give me a movie that makes me feel like his Terminator character was nothing but a pawn.
