RUMOR : Will James Cameron write, produce & direct TERMINATOR 6?


A day ago we were contacted by someone who said they are related to a key member involved in the T6 discussions we are about to describe to you.  We were asked not to release their name, nor relation, nor reprint any of their message to us. This person said they contacted because we were the largest supportive fan base for “Terminator Genisys”, liked our petition to continue the Genisys storyline and wanted to share with us what he or she knew about what was currently going on behind-the-scenes.

Please Note: What you are about to read has NOT been collaborated by Skydance nor James Cameron and none of these claims have been validated.  So what you are about to read must strictly be treated as a RUMOR, and only as a rumor.

Now here is the scoop:

After “loosely being attached” to the development of “Terminator Genisys”, when James Cameron informed the media last year that he felt the story told in ‘Terminator 5’ had “reinvigorated” the franchise, he wasn’t kidding.  We were informed that Cameron’s Terminator “creative juices” are flowing again and he is apparently reconsidering re-joining the franchise that he closed the book on so many years ago after T2.  This re-acclimation to his beloved creation was apparently a direct result to “getting his feet wet” with Genisys, overseeing the 3D conversion of the 1991 classic “T2: Judgment Day” (to be released this year) and (interestingly) inspired by the worldwide critical acclaim the 70 year old film veteran George Miller received after returning to his “Mad Max” roots.  We were told the deal that would likely be made between Skydance and Cameron would hand over complete control of T6 to Jim.  Cameron would produce, direct and write the next installment (along with an unnamed co-writer).

When we inquired why wouldn’t Cameron just wait until the reported copyrights revert back to him in 2019 (so he could reap more of the financial benefits), it was explained to us that the beneficiary changes only impacted North American rights and is more complicated than it seems.  When we asked does Cameron’s possible ‘re-engaging with the Terminator franchise’ have direct correlation to the new “Avatar” film release date cancellation (with no rescheduling), we were told “possibly”.  Our scooper could not confirm what (if any) of the story threads or cast from “Terminator Genisys” would be carried over to Cameron’s new film but if the deal indeed does happen, we should expect it to be officially announced this summer during the 25th Anniversary of “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”.

Once again, please be aware that the internet is full of misinformation. Anyone can make an unsubstantiated claim about anything these days, so until any of this information is collaborated, please treat this strictly as a RUMOR only.  But what an exciting rumor indeed!  We’ll be back!

We have asked Skydance and James Cameron via their Twitter accounts if they can confirm any of these rumors. We’ll update you if we receive any information.

  1. I don’t think it’s true nor it has anything to do with “Avatar 2 Trilogy,” but if it’s anything true, then with the time which will be spent with Avatar and Battle Angel (good luck with that), T6 might literally be release concurrently with in-story date of final battle of the war against machine!
