Gale Anne Hurd, producer and co-writer of the 1984 science fiction classic “The Terminator” (as well as executive producer of both “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” and ex-wife to Cameron himself) revealed her history with the Terminator franchise might not be over!
According to digitalspy.com, when asked if she and Cameron would ever return to the franchise that kickstarted both her and James Cameron’s career at a screening of her television series “Fear the Walking Dead”, Gale Anne Hurd had this to say about it:
“Jim Cameron has an exclusive deal with 20th Century Fox, my deal is with Universal, so [right now] there’s no collaborating.
“On the other hand, we’re still close friends – and I hosted him and his son on the set of The Walking Dead. One day, you never know – maybe one day we’ll get Terminator back.”
It sounds like to us that both James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd has.. at the very least.. discussed a return to the Terminator franchise. But will it become a reality? Can they work out a side deal without violating their exclusive studio contracts? Are those rumors true that James Cameron will “be back” and return to the director’s chair one more time, either with Skydance or without (once he reacquires the Terminator rights in 2019)?
