Last night at the Paramount Theatre in Los Angeles, California, the creator of the Terminator franchise James Cameron sat on stage with his friend and “Deadpool” director Tim Miller to discuss their future plans for an untitled new Terminator film we like to call Terminator 6. While the majority of the bullet points were covered within the Hollywood news feed… Linda Hamilton returns, Tim Miller directs, James Cameron produces (all reported HERE)… there was a bombshell involving Arnold Schwarzenegger that was all but ignored by the media. Luckily for Terminator fans however, one of our Army was actually in sitting in attendance and here is his report:
First it was “Hasta La Vista” Paramount Pictures. Now, it’s “I’m back!” After a long running partnership between Skydance and Paramount Pictures was seemingly coming to a close this year (freeing up Skydance to shop movie projects to any studio in the world), Skydance decided to sign a new deal with… you guessed it.. Paramount Pictures! And they are bringing James Cameron’s new Terminator trilogy with them.
Hot off the heels of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s reveal to the world that Terminator 6 will start shooting “in the beginning of next year“, in another interview, Arnold has just revealed the precise month they will begin filming T6!
What an exciting time! As we wait for an announcement soon from David Ellison at Skydance in regards to his and James Cameron’s plans for Terminator 6 , it appears actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has partially ‘let the cat out of the bag’! Per our friends at TheArnoldFans.com, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger made some exciting reveals about the next film in the Terminator franchise, including the plan to start filming the beginning of next year, early in 2018!
Well now it’s getting exciting Terminator fans! The “News Corp Australia Network” (NCAN) had an opportunity to sit down with the creator of the Terminator franchise himself, James Cameron, and during that conversation Cameron revealed that he not only wants to make “Terminator 6”, but a seventh and eighth Terminator film as well! Yes, James Cameron wants to make a new trilogy… but he has to clear some copyright hurdles first.
Here at Skynet’s Army: Terminator Fans United, we have always believed our strength is in our numbers, and every Terminator fan has an equal voice to appreciate what they choose in this wonderful science fiction franchise (without condemnation or judgment). And adhering to that mission statement, unlike other outlets, we will not tell you what you should want in “Terminator 6”. Instead. we asked to hear from our Army directly, and report on their hopes of what direction Skydance and James Cameron should take T6… and the future of the Terminator franchise. And this is what Terminator fans had to say:
This past March, when Skydance chief David Ellison revealed that a major announcement about the Terminator franchise was coming in 2017, fans were elated. At that point, “Terminator 6” news had already broke that James Cameron would be involved (which Cameron confirmed), and we later learned that Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to be involved as well. Actually, the only thing remaining to be confirmed (other than the nature of the movie itelf and the distributor) is the announcement that Tim Miller will be directing “Terminator 6”.
When the news broke two days ago (reported here) that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he would be back for “Terminator 6”, some Terminator fans were understandably suspicious. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a track record of optimism (sometimes against all odds) and never seems to say “no” to what the fans want to hear. We even wrote an article about it a year ago titled “TERMINATOR 6 : When Schwarzenegger talks, sometimes listen.”. Well this time, we feel fans should definitely listen.
Back in February of 2016, we were contacted by someone who asked to remain anonymous and claimed they were related to a key member involved in “Terminator 6” discussions. This insider claimed to have news to share about James Cameron rentering the creative fold with Skydance to work on a new Terminator film. Then, as T6 news broke almost a year later, it turned out our contact indeed was correct in regards to Cameron’s return. But that wasn’t the only thing this scooper was correct about.
Now that Paramount Pictures has officially declined their option to continue with the “Terminator Genisys” trilogy, and Skydance looks onward to produce a new Terminator film with creator James Cameron in the mix, a great deal of Terminator fans are left wondering what happened to the Guardian, Sarah and Kyle in the Genisys timeline? So it is time to let Skydance know, that fans would like to find out.
When the news first broke in January of 2018 that a new Skydance Terminator film was under development with James Cameron “godfathering” the production and “Deadpool” director Tim Miller in negotiations to direct, we were able to hypothesize what type of Terminator movie it would be based on clues the source provided.
We told you! After our late Saturday report indicating the Paramount Pictures’ decision not to pick up their option to make a sixth Terminator film wasn’t a bad thing, and after all the panic that was ensued by fans after the false reporting by other news sites that “Terminator 6” was dead, and after we released a new article again to reassure fans that they had nothing to fear, we finally have confirmation that we were right.
