On the promotion tour for his new movie “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, actor Matt Smith (who played the embodiment of Skynet in last summer’s “Terminator Genisys”) was asked by Den of Geek about Paramount Pictures pulling ‘Terminator 6’ from its current release schedule. When the interviewer asked Smith if he essentially saw the T6 date cancellation coming… the actor had this to say:
It’s been 48 hours since we officially asked Skydance and James Cameron to confirm or debunk this rumor that the legendary director is considering returning to the fantastic universe of “The Terminator ” that he created so long ago. Fans have been dreaming of the day when the father of the franchise would come back to his roots and write (as well as direct) the next installment of this beloved franchise we hold near and dear to our hearts.
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 SkynetsArmy.com 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.
An article by Deadline.com strangely caught traction today among entertainment industry websites and (some) Terminator fans alike when they reported that the planned sequel to “TERMINATOR GENISYS” was officially removed from Paramount Picture’s release date schedule of May 19, 2017. The oddest thing about the report (and the enormous reaction it received) was this story was treated by many news outlets like it was something new… a breaking piece of shocking journalism about the state of the Terminator Franchise.. with no previous indicators that this date cancellation was slated to occur. But well informed Terminator fans already knew this was going to happen, and this date cancellation was just an expected formality.
