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.
This past January, exciting news broke that a sixth Terminator film was now in a pre-production phase, with no one other than Terminator creator James Cameron involved in its development. The source revealed that “Terminator Genisys” Skydance CEO David Ellison was bankrolling the development of “Terminator 6”, which included finding the perfect script by reaching out to the best science fiction authors in the world, in an attempt to find a worthy story to tell.
We always believed he would be back! Trusted Hollywood trade news website Deadline has just reported that a sixth Terminator film is now in a pre-production phase, with no one other than Terminator creator James Cameron involved in its development! Yes fans, you read that right! TERMINATOR 6 IS COMING and James Cameron is going to give it to you!
Back in December 2013, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures announced that the Terminator franchise would be headed back to the small screen, in a brand new television series. This welcomed announcement came four years after the critically praised “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” series ended its broadcasting run, to much chagrin of its fans.
As we wait to hear official word from Skydance Media regarding their plans to move forward with another Terminator film (or not), we have noticed a trend occurring with film sequels lately that may prove promising and actually be a sign of encouragement to fans who are still holding out hope for a “Terminator Genisys” sequel.
Back in October 2015, Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg announced the following in regards to the future of the Terminator franchise: “Do we intend to have a next step of Terminator? Yes, we do“. Since then, fans have been anxiously waiting to hear the film and television production company’s reveal on what exactly we can expect. Will the sixth Terminator film be independent or releated to the storyline “Terminator Genisys” so cleverly established? Is it possible Skydance abandons future theatrical plans and continues our favorite science fiction universe via a Television show or miniseries? While fans have been brimming with anticipation, nine months have since passed since Dana Goldberg made that infamous announcement and the fanbase is none the wiser. However, hope is in the horizon.
This is an open letter to Chief Executive Officer David Ellison and Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions:
Dear Ms. Goldberg & Mr. Ellison,
We are writing to you on behalf of the thousands of Terminator fans who support and subscribe to SKYNETSARMY.com. We hope you will take the time to consider our following request.
