If you are a Terminator fan you have likely heard the name Andrew Vajna before. Vajna was one of two film investors along with Mario Kassar who founded the company Carolco Pictures. Carolco was the film company that ultimately acquired the rights to the Terminator franchise from the Hemdale Film Corporation back in 1990 (after Vajna left), and went on to make the blockbuster film “Terminator 2: Judgment Day“. Later that decade Carolco went bankrupt, but out of the ashes Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar obtained the Terminator rights again and formed a new company called C2 Pictures in 2002. They produced the sequel “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” a year later. Vajna was also credited as an executive producer for both “Terminator Salvation” and the short-lived television series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Throughout his life, Vajna has had his influential hands all over Terminator… and now he’s back!
The sixth film in the Terminator franchise has landed a filming home in Budapest, Hungary! That’s right, Terminator 6 will be doing most of it’s filming in Origo Film Group Studios, the same facility used to film 2017’s “Blade Runner 2049” and “Atomic Blonde“! In fact, they have already begun the construction of sets for T6!
UPDATED! While they haven’t pinpointed an official release date, Terminator fans in Hungary can finally exhale in a sigh of relief. Studiocanal partner Pannonia Entertainment has officially announced that the restored 3D conversion of “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” will be released “theatrically” in the third quarter of this year (which means July, August or September 2017.)
