Exactly a month ago, in order to freshen up the Terminator franchise, creator James Cameron revealed that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger would only be somewhat involved “to some extent” with Terminator 6, 7 and 8. This seemed to indicate that fans should not expect Arnold to be the ‘headlining star’ that carries these new Terminator films forward, especially when Cameron also revealed that these new Terminator films would “pass the baton” to new characters.
The 2009 film Terminator Salvation was meant to be the start of a new trilogy for our favorite science fiction franchise. Set after the events of Judgment Day, this trilogy promised to give fans something they have been hungering for since the first Terminator film debuted in 1984: A depiction of the post-apocalyptic Future War.
Ever since the credits rolled back in 1991 for “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, fans have been dreaming of the day that the creator of our favorite franchise would be back to write and direct another Terminator movie. While the idea of James Cameron directing might never come true, the more we learn about the development of Terminator 6, the more it appears the story will indeed come from the mind of Cameron himself.
When “News Corp Australia Network” (NCAN) sat down recently with Terminator creator James Cameron, the visionary director revealed not only that he wanted “Terminator 6” to be the start of a new trilogy, but hinted on what fans might expect in his new series of films. And what we can expect is a transition from the old Terminator films, to a brand new storyline.
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.
