James Camron Planning To Reinvent The Terminator Series

News.com.au is reporting that filmmaker James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic) is planning to “reinvent” the Terminator series in a “three-film arc” that he's currently negotiating, if the rights to the franchise revert back ro him in 2019.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be involved in the projects but only “to some extent,”. according to the Camron, the plan would be to introduce new characters to “pass the baton”.”

“The question is — has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up?,” says Cameron. “Can it still have relevance now where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films. We live in a world of predator drones and surveillance and big data and emergent AI (artificial intelligence).

“So I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise and the rights in the US market revert to me under US copyright law in a year and a half so he and I are talking about what we can do. Right now we are leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it.”

“We’ll put more meat on the bones if we get past the next couple of hurdles as and when we announce that.”

We will update you once more details are made available. The 3D converted version of  Terminator 2: Judgment Day is set to return in theaters in August,2018.
