Closer to his 70s than his 60s, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the movie series that made his name next summer, as he takes a lead role in Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesys movie. He'll appear alongside Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney and Matt Smith in the movie, which is set to be the first part of a new trilogy.
As it turns out, it's the man who created the Terminator series, James Cameron, who's come to the rescue in explaining how Terminator: Genisys could put across an older looking Arnie Terminator, and still fit into the logic of the films. Chatting to Deadline, Cameron revealed that "I pointed out that the outer covering was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age".
He continued, adding that "you »
Ever since it was announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger will return for "Terminator Genisys," he's been saying that he'll be able to play the Terminator again because the robot's skin actually ages. Now comes word that the idea behind this came from James Cameron, who spoke about the reboot/sequel while celebrating the franchise's 30th anniversary. "I pointed out that the outer covering [of the Terminator] was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age," he explained. "You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor, he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered." "Terminator Genisys" co-stars Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jk Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung Hun Lee and Matt Smith. It's directed by »
He told Deadline the following:
“Outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered.”
So it may be no CGI or makeup to make him younger? We’ll see.
Cameron is not directly involved with the project and withholding his thoughts about it after reading the reboot script from Laeta Kalogridis. »

A few months ago, Terminator creator and mastermind James Cameron revealed that he was loosely attached to the upcoming Terminator Genisys film. It was just an advisory role for him, but it seems like he played a decent sized role in developing the story that we are going to see unfold. In a recent interview with Deadline he reveals what what his big and awesome contribution was.
"I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a »

James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. No, James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron, and although the Avatar director finds himself prepping for simultaneous production on three sequels to his Pandora-set box office juggernaut, he took a quick second to step away from that world to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator, which turned into a critical and box office success, launching his career and allowing him to continually raise the bar the way we know him to do. As with pretty much all popular franchises, save for Back to the Future, The Terminator is being rebooted, and with that comes speculation as to how franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger will fit into the new movie given he's not exactly a spring chicken anymore. Although Cameron isn't actively involved in the production of Terminator: Genisys, he explained to Deadline »

James Cameron is well and truly finished even remotely being concerned with the Terminator franchise. For the time being at least. The legendary director is still hopeful that the upcoming addition to the series, Terminator: Genisys, will be fun, but he has declared that the franchise simply isn.t his problem anymore. Cameron made the remarks to Empire Magazine during an event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator. That.s right - it.s been 30 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger.s monosyllabic monstrosity swanned into Los Angeles to try and kill Linda Hamilton.s Sarah Connor. How time flies. Cameron attended the special soiree that was held at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and he was of course inundated with questions regarding Alan Taylor.s 2015 effort. Despite his history with the franchise, James Cameron made sure to make it clear that he isn.t bothered in the slightest whether »
This past week, James Cameron joined Arnold Schwarzenegger for a 30th anniversary screening of the original 1984 Terminator. While speaking about the event alongside producer Gale Anne Hurd, the director reveals he was the one that came up with a reasonable way to have Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as a T-800 in Terminator Genisys.
James Cameron explains that he gave the idea directly to Terminator Genisys producer David Ellison because he wanted to see Arnold Schwarzenegger return, and he knew how that was going to be possible.
"I wasn't interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age.

This past week, James Cameron was present for a 30th Anniversary screening of sci-fi thriller The Terminator, which will be getting another reboot/sequel next summer in the form of Terminator Genisys. Though Cameron isn't directly involved with the film, he did reveal to Deadline that he gave the film's producer David Ellison an idea on how to utilize the now 67-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger. »
Deadline recently caught up with director James Cameron ("Avatar"), who is best known for writing and directing The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). During the discussion the filmmaker was asked about the upcoming film, Terminator: Genisys. While he isn't officially attached to that project he did offer the producers some advice on how to include Arnold Schwarzenegger ("True Lies"). “I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered.” In March, Cameron told MTV the "Termintor's flesh ages," so that information isn't new at all, »
What do you do when you make a movie about a humanoid cyborg and realize that your leading man has pretty much aged himself right out of the role? You make up a time-travel backstory to explain how cyborgs age. That’s what’s happening with the upcoming Terminator: Genisys, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a much older Terminator alongside an older version of John Connor and a younger Sarah Connor.

On paper, James Cameron has nothing to do with 2015′s Terminator Genisys. It’s a film based on characters he created, starring an actor he cast, but that’s about it. A few months ago, he did reveal he was “loosely attached” in an advisory role, but wouldn’t be credited. He said his biggest contribution was in […]

Ever since photos started leaking from the set of Terminator: Genisys, fans have been wondering just what was up with Arnold Schwarzenegger not only returning, but also playing a T-800 that looks like it's aged. After all, we're used to robotic killing machines that never age a day in their lives, and outlive us meat bags by a larger margin than our lifespans could ever accommodate. Well, now we have a reason why the T-800 is looking ready to go to the old bots home, and it's all because of the man who started the apocalyptic dream at the heart of the series: James Cameron. Deadline spoke with Cameron and Terminator producer Gale Anne Hurd at L.A.'s Egyptian Theater during an event for the 30th anniversary of The Terminator's original release, and while Cameron naturally explained that he was not a part of the production in any »
Despite James Cameron not actively pursuing the rights to The Terminator franchise when he had the chance, he still seems mildly interested in what direction future films will take. At the very least, to the point he'd be willing to step in and whisper in the year of the producer, which is exactly what happened in the case of Terminator: Genisys. A straight-up sequel to Judgment Day didn't quite measure up, and neither did a story taking place in the future war with the »

Friends for life, brothers from another mother, and dudes that make movies... James Cameron and Guillermo del Toro have been pals since the ‘90s. They met at a Fourth of July party. Del Toro eventually wound up living in Cameron’s guesthouse for a period of time, and following those days the men have traded opinions and advice regarding the other’s work. Cameron suggested the line in Cronos where Ron Perlman says, “Not my nose again!” Del Toro elaborates on their working relationship: “He’s helped with every one of my movies, except Mimic, where we were sequestered in Toronto and couldn’t show anyone. In Blade II, he gave me a few comments on the cut. I’ve been with him in the editing room for True Lies, Titanic, Avatar...

Along with the aforementioned duo, Djawadi’s previous credits include work on Clash of the Titans and this year’s Dracula Untold. Now, the experienced composer will take a trip to Azeroth along with Moon director Duncan Jones, who recently confirmed that production had wrapped on the live-action epic.
But Warcraft is far from completion, what with Industrial Light and Magic knee deep in special effects work. And given the fantastical setting of Jones’ film, it may be some time yet before we see a full-length trailer.
That said, during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event, lucky attendees were fortunate enough to see some early footage for the film, which has since been billed as combining the epic scope found in The Lord of the Rings »

Artist Liam Brazier spent some of his valuable time creating a couple of pieces of art paying homage to two of James Cameron's greatest achievements… Aliens and The Terminator. One thing Cameron was so good at with his films and stories is making the main antagonist a female badass. The illustrations will be a part of the "Imagined Worlds" art show being hosted by the Hero Complex Gallery. I'm sure we'll start seeing more art from that art show in the near future.

While celebrating the 30th anniversary of "The Terminator" at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, James Cameron spoke about his involvement with the new films currently in development. "I'm friendly with the filmmakers, the writer Laeta Kalogridis has worked with me on projects," he said. "I'm hoping it's great. I'd like them to get it right, and based on the script that I read there's a pretty good chance that it could. It looks like it could be fun." When asked if he's worried the new films could hurt the franchise, Cameron replied: "It's not my problem. It's like being a grandparent, the kids come over and you can send them back. When I walked away from the franchise, I had to do it with the sense that I can invest in emotion. To me, it's all upside, because if it's good, it's good for Arnold (Schwarzenegger), my friend Laeta and if it's not good? »
Filmmaker James Cameron has long moved on from his "Terminator" films and is now immersed in the world of "Avatar" with all his efforts currently focused on that film's numerous sequels set on the world of Pandora.
That doesn't mean he's completely out of the loop though regarding the upcoming "Terminator: Genisys". Attending a special 30th anniversary screening of "The Terminator" in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, Cameron was asked by Empire what he thought about next year's "Terminator" title, he says:
"I'm friendly with the filmmakers, the writer Laeta Kalogridis has worked with me on projects. I'm hoping it's great. I'd like them to get it right, and based on the script that I read there's a pretty good chance that it could. It looks like it could be fun."
Is he worried the film might damage his legacy?
"It's not my problem! It's like being a grandparent, the »

Last night in Los Angeles, a select group gathered for a special anniversary screening of James Cameron’s cyborg classic, The Terminator, to celebrate its 30th birthday. It’s a little hard to believe the movie that kickstarted the time-travelling Skynet series is three decades old, especially as the sequels are still comin’.
Since Cameron’s opening instalment, we’ve seen three follow-ups, only one of which he directed (Terminator 2: Judgment Day.) Still, that’s not stopped others from reusing the characters and stories, especially after Annapurna Films snapped up the rights and are developing a new trilogy of Terminator pics, starting with next year’s Terminator Genisys.
Speaking to Empire at the screening last night, Cameron was asked for his thoughts on the upcoming outing and had the following to say:
“I’m friendly with the filmmakers, the writer Laeta Kalogridis has worked with me on projects,” he said. »
