James Cameron Is Finally Ready to Revisit the ‘Terminator’ Franchise

7 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Cameron hasn’t been involved in a “Terminator” movie since he directed 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” but that could all be changing after the filmmaker regains the rights in 2019.

According to Deadline, Cameron is crafting a new “Terminator” project and is in early talks to have “Deadpool” helmer Tim Miller direct a reboot and “conclusion of one of cinema’s great science fiction tales.” David Ellison, whose company co-financed “Terminator Genisys” and is the current rights holder, will also be involved by bankrolling the effort.

It is unknown if Cameron will reboot the whole franchise or pick up where he left off. Though, he will team up with “top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively.”

James Cameron Talking to Tim Miller about a Terminator Reboot

15 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

This cannot be true can it?  Is James Cameron really talking about a Terminator reboot with Tim Miller (Deadpool)?  Considering the horrible reception that Terminator Genisys received you would think that the franchise would be left alone.  However, you have to believe that if anyone could bring The Terminator back to life it would be James Cameron, the original director of the 1984 sci-fi classic. According to Deadline,  none other than James Cameron himself will be bringing the character back from the dead.  The Avatar director will regain certain rights to The Terminator in 2019, and the outlet reports that

They are making another, final Terminator film… but there’s good news

16 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Another, final Terminator film is in the planning over at Skydance, but hold on… there is some very good news. Deadline are reporting that none other than James Cameron is ‘godfathering’ the new instalment in a troubled franchise (in terms of the last two or three movies anyway), and Deadpool helmer Tim Miller may direct it.

Kkydance co-financed Terminator Genisys, and according to the trade blog, ‘is bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively.’

The Terminator movies have taken a grand total of $1.8 billion in box-office revenue, the biggest earner being the second movie in the series Terminator 2: Judgement Day, which is also arguably the best.

There’s no word as to whether the new movie will be a reboot or a continuation, and at the moment there has been no official comments from any of the parties involved. »

James Cameron to “godfather” Terminator reboot from Deadpool director Tim Miller

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron may have spent the last few years of his career holed up developing those Avatar sequels he keeps promising are happening, but it looks like he’ll soon be going back to his roots. According to Deadline, Cameron will help shepherd in a reboot of The Terminator in 2019, with the help of Deadpool director Tim Miller.

The project is being called a “reboot and conclusion” of the Terminator franchise, which has been in dire straits since Cameron’s last film in the franchise, 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Cameron will reportedly regain the rights to the franchise in 2019, the 35-year anniversary of the first film, which is why he’ll be involved in this film. Terminator Genisys producer David Ellison (who holds many Terminator rights after purchasing them from his sister, Annapurna pictures’ Megan Ellison) is said to be “bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight »

James Cameron returning to the Terminator franchise; Deadpool’s Tim Miller to direct

22 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Josh Wilding

James Cameron sold the rights to the Terminator franchise back in 1984, and he’s seemingly been biding his time ever since. After walking away from the franchise after the sequel, he endorsed 2015’s awful Terminator Genisys but has otherwise remained totally hands off.

Well, with Paramount Pictures’ plans to launch a new trilogy crashing and burning, Cameron is clearly looking ahead to when he regains those rights in 2019 as he’s come on board to relaunch the franchise. It’s currently unclear what that means as we don’t know whether it will be a sequel or complete reboot, but we do know that Cameron won’t be at the helm.

After all, he’s busy with Avatar (if those sequels ever actually happen), so it looks like he’ll be passing the reigns over to Tim Miller. The Deadpool helmer isn’t returning for the sequel, »

James Cameron Planning New Terminator Film with Deadpool’s Tim Miller to Direct?

20 January 2017 7:23 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over 25 years have passed since the last time James Cameron was directly involved in the decades-long fight between the Connors and Skynet, but it looks like the renowned director could once again bring his guidance to the Terminator franchise in the near future.

Deadline reports that in 2019, 35 years after the release of The Terminator, Cameron will reacquire rights to his seminal 1984 sci-fi film due to copyright reversion.

With the regaining of his rights not too far down the road, Cameron is reportedly in early discussions with Deadpool director Tim Miller about the future of the franchise. According to Deadline, Cameron is considering having Miller direct a Terminator film that would both reboot and conclude the franchise.

Skydance’s David Ellison is currently looking to bring talented sci-fi writers on board to create the story for the new film. There’s no word yet as to whether the new movie would »

James Cameron To Reboot Terminator Franchise; Deadpool Helmer Tim Miller Will Direct

20 January 2017 5:32 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The rights to the Terminator franchise were always going to return to James Cameron in 2019, hence why Paramount were looking to rush out a new trilogy beginning with 2015's Terminator Genisys. Now, with the clock ticking, Deadline reports that the Avatar director is looking to take a new crack at the property with Deadpool helmer and VFX expert Tim Miller reportedly set to direct the new movie.  Skydance's David Ellison is paying for what the trade calls "an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively" and they have a breakdown of how things work with the rights which are well worth taking a look at by clicking below.  There's no word on whether this movie would be a total reboot or somehow continue the story started back in 1984, but bringing back Arnold Schwarzenegger and delving into some of the original characters didn't »

Terminator Reboot Teams Deadpool Director and Producer James Cameron

20 January 2017 5:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With certain rights to the iconic Terminator franchise reverting back to Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day creator/director James Cameron in 2019, the filmmaker is prepping his return to the series. Cameron is planning to 'Godfather' a 'reboot and conclusion' of the first two movies, with Deadpool director Tim Miller in early talks to direct. David Ellison, who bought the franchise rights from his sister Megan Ellison in 2013, is funding an "exploratory effort" that brings some of the top sci-fi authors together to "find the movie creatively."

Deadline broke the news, but even the site concedes that it's unclear what direction the story will go in. After directing 1984's The Terminator and its blockbuster 1991 sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, James Cameron backed away from the franchise, and he wasn't involved in 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Against the Machines, the 2008 TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 2009's Terminator Salvation or last year's Terminator Genisys. »

Newswire: James Cameron might be returning to the Terminator franchise

20 January 2017 5:22 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Good news for fans of hunter-killer cyborgs, convoluted time travel, and classic action movie catchphrases: James Cameron might be returning to the Terminator franchise. Deadline reports that Cameron is in early talks to act as a “godfather” on the latest entry in the long-running franchise, serving as an adviser and mentor for Deadpool director Tim Miller.

Cameron hasn’t been involved in the Terminator series since 1991, when he directed the massively successful (and awesome) Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Later installments in the franchise—Terminator 3, Salvation, and Genisys—have been made without Cameron’s involvement, but that might change in 2019. That’ll be 35 years after the original The Terminator, meaning that some of the rights to the franchise (which Cameron sold to the movie’s producers for $1 back in 1984, in exchange for a promise to keep him on as director) will revert to him.

James Cameron And Deadpool Director Tim Miller Will Reboot The Terminator

20 January 2017 4:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, it looks like we now know why director Tim Miller chose not to return for Deadpool 2. Though creative differences no doubt played a large part in his departure, it seems that he also had bigger fish to fry. How big, you ask? Try Terminator-level big. That’s right, folks, it sounds like the filmmaker will be teaming up with James Cameron to reboot the iconic sci-fi actioner, according to Deadline.

The outlet’s report doesn’t go into much detail on the new project, but with the rights to the franchise set to revert back to Cameron in a few years, sources say the director is talking to Miller about doing another film in the series. Skydance’s David Ellison is financing the new effort and it’s said that a search is currently underway for a group of writers who can crack the story. Though it »

Jim Gianopulos in Early Talks With Wanda for Legendary Post

19 January 2017 7:46 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former Fox Film chief Jim Gianopulos is in preliminary talks with China’s Dalian Wanda Group to run and expand its Legendary Pictures, according to two sources close to the executive.

The discussions with Wanda honcho Jack Gao, whom Gianopulos has known for years, are in the very early stages, the sources said. Many key issues have not even been discussed at this point, including Gianopulos’ compensation, an actual business plan, and how much Wanda is willing to invest in building Legendary into a full-fledged studio. Wanda has said in the past that it plans to invest billions of dollars into Hollywood assets.

Legendary is in search of a new leader to succeed Thomas Tull, who two days ago announced his departure as chairman and CEO from the company he founded in 2005, then sold it to Wanda last year for $3.5 billion. Legendary disclosed in a regulatory filing last May that »
