Terminator Reboot Teams Deadpool Director and Producer James Cameron

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.

When that movie failed to perform as expected, the rights to the Terminator franchise went up for auction, and the result was Terminator Genisys: a new interpretation of the series from Skydance, the production company behind the rebooted Star Trek movies. In many respects, Skydance's treatment of The Terminator was markedly similar to its 2009 Star Trek movie: younger actors cast in familiar roles, at least one veteran from the original series returning to give an air of canonical legitimacy, and a »
