Published Mar 22, 2017Yesterday, a report from the New York Daily News suggested that the Terminator franchise was finished after Paramount Pictures took it off the production slate. We naively believed them, which was a mistake in retrospect. After all, if a franchise has ever made any money, there's no way it'll disappear in this day and age.
Collider has clarified the situation by interviewing Skydance's David Ellison. He said not to worry — Terminator will indeed be back.
"I will say we have resolved the future of the franchise and believe me its an incredibly bright future. I think where it's going will be the continuation of what the fans really wanted since T2," Ellison said. "We have something this year that we will be announcing for the franchise. It's something we're incredibly excited about and we think is the direction it needs to head."
In 2019, James Cameron is expected to regain the rights to the Terminator franchise. Rumour has it he is considering Deadpool director Tim Miller direct. The next film or batch of films are expected to conclude the franchise, though we won't fall for that again.
