James Cameron in early talks with Tim Miller to reboot The Terminator

01.20.2017

Terminator James Cameron Tim Miller reboot

Well, I certainly didn't see that coming. After the disappointing reception which TERMINATOR: GENISYS received, it seemed that the TERMINATOR franchise was finally buried once and for all, but, according to Deadline, none other than James Cameron himself will be bringing the character back from the dead.

James Cameron will regain certain rights to THE TERMINATOR in 2019, and the outlet reports that he will be "godfathering a new iteration of the film that might finally get it right in drawing a close in the battle between humans and Skynet." As Cameron will be busy with the many AVATAR sequels for the next several years, he's begun talking with Tim Miller (DEADPOOL) about directing a "reboot and conclusion" to the franchise. Which is it? Skydance CEO David Ellison still holds many rights to TERMINATOR, and he'll be putting up the dough for an "exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively." Following the release of TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY, Cameron had little involvement with the films which followed, beyond singing the praises of TERMINATOR: GENISYS for some reason, so having him back in the TERMINATOR universe once again is fairly exciting, even if he won't be directing.

It's much too early to jump to any conclusions, and Deadline isn't sure whether the project will be a total reboot or a continuation of T2, but this is sure to get TERMINATOR fans talking about a possible return to form for the franchise.

What are your thoughts on James Cameron returning to one of his most famous creations and how do you feel about Tim Miller possibly directing it?

They've had three chances to make a quality Terminator movie without Cameron and failed miserably. If this means that Cameron will be actively seeing a proper reboot, then this is the only way to do it

Huge Fan of the "Franchise"

T1 and T2 got me hooked. Now, what followed were not to par but enjoyable in their own way to see different takes on the universe. I've been an advocate of a formal T3 with Cameron at the helm. I dove into some of the book series back in the day by S.M. Stirling. I would love for the story to pick up where T2 finished like the first book T2: Infiltrator. Synopsis below. It would be the best way to continue the "true" story and also fit in a Now Arnold as the primary character is the basis of

It would be the best way to continue the "true" story and also fit in a Now Arnold as the primary character is the basis of the T800 Human that was used to Model the machines look. I'll continue to keep my fingers crossed for it. Good read as well for anyone looking for some great Terminator material.

Synopsis: John and Sarah, while living in Paraguay, encounter a former agent named Dieter von Rossbach, whose physical appearance would become the basis for the T-800 terminator seen in the first two films.

Ultimately, John, Sarah and Dieter find themselves forced into a conflict with the newest version of a Terminator, the I-950 Infiltrator Serena Burns. This unit, sent by Skynet from the future, has taken over as the head of security for Cyberdyne, now operating under the control of the U.S. Government.

Sweet

I love all the sequels to Judgement Day. In fact I'd say they were even better than the originals, by far!!! Can we get a CGI Michael Biehn and Christian Bale? And be sure to cast Jai Courtney, he's a national treasure. Oh man, that would be SO sweet. In fact, they should just replace all the actors with CGI recreations la Rogue One. What could possibly go wrong?

If THREE sequels to Terminator: Judgement Day failed, why would a fourth work?
I tolerated Genesys, but not enough to justify more movies. Let it go.

How the hell do you have a conclusion and a reboot? That is by far the dumbest comment for a movie I've read in a long time.
The problem with Salvation and Geneysis is that they keep trying to jump start a new series of films for terminator, but no one wants that. You just need one more (2 tops) showing the future war as seen in the first 2 films to conclude the first 2 films. You can include ideas from 3 and 4 if needed, but you pretty much need to ignore everything from the awful Geneysis

It's still gonna be a huge gamble, but with a visionary director and a less-is-more budget this might work. And yes, this time they will really have to let go of Ahnuld and start everything from scratch.

young audiences just does not git a rat ass about terminator, and 80's kid like me cannot imagine one without Arnold, and he is just too old for this now, he embarrassed himself in Genysis...

Westworld

Westworld proved that there can still be a badass version of a terminator. Delores and the snake tattoo chick. Marsden when he grabbed the knife. Yes! Make a good Terminator movie. And T2 doesn't hold up. The Terminator is the magic they need to capture again. Teach millennials how to steal cars. Fuck James Cameron, just make another damn movie. Call it turd and present it in 4d. We will go.

I think we all agree that Terminator 2 was the best. The first Terminator is a bit dated now. Terminator 3 is underrated. Yes, it is basically a retread of Terminator 2 with an evil Terminator trying to kill John Conner and Arnold Schwarzenegger as a good Terminator trying to stop him/her but it had cool moments. Terminator Salvation was just boring. Terminator 2, 3 and Genisys were all confusing, however, with heroes trying to prevent the future and robots trying to cause it. We are at

Terminator Salvation was just boring. Terminator 2, 3 and Genisys were all confusing, however, with heroes trying to prevent the future and robots trying to cause it. We are at the point now where they explicitly have alternative timelines. That reduces the stakes a little bit because instead of trying to change the future you are just creating a future where everything is okay.

I personally think Terminator Genisys was okay. At least they tried to do something different. A Terminator kills John Conner and steals not only his appearance and voice but also his memories. In a way, the already did that in Terminator Salvation: the Terminator had all the memories of the person he was replacing and ended up believing he was still human. Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genisys could have been better because they had good ideas.

I do think they have run out of ideas though. Perhaps it is better leaving things as they are with five films.

at this point I'd rather see them bring the Sarah Connor Chronicles back with all the original cast. That show should NEVER have been cancelled!

Even if they rebooted SCC with a new cast, I'd want to see it.

So he wants to reboot after the film that supposedly be a reboot in a way? Genisys has so many problems, mainly the villain. The new T-1000 was a letdown. A personified Skynet was also a let down. The entire movie was huge letdown, for me anyway.
