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

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?
