Whedon's Terminator

Not too long after news of Terminator being up for grabs, another big name is throwing their hat in the ring. That name is Joss Whedon.

While Whedon states it's not a joke, his open letter is quite hilarious. Here is his introduction and a few things he would do with the franchise:

"I am Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind Titan A.E., Parenthood (not the movie) (or the new series) (or the one where 'hood' was capitalized 'cause it was a pun), and myriad other legendary tales. I have heard through the 'grapevine' that the Terminator franchise is for sale, and I am prepared to make a pre-emptive bid RIGHT NOW to wrap this dealio up. This is not a joke, this is not a scam, this is not available on TV. I will write a check TODAY for $10,000, and viola! Terminator off your hands."

1) Terminator... of the Rings! Yeah, what if he time-travelled TOO far... back to when there was dragons and wizards? (I think it was the Dark Ages.) Hasta La Vista, Boramir! Cool, huh? "Now you gonna be Gandalf the Red!" RRRRIP! But then he totally helps, because he's a cyborg and he doesn't give a s#&% about the ring -- it has no power over him! And he can carry it AND Frodo AND Sam AND [email protected]%& up some orcs while he's doing it. This stuff just comes to me. I mean it. (I will also offer $10,000 for the Lord of the Rings franchise).

2) More Glau. Hey. There's a reason they're called "Summer" movies.

3) Can you say... musical? Well don't. Even I know that's an awful idea.

4) Christian Bale's John Connor will get a throat lozenge. This will also help his Batwork (ten grand for that franchise too, btw.)

5) More porn. John Connor never told Kyle Reese this, but his main objective in going to the past was to get some. What if there's a lot of future-babies that have to be made? Cue wah-wah pedal guitar -- and dollar signs!

6) The movies will stop getting less cool.

Whedon concludes that the film needs someone with heart, as he feels that the franchise is "plumbing the depths". He also notes that he's seen TERMINATOR more than any other movie while he was in college. Is Whedon qualified? Hell, I'd let him have a stab at it. However, I could be bias as I am a huge fan of all things Joss.

Extra Tidbit: Should the franchise die? Will Cameron buy the rights? So many questions. I'm actually quite anxious to see who wins this one.
