So who would’ve thought that despite the futuristic nature of it’s content that we’d still be hearing and talking about the Terminator franchise?? It just goes to show ya…nothing really ever dies in Hollywood. So with this said, it’s no surprise that there are talks of making more Terminator films.
Megan Ellison‘s company Annapurna Pictures has won the rights to make “at least two more films” as was recently announced. They are now going to be the producers behind Justin Lin and Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s potential Terminator sequels.
Now, knowing that the Terminator franchise has always been independently owned adds another interesting element to this news with Ellison’s company beating out bigger competition from the likes of Lionsgate. The independent company is responsible for films such as The Wettest County in the World, Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, Wong Kar Wai’s The Grandmasters, and Kathryn Bigelow’s tentatively-titled Kill Bin Laden.
So how are you guys feeling about this news?? Are you ready for more Terminator or should this be left as a thing of the past? Personally, I think the first film really covered everything worth covering with the concept, and everything else just feels redundant.
