There are certain movie franchises in Hollywood which just cannot seem to let go or say goodbye, continuing on with new instalments way beyond what any of the fans need or even want, with poor film after poor film. That is exactly what has happened with the Terminator movie franchise, which has not given us a good film since Terminator 2: Judgement Day and looked like it had finally called it quits after the flop of Terminator: Genisys.
However, the rights to the Terminator movie franchises have reverted back to original director James Cameron, who wants to make another Terminator movie and has brought Deadpool director Tim Miller on board to helm the project. We already know that the plan is to ignore everything that has happened since Terminator 2: Judgement Day and now, lead star Arnold Schwarzenegger has insisted that they will be going back to basics.
Arnie explained, "I think [James] Cameron and Tim [Miller] came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800 but make a whole new movie. What they are doing now with this one is basically to just take a few very basic characters, like Linda Hamilton’s character and my character, and dismiss everything else. Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and other characters."
With James Cameron back in control of the new Terminator movie and with Tim Miller on board to direct the project, we do have to admit that it does give us high hopes for the new film. However, we cannot help but think that an ageing Arnold Schwarzenegger will not do the movie justice and that they should consider replacing him with a new, younger actor.
