The story broke this past Saturday reported by the New York Daily News, that executives at Paramount Pictures have decided not to pick up their option to bring the sixth Terminator film to cinemas across the world. It was first embraced as good news to fans, but now, after a swell of misinformation, some Terminator fans have grown concerned in regards to the future of T6. Well, we are here to calm those fears.
While promoting his latest documentary project “Atlantis Rising” (which follows a team of archeologists and scientists in search for the lost city of Atlantis), the legendary James Cameron was asked about the Terminator film franchise, past and present. Cameron went on to discuss the previous steps of the Terminator franchise, and its future… a future where he thinks “it’s possible to tell a great Terminator story now”!
Almost a year ago in February of 2016, we were contacted by someone who asked to remain anonymous and claimed they were related to a key member involved in the “Terminator 6” discussions, and had some news to share. We posted an article about it (found here) and warned readers to treat the information as strictly a rumor. However, now almost 12 months later, fresh from the revelation that James Cameron is involved heavily with developing T6, it appears this inside information may have been more factual than we realized.
We always believed he would be back! Trusted Hollywood trade news website Deadline has just reported that a sixth Terminator film is now in a pre-production phase, with no one other than Terminator creator James Cameron involved in its development! Yes fans, you read that right! TERMINATOR 6 IS COMING and James Cameron is going to give it to you!

[EDITORIAL] It is a sad state of affairs when someone writing a news article has an agenda. News articles are supposed to present the reader solely with the facts and let the reader form his own opinion based on those facts. Agendas, on the other hand, should be reserved for opinion based editorial articles.
There used to be a clear line dividing the two, however now that the requirements of professional journalism has been reduced to owning a computer and having an internet connection, that line has been sadly blurred… and the Terminator franchise is the latest casualty.
Apparently Terminator fans were not the only ones disappointed when Skydance announced the new Genisys trilogy would be delayed. While plugging his latest movie “Suicide Squad”, Jai Courtney spoke to CinemaBlend regarding his disappointment that the planned “Terminator Genisys” Trilogy was put on temporary hold (as Skydance Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg put it) “to do a worldwide study and really talk to audiences about what they loved, and what maybe didn’t work for them, so that the next (step) we take with the franchise is the right one.”
Ever since Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg announced in regards to the future of the Terminator franchise “Do we intend to have a next step of Terminator? Yes, we do“, fans have been anxiously waiting to hear what can we expect from a sixth film. Will the next film be a direct sequel to Terminator Genisys? If not, will it (at the least) carry over the threads of the alternate timeline that the writers of Genisys so cleverly established? While no one except for Skydance knows for sure, we decided to gather some plot tidbits of what was originally planned… and may still get in some shape or form in TERMINATOR 6.
This is an open letter to Chief Executive Officer David Ellison and Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions:
Dear Ms. Goldberg & Mr. Ellison,
We are writing to you on behalf of the thousands of Terminator fans who support and subscribe to SKYNETSARMY.com. We hope you will take the time to consider our following request.
Among fans of the Terminator films, there has been an outspoken minority that have beaten the same drum for a dozen years now on how to restore the Terminator franchise back to its glory days (when the visionary James Cameron wrote and directed the films.) Their mantra is deliberate and consistent, focusing on two key points that (to them) are necessary to have a great Terminator film: It must have an adult “R” (UK-18) rating and it should have little-to-no comedy. That same drum is being beaten again as Skydance Productions informed the public that they are “readjusting” the way they approach the next Terminator film and deciding if (and how) they will proceed with the “Genisys” Trilogy. Now more than ever, it’s time to dispel these two age-old arguments.
