Back 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 “Terminator 6” discussions. This insider claimed to have news to share about James Cameron rentering the creative fold with Skydance to work on a new Terminator film. Then, as T6 news broke almost a year later, it turned out our contact indeed was correct in regards to Cameron’s return. But that wasn’t the only thing this scooper was correct about.
We have more great news Terminator fans! Yes, fans in Ireland will be pleased to know that they can experience “Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D” the way James Cameron intended: in a movie theater!
When the news first broke in January of 2018 that a new Skydance Terminator film was under development with James Cameron “godfathering” the production and “Deadpool” director Tim Miller in negotiations to direct, we were able to hypothesize what type of Terminator movie it would be based on clues the source provided.
Hasta La Vista Paramount Pictures! On March 4th, we reported HERE that a source informed us that in 2017, the long running partnership between Skydance and Paramount Pictures was coming to a close, freeing up Skydance to shop movie projects to any studio in the world. We were also informed that James Cameron wanted to bring “TERMINATOR 6” to the movie studio he developed a 30 plus year relationship with, none other than 20th Century Fox! Well now it appears once again, a scoop we received about T6 is revealing itself to be true.
When the creator of Terminator franchise James Cameron last spoke about a release date for his anticipated sequel to his 2009 blockbuster hit “Avatar”, Cameron announced it would hit theaters in December of 2018. Film enthusiasts around the world, hungry for a new James Cameron directed film, were enthusiastic over the news, but now things have changed.
While they haven’t pinpointed an official release date, Terminator fans in Hungary can finally exhale in a sigh of relief. Studiocanal partner Pannonia Entertainment has officially announced that the restored 3D conversion of “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” will be released “theatrically” in the third quarter of this year (which means July, August or September 2017.)
James Cameron and the late Bill Paxton were very close friends, so much so that the night before Paxton’s heart surgery (that led to the complications that took his life), Jim and Bill had a conversation and made light of the surgery Bill was about to undergo. Unbeknownst to both of them, it would be the last time they would ever speak. So it is no wonder, after doing it twice already, that Cameron still felt the need to eulogize his late friend one more time.
Back in 2008, nine years before the friendly duo started developing “Terminator 6”, “Deadpool” director Tim Miller was actively pitching film studios a new movie based on the American science fiction magazine Heavy Metal, with no one other than James Cameron to executive produce and co-direct.
We didn’t know it at the time, but over a year ago, we received a legitimate scoop that James Cameron would be creatively involved in some capacity with “TERMINATOR 6”. Fast forward to 13 months later, and once again we have been contacted by a claimed insider that reportedly has new information in regards to T6.
Actor. Director. Artist. Collector. Friend. Bill Paxton was a great many things to the creator of the Terminator franchise, James Cameron. So it’s no wonder that Cameron’s original statement made on the day of his passing (reported here) was not nearly enough to process his grief when remembering his dear, late friend Bill. James Cameron has since released a new statement about Bill Paxton, and this is what he had to say:
