Now that Paramount Pictures has officially declined their option to continue with the “Terminator Genisys” trilogy, and Skydance looks onward to produce a new Terminator film with creator James Cameron in the mix, a great deal of Terminator fans are left wondering what happened to the Guardian, Sarah and Kyle in the Genisys timeline? So it is time to let Skydance know, that fans would like to find out.
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.
We told you! After our late Saturday report indicating the Paramount Pictures’ decision not to pick up their option to make a sixth Terminator film wasn’t a bad thing, and after all the panic that was ensued by fans after the false reporting by other news sites that “Terminator 6” was dead, and after we released a new article again to reassure fans that they had nothing to fear, we finally have confirmation that we were right.
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.
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.
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!
While the status of the Terminator franchise is currently in a state of unknown, a German animator has just made an open pitch to current Terminator rights owner Skydance Productions for a new direction that the classic science fiction series could take.
Back in December 2013, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures announced that the Terminator franchise would be headed back to the small screen, in a brand new television series. This welcomed announcement came four years after the critically praised “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” series ended its broadcasting run, to much chagrin of its fans.
[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.
