New Terminator Films Teams Up Siblings To Produce Franchise
Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool
It seems like every time you forget that Annapurna Pictures have the rights to Terminator and want to make more films from the franchise, just the tiniest bit of news seeps out to remind you that it is still on.
Tonight,Deadline are reporting that founder of the production company,Megan Ellison, has recruited her brother David Ellison to produce with her. They are an interesting producing pair with Megan's previous films including The Master, Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty, and David's consisting of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness and Jack Reacher. That certainly sounds like it could be a winning combination for the franchise.
That is, if it ever gets made. The film is still looking for a studio and no progress has been made on the script thus far. So it seems that the film is still alive, but hardly flying out the gate.
Brendon's note: David Ellison smells of Tom Cruise to me. And Cruise is certainly going very sci-fi of late... If it does happen, I for one won't be surprised.

Ugh can't help groaning a bit every mention of Lawless....it's not a patch on either The Proposition or The Road.
A gritty hillbilly crime drama with some good performances but an undercooked script and lashings of overcooked music.
Either way, they seem to produce fairly quality movies but they need to get imaginative with directorial choices..this is one i would definitely NOT throw Del Toro in for

I know it won't happen, but I really wish they would just let this one die already. Cameron's movies were great, but two medicore-to-bad movies and a TV show have just kept this franchise limping along. Not every cash cow lasts forever (though I imagine George Lucas might disagree).

The terimantor series needs to die. It was good and had its momments but all things must die

I disagree. If McG had some balls and put Bale (and Nolan's brother) in their place, it arguably could've been one of the best of the series. It was Worthington's movie until Bale came along and inserted all of those irrelevant scenes that had to do with Conner. Seriously. Watch it again. You'll notice that hardly anything that Connor does impacts the plot in any way shape or form.It's a dire, pessimistic, myopic exploration into the world where an idiot human crushed the idealism of an alien child to the point he became an ineffectual, mopey, sad little boy who helped cause the deaths of thousands, if not millions. Not Superman at all. -Pop-Tart Samson

Good. After that disaster of a movie terminator salvation it's good to see their going to fix what was once a great franchise
