TERMINATOR: GENISYS was an attempt at resurrecting a franchise and taking it to the promised land. This was not the case as the film was only able to pull in $89 million domestically and $440 million worldwide. This being a number falling short of the great expectations.
Fans will be happy to know that Deadline is reporting that original creator James Cameron will be regaining certain rights to the title in the year 2019. This will be 35 years after the original film's release. Cameron will be very creatively involved with a fresh TERMINATOR entry. The movie will likely be co-financed by producer David Ellison's Skydance, the company that owns other rights to TERMINATOR.
We are also hearing that Ellison will not be sitting in the director's chair as he will be busy with four different AVATAR movies. It looks as though Tim Miller (DEADPOOL) is being heavily considered for the directing spot and he is the man that Cameron wants to be directing. Keep in mind that nothing is official at this point, but it is nice to see some movement toward what could be something truly special.
Deadline says that Ellison is "bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively." Meaning that this new film will not just be a boring and meaningless film. This will be a new beginning, a fresh and exciting vision for the franchise.
At this point there is no word if Arnold Schwarzenegger would be a part of this new project, but it seems likely that he would appear in some capacity as he and Cameron go way back. This could be just what the franchise needs. A fresh start.
We will continue to bring you more on this story as we hear it.
