Finally rumblings are emerging for another Terminator film. After the whole recent hullabaloo, $70 million animated pg-13 wish-wash, rights disputes, and bankruptcy we have some news. It may only be passing comments but it comes from a serious titan of production. In an interview with EW, producer of the first 3 Terminator films, Aliens, a credited writer for Terminator Salvation and former wife to James Cameron, Gale Anne Hurd who is currently producing the excellent The Walking Dead discussed the situation surrounding the rights to the series and basically said, if everything worked out, she’d love to do another one.
"It’s very sad. You feel like you gave birth to something and it’s been adopted and those adoptions haven’t worked out. Of course I’d be interested in doing another one. I’d love it."
Hurd is referring to Terminator Salvation, which was produced by the now bankrupt Halcyon, and the very public bidding war for the rights to the films earlier this year and the eventual purchase by Pacificor. So there may be light at the end of the tunnel after all, but where the hell is McG? Terminator Salvation took him from the darkside [i.e Charlies Angels]. Get him back there are scripts already written for a sequel to Salvation. For a detailed account of the recent bizarre journey the franchise has taken go here:
