Fans of James Cameron’s films may be looking forward to the Avatar sequel on the horizon, but they can also expect to see the director’s classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day back in theaters when it returns to cinemas next year in a new 3-D version. 

China-based DMG Entertainment announced Wednesday that it’s partnering with Studiocanal and Cameron to produce a special 3-D rerelease of the 1991 film. The two companies plan to release the film worldwide sometime in 2016, starting with China, where Terminator 2 is popular despite never having being given a theatrical release.

“For a whole new generation of fans, it is truly a chance to see the movie that really set the bar for action and effects that all the movies today are trying to top, in a completely new way – in the theater and in 3-D,” Dan Mintz, CEO of DMG Entertainment, said in a statement.

Added Cameron, “Next year marks the 25th anniversary of Terminator 2 and that seemed like the perfect time to bring it back but this time in an all-new 3-D version.”

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
