On Aug. 25, James Cameron’s science fiction blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgment Day returns to cinemas in a new, 3D version, and it seems that the director himself may soon be returning to the franchise he kicked off with 1984’s The Terminator. The U.S. rights to the characters Cameron created will soon revert to the director, and in a recent interview the Avatar filmmaker revealed he has been in talks with producer David Ellison about helping to revive the series. But how likely is that to happen?
“I would say, at this point, it’s looking very likely,” Cameron told EW earlier this month. “We’re starting to get the pieces pulled together, and we’ll probably have something to say on that fairly soon.”
Is it true that Cameron is plotting a trilogy of Terminator films?
“I like trilogies, but I’m not going to comment on that right now,” said the filmmaker. “It all depends on whether the first one makes money.”
Would Arnold Schwarzenegger be involved?
“Well, that would be up to him,” said Cameron.
