The Terminator Films Can Not Be Terminated

Just because Arnold Schwarzenegger has purportedly bid adieu to the legendary franchise doesn’t necessarily mean The Terminator is dead – far from it, in fact, with Skydance head honcho David Ellison revealing to Collider that the series has “an incredibly bright future.”

Not only that, but Ellison went on to tease a major franchise announcement for 2017, indicating that James Cameron and Tim Miller’s nebulous reboot may well be further along than many had anticipated. That’s merely conjecture for now, though, considering that we only learned of said revival two months ago. Couple this with Cameron’s ongoing commitment to his 27 Avatar sequels and one would assume that it’s still too early in the project’s lifecycle to warrant an announcement.

Even still, while chatting to Collider, Ellison stressed that this news “is the direction [The Terminator] needs to head,” which is exciting in and of itself. After scrapping plans for a trilogy of Genisys movies, Skydance has evidently done some soul-searching when it comes to the future of the series, and at least based on Ellison’s status report, fans can retain a sense of cautious optimism.
“I will say we have resolved the future of the franchise and believe me it’s an incredibly bright future. I think where it’s going will be the continuation of what the fans really wanted since T2. We have something this year that we will be announcing for the franchise. It’s something we’re incredibly excited about and we think is the direction it needs to head.”

So, there you have it; the war between humanity and Skynet rages on in 2017, but it remains to be seen exactly what Ellison is teasing here. Chances are that said announcement will involve James Cameron and Tim Miller’s embryonic franchise revival in some capacity, but it’s surely too early to lock down a specific release date for the project, considering that there’s been nary a mention of story or potential casting. Either way, what do you make of David Ellison’s status report on The Terminator? Drop your thoughts, comments and concerns in the usual spot below.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Featurette “Legacy”

Watch the new “Legacy” featurette, as Kevin Feige joins other filmmakers and the cast of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR to chronicle the growth and success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its auspicious beginning with “Iron Man” in 2008 to the upcoming tour de force “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.”

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

David Leitch Directing Hobbs & Shaw Spin-Off

As Universal guns the engine on the first planned spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise, the studio has pinpointed the person it wants to wrangle Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the film. John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the film.

It makes sense that a film featuring the two would demand a director who has proven they can bring action scenes to life, and Leitch – who moved from stunt co-ordination and second unit work to co-direct the first Wick with Chad Stahelski – has certainly shown he's got the flair for it.

Chris Morgan has written the script for the new film, which doesn't yet have a name, but should boast Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's recently redeemed Deckard Shaw on their own mission, minus any candy asses. Universal wants this one in cinemas for July next year, and so it needs the wheels to hit the road quickly.

Leitch's most recent job was directing Deadpool 2, which opens in the UK on 16 May and has jus…
