Last week we learned that an investment advisor called Pacificor had won the Terminator rights at auction, beating the likes of Lionsgate and Sony. This means that we can expect more Terminator movies in the future, as Pacificor will no doubt want to get their money’s worth out of them.
The auction was followed by buzz that William Wisher, writer of the first and second Terminator movies (the good ones) has written a treatment for Terminator 5 and 6. This would be cool if something became of it; however it’s still early days yet. Even if the original writer returns to the franchise, James Cameron made it quite clear to MTV that he wouldn’t be.
Where do you want the Terminator franchise to go from here? Should it die? Do you want a reboot, or did Terminator Salvation leave you wanting a Terminator 5?
