James Cameron is getting Terminator back and wants Tim Miller to direct

Terminator Genisys was a great idea, but ended up being a bit of a mess. The recent Terminator movies keep trying to fix things that didn’t need fixing and just ended up making things worse.

However, it looks like there is still hope for the series of films.

James Cameron gets back some rights to The Terminator in 2019 and he is planning on overseeing a new film, which may be a reboot and/or a conclusion to the story. Deadline have the news that he is in early talks with Deadpool director Tim Miller to direct.

Cameron sold the rights to the original for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with the agreement that Cameron would be allowed to direct The Terminator. That earned $78.4 million and Terminator 2: Judgment Day made $519.8 million worldwide.

David Ellison, whose Skydance co-financed Terminator Genisys, is financing and talking with top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively. Ellison still holds many Terminator rights, after his 2013 acquisition from sister and Annapurna principal Megan Ellison. She bought them in 2011 at Cannes for $20 million.

That’s about all we know at the moment, but with Cameron being involved there is the potential for a good Terminator movie, but is it all too late? Will Arnold Schwarzenegger be involved?

What would you like to see in a new Terminator film?
