In 2019, James Cameron, who is currently at work on planning four sequels to his his sci-fi adventure Avatar, will be retaining the rights to another property he will be forever known for: The Terminator.
But what will Cameron have planned up his sleeve in terms of what to do with The Terminator once he gets those rights? Reports began to emerge over the weekend that Cameron may be producing a final film of the saga, which will put an end to the series’ prolific battle between the human race and Skynet, which was first announced in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
The most recent installment, Terminator: Genisys, which was endorsed to a minimum by Cameron due to the involvement of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the series’ star (with the exception of Terminator Salvation, in which stand-in Roland Kickinger played the role), was a box-office bomb. It seems that Cameron’s involvement in a new installment is vital to finally put an end to this film series, which began over thirty three years ago.
Reports are also saying that while Cameron will serve as producer and perhaps, writer of this “final” installment, a director is being eyed in the form of Tim Miller, who helmed the hit superhero film Deadpool.
