A new Terminator Trilogy will be back
Speaking to Australian news site
He went on to say that should they get past the early stages of story development there will be more news to come. "I think it’s fairly widely known that I don’t have a lot of respect for the films that were made later," he continued "I was supportive at the time in each case for Arnold’s [Schwarzenegger] sake because he is a close friend. He has been a mate of mine since 33 years ago so I was always supportive and never too negative. But they didn’t work for me for various reasons."
Cameron at least appears to be on the same page of many fans at the moment, adding: "The question is – has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up? Can it still have relevance now where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films. We live in a world of predator drones and surveillance and big data and emergent AI."
Of course, we all know that Avatar is taking up nearly all the room on his plate at the moment, so how much time and energy he can devote to re-energising the Terminator franchise is anyone's guess. A re-boot would be the only way to go, although perhaps things are best left as they are for the foreseeable future, and the box office performance of the Avatar sequels may prove to be key to that in the end.
