James Cameron Speaks About Terminator Series

October 17th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Legendary film maker James Cameron has made numerous fantastic movies in the past. Two of his most iconic arguably are those in the Terminator series.

Though he has no part in the Terminator Genysis saga that’s upcoming, he did have some thoughts about it and its crew.

“I’m friendly with the filmmakers, the writer Laeta Kalogridis has worked with me on projects. I’m hoping it’s great. I’d like them to get it right, and based on the script that I read there’s a pretty good chance that it could. It looks like it could be fun.”

Of course, there are those who would think if these movies did bad they could ruin his legacy…

“It’s not my problem! It’s like being a grandparent, the kids come over and you can send them back! When I walked away from the franchise, I had to do it with the sense that I can invest in emotion. To me, it’s all upside, because if it’s good, it’s good for Arnold (Schwarzenegger), my friend Laeta and if it’s not good? It doesn’t bother me personally.”

What a guy. Oh, and does Cameron want to return to the franchise when he gets the rights back in 2019?

“I haven’t really thought that far ahead yet. I’ve got plenty of time to think about it. It might be fun to completely re-invent the franchise. A lot has to do with what happens with it in the meantime, people may have Terminator fatigue.”
