Terminator franchise is back in production hell as it’s indefinitely put on hold

October 4th, 2015 by Irwin Fletcher Comments


It would seem that Arnold won’t be back any time in the near future. As many are aware, Terminator: Genisys, underperformed at the box office this summer, as well as receiving a number of poor reviews.

Despite two sequels and a TV series being in the works, pre-production on all of them has come to a complete stop. According to a recent report from THR, the film’s producer, David Ellison, “wasn’t listening to anybody, when it came to actually developing it, which ultimately led to the failure of the reboot”.

Personally, I am somewhat disappointed at this. While I do feel that there were some flaws with Terminator: Genisys, I did find it an enjoyable film, undeserving of the critical mauling it received. In fact, if I can be completely honest, I actually preferred it to Jurassic World.

With all of this in mind, I don’t think we’ve seen the end of the Terminator franchise. Hollywood seems determined to try and turn this film into a franchise, so any hold on the project will probably be short lived (even though the logical conclusion to the series was T2).
