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

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).

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
