Arnie has signed up and it has been revealed there will be three new stand alone movies based on the premise that the series will be a reboot!
What's wrong with the studios, don't they like original screenplays anymore? Don't they like being creative? Or is it the lure of a cgi money making strategy.
It really does upset me. Soon we will be watching reboots of reboots...batman, spiderman anyone?
Sick of it really, the original Terminator should not be touched. I even enjoyed Bale's movie, it was great, I don't why it got the slagging off it did? It set up a premise of the war that I would have liked to have seen some more of.
Oh well let's see how they destroy the legacy.
Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures have jointly announced they will partner on a rebooted Terminator movie, to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 26, 2015.
