Why James Cameron Decided To Return To The Terminator Franchise

Written by  Cinemablend

Few beloved blockbuster series have a history quite as hit or miss as The Terminator. The first two installments in the franchise have become regarded bonafide classics, but the films not handled by James Cameron have ranged from mediocre to downright bad.

Now it seems that's about to change in a substantial way. Looking to get back into The Terminator game, Cameron decided to go all in on a new direction for the franchise once he learned that he could regain the rights that he had previously sold off. The director explained:

When I became aware of the fact that I could back into a control position on the rights, then I started to ask myself artistically, 'Is there anything there? Is there anything to be said that I haven't already said, and that would even be relevant in the 2020s (when these hypothetical films would come out)?' I thought, 'Well, let's look at that.' I mean, a lot of the things that were science fiction in Terminator are now around us...and actual discussions on the ethics of having a robot have its own kill decision possibilities, things like that. It's actually happening. So okay, maybe there is room for a film that examines these themes.
