Re: Terminator 5

I'd only be interested if they found a clever way to bring Linda Hamilton back.

Re: Terminator 5

I know of one way they can resurrect this franchise to a whole new level. By bringing in Arnold's son:

Spoiler for size:

Seriously...bulk up more and he could be the next Terminator.

Someone put together a great fan trailer, with Linda and an older Eddie Furlong.

Paramount is close to acquiring the rights to the franchise.

Not surprised. The other Megan Elison's brother David runs Skydance, who's been producing good action movies at Paramount.

Re: Terminator 5

I just hope these Ellison siblings aren't related to sci-fi writer Harlan, because his claims that Cameron ripped him off are ludicrous.

The judge didn't seem to think it was ludicrous.

Judges aren't always right. Harlan claimed that Cameron stole ideas from two "Outer Limits" episodes he'd written. The first was about two human soldiers sent back in time by accident, which doesn't match Cameron's mythos at all. The second, "Demon with a Glass Hand", involved aliens taking over the world, not machines.

Besides, is it really so hard to believe that two talented writers can come up with (vaguely) similar ideas completely on their own?

Re: Terminator 5

Ellison's lawsuit against the Terminator was settled out-of-court with the production company. I don't think it ever made it to court.

I believe that the basis of Ellison's suit was an interview Cameron gave where he mentioned getting the idea for The Terminator from an old Outer Limits episode. I'm unsure where this interview was from, as I've never read it or even seen a mention of where it was published.

I always felt Cameron stole his ideas from Days of Future Past (X-Men).

Cameron apparently mentioned it to a writer from Starlog. Not sure if the article was ever published.

Edit: I just re-watched the video and apparently that portion of the article was cut before it went to print.

Re: Terminator 5

Home video had not been around very long when the first "Terminator" was made; it was hardly "popular" as Ellison claimed. The similarities between his stories and the franchise are superficial at best. I'd like to know why none of these outside "sources" have ever come forward publicly, because it seems like Ellison has the bigger ego. There's a far cry between being inspired by someone else's work and "ripping it off".

Re: Terminator 5

I've never really thought about it before but the first Terminator film does kind of feel like a feature length Twilight Zone episode. Someone should do a good re-edit of the film down to the length of a Twilight Zone episode. I think that would be pretty cool.

Re: Terminator 5

The Terminator movies changed distributors/production companies so many times over the years.

T1: was an Indie film for all intents and purposes and Orion distributed it.

T2: Produced by Carolco, distributed by Tri-Star Pictures

T3: Produced by C2, distributed by WB

T4: Produced by Halcyon, distributed by WB

T5: now this one is being produced by Skydance and most likely being distributed by Paramount.


Has any other film franchise changed production companies, distributors this much?

It feels more like an episode of The Outer Limits, actually.

I haven't seen an Outer Limits episode since I was a kid so I honestly couldn't remember a difference between the two.

Maybe the Godzilla films, but that's all I can think of.

Re: Terminator 5

Toho has made all it's films. Distribution wise it may get tricky. G vs. KK is universal's, maybe just here...I'm not sure. The US G was Sony. And it's now with WB under Legendary.

Point of order: Toho was and still is the main rights holder to the IP of Godzilla. They have sold theatrical and home video rights to various groups over the years, but at the end of the day, they all answer to Toho.

Re: Terminator 5

Really makes me wish that CC would get 2-6 of the films. After that the Showa series gets really iffy for me. I do like G vs. MG though.

I want to see The Rock as the new Terminator. Not Arnie.
