Re: Terminator 5

I don't get into the mythology of the franchise much. Like most people, I felt the first two were on their way to something awesome and relatively intelligent, but the second two derailed. At this point, I just watch them for the fun of seeing robots and humans interact and blow shit up. Because of that, I'm completely ok with another movie. Even if it centered on a completely different group of resistance fighters, no problem here.

One of the original scripts from T3 (from the late 90s) actually took place during the Civil War and had him doing just that.

I like it. I'd also like to see a period piece Predator film.

I don't remember much from it since it was a very long time ago, but it's not that hard to be better than T3.

Wow. Other than Back to the Future, the "old west" was a throwaway thing that all those 90's TV shows did. It made a little bit of sense when From Dusk Till Dawn did it.

The trouble with that is how much you would alter the future. Skynet was probably in motion during T1 and T2.

If the old west is good enough for Tremors it's good enough for The Terminator, damn it!

Re: Terminator 5

The Terminator was pretty hard to kill in 1984 and whatever year T2 was to take place (1994? 1996?) I can only imagine the sheer impossibility of doing any damage to one in the 1880's.

But a Wild West Terminator story sounds like something Dark Horse comics would have cooked up.

"Steampunk Batman vs Terminator".

Re: Terminator 5

http://www.deadline.com/2012/12/mega...inator-reboot/

Well, today Deadline.com posted a little write up on what's happening and there really is no news. The movie is in development hell right now. No Script, No Studio, No stars. Just a bunch of Producers. David Ellison was just brought into this development hell. His sister is already involved with the project. Ellison is the founder of Skydance Productions and they will co-Produce the movie, if it ever gets made.

It says the rights to the franchise go back to James Cameron in 2019.

For intents and purposes, the original Terminator was an Independent film. Why can't they just finance the movie independently? Give it like a $30-50M budget or so. Waiting for a major studio to finance it is going to take forever, especially with no script.

Re: Terminator 5

Yeah, it ended with T2.

Because imagining what happened after the end of T2 is far more awesome than the movies we got.

Re: Terminator 5

From Collider:

The new Terminator film has taken another step forward closer to production. Last month we learned that Megan Ellison’s brother, David Ellison, had come aboard the project to co-produce the next installment of the franchise through his Skydance Pictures banner alongside Megan’s Annapurna Pictures, and now the producers have tapped a couple of writers to start work on the script. Deadline reports that Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will write the script for the new Terminator film, though further details are understandably being kept under wraps.

Kalogridis previously penned the scripts for Shutter Island and Alexander, as well as the pilot for the TV series Bionic Woman. Lussier, meanwhile, was responsible for writing 2011’s Drive Angry and received a “story by” credit on Dracula 2000, which he also directed. As I mentioned, we know next to nothing about where this new Terminator stands in relation to the previous films, but Megan Ellison has confirmed that it will indeed be rated R. With screenwriters now firmly onboard, expect to hear more news regarding the next Terminator sooner rather than later.

***********************************************

Lussier? Oy vey.

Bad news...

I respect Lussier's ability to make a career out of low budget films, but he's not who I would equate to an "A-list" writer. He's more upper level "B-list".

As for Laeta Kalogridis... Aside from Shutter Island and being attached to the long rumored Battle Angel... No. I'd like to know how she ended up with an Executive Producer credit on Avatar. An early un-credited draft?

Re: Terminator 5

Since Lussier's name is now attached to write the script, maybe Dimension Films is a front runner to pick up T5?

From what I know of Lussier's work, he's more associated with B action/horror movies. Most of his resume comes as an editor. He only has the 3 Dracula movies and Drive Angry as his writing credits.

He also directed the My Bloody Valentine remake. I dig that one.

Re: Terminator 5

I want to say that I do think he's competent working within the horror genre, more or less, but his selection as a writer on what should be a major tentpole film speaks volumes about where they're setting the bar.

She's been around for a while and has worked with Cameron on more than one project.

Laeta Kalogridis wrote a spec script about Joan of Arc titled In Nomine Dei. She sold the script to Warner Bros. in April 1994, but a film was not produced. Kalogridis has also been involved in writing the following planned films:

March 1995: Writer of early script for X-Men (2000)

Late 1999: Uncredited work on Scream 3

September 2000: Screenwriting credit for Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

September 2003: Rewrite of the Wonder Woman live action film adaptation of the superheroine for Warner Bros.

January 2005: Remake of The Lone Ranger for Columbia Pictures

November 2005: Borgia, an ImageMovers film about a powerful family in 15th century Rome

February 2006: The Dive, director James Cameron's planned film about the freediver Francisco "Pipin" Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre

January 2007: Battle Angel, director James Cameron's planned film based on the manga Battle Angel Alita

October 2007: Rewrite of the vampire film Darksiders for New Line Cinema

Adapting the Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell for DreamWorks

Re: Terminator 5

I'm still hoping they do a direct "Salvation" sequel someday, because I loved that film. It was a refreshing departure from the tired time-travel formula, and I'd love to see Anton Yelchin channel more of Michael Biehn. Arnold's way too old for the series now.

Re: Terminator 5

The last I heard was about Arnold was having a "non-anchoring" role in it, but that was 5 months ago.

Arnold needs to move away from this franchise. Fucks sakes.
