One of the biggest (and most successful) movie franchises is set to be auctioned off this month, and if you've got deep pockets (like millions of dollars deep) then you can own the Terminator and everything that goes along with him (batteries not included…we don't think).
A rarity in Hollywood, Terminator is one of the only giant franchises left that isn't owned by a particular studio. Halcyon, the production company that currently owns the rights, is having major bankruptcy issues, which is what's causing the franchise to be auctioned off in the first place. Strangely enough, this is the second time in as many months that a massive franchise has been auctioned off. Last month the rights to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise were also auctioned off for about $60 million, though sources say the Terminator rights will fetch a lot more.
Among the studios interested in Terminator are Sony and Summit Entertainment, the former of which is listed as the current frontrunner. If a studio does pick up the Terminator rights, chances are they'll reboot the entire franchise before continuing along the route that McG began paving with Terminator Salvation.
Which would you rather see – a complete Terminator reboot, or a sequel to McG's Terminator Salvation?
but my main point is bring Arnold Schwarzenegger back for sure, keep bale i dont really care who directs, but DONT REBOOT! seriously i love T1 and T2 but T3 and T4 were awesome too! i dont see any reason why they cant continue the storyline salvation was the best one of the series!
if i had to name the movies in order of how good they were (from best to worst) id say it like this:
3.)Terminator 3:rise of the machines
i'd like to see a sequel.. I liked all 4 terminator movies and i'd hate to have to wait another 10 years to catch up to where we are at now if they rebooted it. Bale's a good john connor i dont care what everyone else says, sure bring back james cameron as the director,but keep the movie going in the same direction, regardless of how well salvation did, if it was so bad then maybe the new director, whoever so chooses to fill in that spot, can improve on it and maybe the 5th will be more well-liked? i think they should go with the original plan make a 5th and 6th focusing on continuing the future war and i heard they were planning to make the story of the 5th about connor going back in time or somethin like that.BRING BACK ARNOLD FOR SURE!!!
I'm actually down for a reboot as the McG sequel was somewhat lacking. I'm willing to forget T3 ever happened, too. Get Cameron back, throw in Michael Biehn, see if Arnold's available, return to Cameron's visual style, and emphasize story plus action, it will be all good. Anybody got $80 million to loan?
I would rather see a sequel. A complete reboot would be ridiculous and sometimes reboots don't go over so well.
