Well, it actually looks like the next Terminator movie (*cough ATROCITY cough*) is somewhat underway. IGN got to talk to James Middleton (consulting producer of the FOX TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) about the details and questions fans wanted to know about the new Terminator sequel that’s bound to suck….I mean, thrill. In the interview he mentioned how the same writing team from Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines are onboard and they have yet to find a director, but will very shortly. (Hmm….sounds promising already!) They also are planning and hoping to go into pre-production by October of THIS year.
IGN gives us this quote from James Middleton:
It will follow the events of T3 and be post-apocalyptic. It’s not known whether Nick Stahl and Claire Danes will return, but John Connor and Kate Brewster are in the script. Middleton said the participation of Stahl and Danes would depend on many factors, including the thoughts of the eventual director and others involved. Also, while John and Kate are part of the story, the movie will feature a new hero as the main character. Middleton likened it to how “Ben-Hur was influenced by Jesus Christ, but it was his story. Much in that way, this character will be influenced by John Connor.”
Okay….does anyone else feel like they’re going to explode or is it just me? Are they serious to think that anyone wants to see another Terminator film without the actual TERMINATOR in it?! Honestly, the only reason why I watched the last film was because of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even he couldn’t make me forget the absence of Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong and of course, JAMES CAMERON. The last film was a slap in the face for true Terminator fans, and now they want to punch us in the gut as well?
This movie has no director. No one from the last film confirmed to return, and they’re planning on going into pre-production in OCTOBER?!
I feel like starting a “Boycott Terminator 4!” group on Facebook. Who’s with me? :P
