Terminator has been given yet another chance to revive this tired and terrible franchise with a brand new film having just been announced. Yes that’s correct and frankly besides money I honestly don’t know why. I suppose it may have something to do with James Cameron returning and bringing in Deadpool director Tim Miller. Apparently Cameron is ‘godfathering’ the project which I assume means he’s the Executive Producer and will have a lot of creative control.
Cameron regains the rights to the Terminator franchise in 2019 so it’ll be a while until we see anything, plus he’s got those four (why four?!) Avatar sequels to work on in the mean time.
David Ellison of Skydance productions is said to be financing the project which includes finding a science fiction author who can come up with a plausible story. Ellison still holds a lot of the rights to Terminator which he bought from his sister, Megan Ellison who is over at Annapurna. She bought them in 2011 in Cannes for $20 million.
At the moment no one is saying if the plan is to be a reboot, a continuation or whether it’ll ignore certain franchise ruining films entirely but Miller is set to direct whatever screenplay is given to him. Let’s hope it’s at least kind of decent and doesn’t give away plot twists in the trailer. Thank you Genisys.
To have the chance to see some of your favourite memorabilia and props from some of your most beloved films, really is something quite special and unique. It’s a very rare opportunity so when you have the chance to see these random items and be up close and personal close to any of these objects, take it! I was lucky enough to have an exhibition in London so I went down to the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, London as Prop Store were holding a special event before their live auction, which took place on September 27.
What I saw made me have a huge geekgasm, it was very exciting and the perfect place for me! There were signed scripts and books, props from Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2, Star Trek, The Martian, 24, Gladiator and too many more to name. The auction has gone live and people are currently bidding thousands on items such as the Bat Pod, costumes from Star Trek, original storyboards from Star Wars, FBI badges from The X Files, clapperboards from countless films and a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
So if you’ve got a bottomless pit of cash, chances are you’ll be bidding on these items already! I know what I’d get first, the Batpod! Take a look and see what I saw the other day. What would you bid on?
Lucky me! 😉
