Arnold Schwarzenegger’s -TERMINATOR, will reportedly not hit the big screen again, with sources claiming studio has called off a planned sequel. Hope this news is a hoax like his dead hoax story, but the rumours are going straight right till now.
According to some sources, Paramount, which owns the rights to the franchise, has planned not to bring back the sunglasses-wearing cyborg for further addition to the series. A source said that it is over for Terminator and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It added that the studio had taken the sequel off the production dead altogether, that means there is no preproduction or any plans for any sequel. The talent had been given long-term deals, but this is not happening.
The most recent addition to the Terminator series, Genisys, was released in 2015 and did not do well at the US box office. However, it did better internationally, particularly in China, and eventually earned $400m worldwide. But that international success doesn’t seem enough to save the franchise. A sequel to the film was terminated from Paramount’s 2017 release schedule last year and now appears to have been put on one side. Well, the series has been dead and discontinued!!
The Genisys movie was seen as a way of bringing round the franchise, but the critics were not satisfied, and somehow the studio bosses fell out of love with making more or dean regarding material, even though they made significant profits.
Arnold Schwarzenegger initially played the Terminator (T-800), a cyborg sent back in time to murder a woman pregnant with the leader of a future resistance movement, in the 1984 film of the same name. The role made Arnold Schwarzenegger a worldwide star, and he went on to work in two sequels, Judgment Day (1991) and Rise of the Machines (2001). He had a small cameo in the widely panned fourth sequel Salvation in 2009, before appearing as a lead for Genisys once again.
There were reports in January that James Cameron is planning to rescue the films when he wins back partial rights to the franchise in 2019 by giving it a story that gives Terminator the conclusion it so rightly deserves. It isn’t clear how Paramount’s reported decision will affect Cameron’s plan to reboot. The director is presently working on four sequels to his fantasy film Avatar.
