While the fate of "Terminator" franchise rights is yet to be known at least until February 2010 and the future of the film series is still in doubt, McG still plans another "Terminator" film. During the BD-Live commentary on "Terminator Salvation", the director announced that he is making a sequel to the Christian Bale-starring movie.

Moreover, McG has had an idea to feature Sarah Connor in the next film, "but he's not sure how he's going to pull that off," Jason Chen from Gizmodo reported. The helmer went on teasing fans by saying that he wanted to make another one after finishing with the fifth "Terminator" film.

Before "Terminator Salvation" hit theaters, McG had hinted there will be two more films. Speaking with MTV in May, he revealed that the issue of Kate Connor's pregnancy will be explored in the next sequels. He additionally shared his long term plan for the next "Terminator" movie, saying "[In the next sequel,] we also study the genesis of Marcus, the coming of time travel and the fate of John Connor himself."

The last "Terminator" film, "Terminator Salvation" was released in May this year and has collected a worldwide gross of $371.3 million. The story follows the time human survivors join John Connor and his resistance army in the battle against Skynet. Beside Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Helena Bonham Carter are also among the cast ensemble.

Meanwhile, current owners of the rights to the "Terminator" franchise, The Halcyon Co., have auctioned off the the franchise rights and the deal is expected to be reached by February 1, 2010. The company recently released a statement that was obtained by Variety, mentioning "Over the past few weeks, Halcyon and its professionals have engaged in in-depth discussions and negotiations with numerous serious potential buyers, including several major movie studios."

In all honesty, i would have to agree. The movies do keep getting better. THe storylines are amazing and intriguing... Salvatoin was by far one of the best of all of them.. And i would very much like to know how time travel was possible in the series... XP

Terminator salvation was by far the best and most on the edge of your seat addition to the terminator franchise! I can't wait to see what is in store for us next. Whatever they got planned to follow this has alot to live up to. I have faith that which ever way you go will be as intense and action packed as salvation was. They just keep getting better. Good luck and i cant wait to see what ya'll come up with next.
