James Cameron Thinks 'Terminator' Has Run Its Course

The helmer who worked on the the first and second 'Terminator' films says he has no desire to return to the franchise anymore since it is 'kind of been pissed in a little bit by other filmmakers.'

James Cameron apparently does not have the same vision with William Wisher, who partnered him in writing the scripts for first and second "Terminator" films. While the scribe has offered his idea for the possible "Terminator 5" and "Terminator 6", Cameron shows no interest to work on the franchise anymore.

"I have stepped so far away from the 'Terminator' universe," he told MTV during an interview, before adding "I'm happy with that. I made a decision a way's back to just let it have its life, you know?" Frankly speaking, the "Titanic" director claimed, "From my perspective, it's run its course and I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said."

He further explained, "Plus, frankly... the soup's kind of been pissed in a little bit by other filmmakers, so I don't have any personal desire to go back to it. So I certainly wouldn't want to be a dog in the manger and disallow my friends from making a little money off it. Why would I do that?"

As of late, William Wisher opened up that he has written a detailed 24-page treatment for the fifth "Terminator" film, and a 4-page concept outline for the sixth one. His ideas take place in a post-apocalyptic battleground and he plans to feature some of the original characters, such as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator, in addition to several new villains and plenty of firepower.

Meanwhile, "Terminator Salvation" director McG has previously uttered his plan to make two "Terminator" sequels following the fourth film. The filmmaker revealed that the issue of Kate Connor's pregnancy will be explored in the next sequels. He further said, "[In the next sequel,] we also study the genesis of Marcus, the coming of time travel and the fate of John Connor himself."

I agree with Cameron. The Terminator franchise has gone the same way as the Alien franchise, where every movie after the second film is nothing but a low quality B movie that has none of the charm or appeal of the first two movies.

The Terminator series, and by series I mean the first two films, are perhaps the two greatest man vs machine films ever made. I am really starting to get worried that Hollywood is going to turn Terminator into the Matrix. For fucking sakes stop! The 3rd movie was awful and the 4th one was barley tolerable. But a 5th and 6ht? Plus the TV show? Stop milking money out of Camerons hard work,

HERE'S WHAT I THINK, AND I DON'T KNOW IF THEY DID THIS OR NOT, BUT I'LL JUST SAY IT! THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER LOST CAMERON'S INTEREST, IF HE DIDN'T WANT TO DIRECT IT, HAVE HIM PRODUCE IT AND SEE IF HE HAS ANY OPIONS ON WHAT SHOULD BE DONE HERE OR ABOUT THE CHARACTERS IN GENERAL. WHEN HE LEFT THE TERMINATOR FRANCHISE EVERYTHING WENT FROM GOOD SHIT TO BAD. ALTHOUGH SALVATION WAS ALRIGHT SHIT BECAUSE IT TALKED ABOUT THE ACTUAL WAR BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINES, THAN HAVE ANOTHER MODERN DAY VERSION LIKE THE OTHERS, IT WORKED OKAY FOR ME. IF THEY CAN DO A SEQUEL BETTER THAN SALVATION, AND HAVE MORE ORIGINAL IDEAS ABOUT SOME OF THE MOST LEGENDARY CHARACTERS IN THE TERMINATOR UNIVERSE INSTEAD, THEY CAN TAKE MCG SHIT AND TURN IT INTO CAMERON SHIT. I THINK THE SEQUELS WILL DO FINE AND THEY HAVE MY SUPPORT.

I think the first thing that should be done before making any more terminator movies is to fire McG. He did the OC, much different work than Terminator material. A bad choice.
