New Terminator Movie to Be Sequel to the First Two

Let’s face it, there are only two truly great Terminator movies; Parts 3 and 4 had a few entertaining moments but they lacked the sense of impending doom and desperation that the original Terminator movies had.

Alan Taylor, who has just finished directing Thor: The Dark World is rumoured to be directing the new Terminator movie, according to The Terminator Fans.  Taylor recent said while doing press for Thor:

“Funny thing was it came out really early, a reminder of what the blogosphere can do. I had one conversation, didn’t tell anyone and then all of a sudden, BOOM, it was online the next day. So my agent said, ‘You probably should know [this is gonna come up].’ It’s progressed a lot since then, but I’m still officially going to call it a rumor. I’m under the personal policy to say it’s a rumor.”

It appears Taylor would want to take the Nolan style route of attempting to reinvent the series.

“We all love the first two and I actually went back and watched them again and my respect level only went up. I think there is another famous franchise that had a wonderful beginning and then turned a little bananas. Tim Burton‘s first Batman is just glorious and by the time it got around to nipples on costumes and all that stuff it sort of lost its way. And for (Christopher) Nolan to come in an say ‘I respect this material so much I’m going to take it up to *here,* that’s a great inspiration.’ I think any version, whoever is directing Terminator, would be very respectful and serve the first two and probably feel a bit more freedom by the end.”


What do you guys think? Are you interested in a new Terminator movie or should the franchise just be left alone? Personally, Terminator 2 is arguably my favourite movie of all time and can’t be improved upon. So I don’t know how they could do a new movie and make it half as good. On the plus side, at least Arnie is set to return in some capacity. The new movie is currently set for Summer 2015 so watch this space…
