Cameron Says the Terminator Franchise Has 'Run its Course'
I know this video already made its way around the web, but I think there are a few people who haven't seen it yet and it's a good one. The Terminator franchise hasn't been all that successful since James Cameron left it behind after T2 in 1991. Apparently McG couldn't even get Cameron to give him his blessings for Terminator Salvation and, well, we all know how that turned out. In a recent interview with Cameron, MTV decided to ask him about his thoughts on the Terminator franchise. You already know he's got great things to say in response, so I don't even need to mention anything else, you might as well fire this up and enjoy!
Way to go Jonathan Mostow and McG! The treatment they're talking about is the one by Bill Wisher that we wrote about last week, the same one that I thought was awesome. But, of course, Cameron's not coming back to this franchise ever again, so he either needs to let it go entirely (which it sounds like he already did) and let them keep screwing it up, or help get it on the right track. But since Cameron thinks the Terminator franchise has "run its course," that's that. But with ideas like Wisher's treatment floating around, I wonder if there still some potential for some director to still make a good Terminator movie. What do you think?
