MTV has an interview up with James Cameron on his thoughts on Salvation and wether he wants those Terminator rights or not.
I’m going to provide the Cameron quotes here and a link to the original source at the bottom of the article.
How/Where he saw it:
“I have seen it, and unfortunately I saw it the wrong way, on cable at the hotel, while I was working, over three nights because I don’t have much time,” Cameron said. “It’s better than I thought it was going to be.”
Later he goes into more detail:
“It’s actually quite reverential to the mythos of the ‘Terminator’ world,” he said. “I think McG and the writers tried hard to keep reacquainting you with some of those ideas in the story that they were weaving. So actually I thought it was pretty cool. I did feel that it sort of lacked Je ne sais quoi. Although I love Sam [Worthington] in it. “
On the Terminator rights he had this to say:
“No, ‘Terminator’ is way in my rear-view at this point, kind of made my emotional break with it, back when I was finishing ‘Titanic,’ believe it or not,” he said. “A very similar conversation cropped up at that time because the rights were in play at that point…. I was thinking about [a third ‘Terminator’ film] but I had decided emotionally to be done with it, and it just feels like last millennium stuff for me, at this point. Now it’s been a TV show, and two films since, and trying to go back and reshape it like that stuff didn’t exist doesn’t make sense.”
So there you have it.
As I thought Cameron has no interest in returning to Terminator at all.
