Well this went by while my internet was down but I don’t see it being talked about very much across the web- so I’ll bring it up myself.
Recently SyFy which is owned by NBC Universal picked up the rights to air both seasons of the awesome Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles.
On February 16 it was announced that Universal Pictures was interested in the Terminator FILM RIGHTS to make a Terminator 5.
Justin Lin would be directing from a script by Chris Morgan (Cellular/Wanted/Tokyo Drift/Fast & Furious).
This alone would make the new questionable but with the SyFy airing both seasons of T:SCC it’s obvious that there’s some serious consideration going on here from Universal into the Terminator universe.
This could mean a few steps back to a leaner, sleeker, more story driven Terminator experience like the original, and if you ask me that’s good news.
What do you think?
