‘Terminator’ back for a new trilogy
Sorry folks, Arnie won’t be back.
The Halcyon Company has acquired the rights to the “Terminator” franchise and put “Terminator 4” into immediate pre-production.
Although original franchise star Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and original franchise director James Cameron are unlikely to play any role, the new “Terminator” film should be ready by early 2009, if not earlier. The film’s starting point will be a script treatment by John Brancato and Michael Ferris.
“With ‘T3,’ we included many incidental details and plot points that, along with the main narrative, set the stage for an entirely new set of inter-related stories covering the future adventures of John Connor and the Terminators,” says “T3” producer Moritz Borman. “This new Terminator trilogy will build upon the already huge worldwide Terminator fan base, which was both revitalized and expanded with the global success of ‘T3.'”
Released in the summer of 2003, “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” took in more than $425 million worldwide. Halcyon hopes that “Terminator 4” will serve as the launching point for a new trilogy.
Halcyon is a recently formed, privately financed film development, production and financing company, headed by co-CEOs Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, who will both serve as executive producers on any new “Terminator” feature properties. They bought out the rights from C2’s Mario Kassar and Andrew Vajna. The acquired rights include certain future revenues derived from “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,” plus certain (unspecified) rights in the FOX TV pilot “The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” which is considered a likely addition to the network’s upcoming slate.
“The Terminator franchise represents by far the most popular and successful franchise not owned by a major studio,” Kubicek says. “While we have several other projects in the works, we see this global franchise as a cornerstone of Halcyon’s future business plans.”
Anderson adds, “”We also plan to maximize the potential of the Terminator franchise by entering into strategic relationships with world class merchandising and licensing partners. By quickly pursuing and finalizing these new opportunities, we are confident that all of these ventures can be completed in time to fully maximize their value.”
