"I'm told that already, Universal, Sony and Lionsgate are looking hard at the package. Much like the Superman property, The Terminator has a ticking clock on the rights. There is a stipulation in copyright law that if you assign your rights, you get them back in 25 years. In this case, Cameron assigned his rights to Hemdale, and the North American rights will revert back to him in 2018. Now, Cameron has more or less washed his hands of the Terminator franchise, but I'm told a new deal would have to be made with him if the plan was to keep making Terminator installments beyond that period. There is plenty of time to make at least two Terminator films before that happens, and that might be sufficient to end the saga that so far has spanned four films. Any financier that makes those films owns them free and clear. Rumor is the project price tag is at least $25 million upfront, against a purchase price near $36 million, not including paydays for Schwarzenegger or Lin. It would stand to reason because of the amount Pacificor paid in 2010 and the interest it has carried since. I'm told there is no set price, but this will likely be a whopping sale by the time the dust has settled and the bidding is complete."
I'm all for another Terminator as long as Arnold deems it worthy and it has a strong concept behind it. Stay tuned for more on the project as news is revealed.
On a side note, Happy Birthday to Expendables star Amin Joseph!! I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Las Vegas Expendables Premiere and he was kind enough to indulge a fan in conversation and it was a true pleasure meeting him.
