James Cameron recently discussed the Terminator franchise and how he is considering relaunching the series. Cameron said of Terminator: Dark Fate, “I think I’m actually reasonably happy with the film.” He continued, “Tim and I had our battles, and we’ve both spoken about that, but the crazy thing is we’re still pals. Which is weird. I liked him before the movie, didn’t like him very much during the movie, and I like him now, and I think he feels the same way.” He added, “I think the movie could have survived having Linda in it, I think it could have survived having Arnold in it, but when you put Linda and Arnold in it and then, you know, she’s 60-something, he’s 70-something, all of a sudden it wasn’t your Terminator movie, it wasn’t even your dad’s Terminator movie, it was your granddad’s Terminator movie. And we didn’t see that. And young moviegoing audiences weren’t born. They wouldn’t even have been born for another ten years.” He continued, “Well, the Avatar films are about the environment; I’m not dealing with AI. If I were to do another Terminator film and maybe try and to launch that franchise again, which is in the discussion, but nothing has been decided, I would make it much more about the AI side of it than bad robots gone crazy.”
