I was one of the few who actually gave McG a chance on directing a “Terminator” film. And, while enjoyed “Terminator: Salvation”(to a certain degree) McG’s directing was just awful. But, with the box-office for the film pretty much being a failure, you would think that McG would be the last person to ever be signed onto a “Terminator” film again, right? And not to mention if the new studio would allow him to direct. But, he revealed that he is sill planning on returning for Terminator 5:
This doesn’t mean he will return, just that he plans to return, but I seriously doubt he will. And, if he is planning of using his concept for the film, then I’m not even gonna see the film. Because, his concept of sending HK’s back in time is just gonna ruin continuity even more. However, this all depends on who wins the rights to the franchise:
“Over the past few weeks, Halcyon and its professionals have engaged in in-depth discussions and negotiations with numerous serious potential buyers, including several major movie studios,” Halcyon said.
So, it all depends on the new company. But, like I said in another post, just have James Cameron buy the franchise.
Would you like to see McG direct Terminator 5?
