Terminator 5 and 6? The writer of 1 and 2 has some ideas

Posted by LiveFor on February 12, 2010

The rights to Terminator got settled recently with Pacificor taking the cyborgs by the horns. What Terminator fans want to know now is what comes next for the Terminator universe.

Mike Fleming over at Deadline Hollywood has the news that William Wisher, has scripted a detailed 24-page treatment for Terminator 5, and a 4-page concept outline for Terminator 6. Who’s William Wisher? He is James Cameron’s writing partner for the first two Terminator films. Fleming has read the treatments for the sequel and here is what he had to say about it:

I think Wisher has done a terrific job with a plot that accepts the storylines from Jonathan Mostow’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and McG’s Terminator: Salvation. Most interestingly, he turns the story back to the core characters and time travel storyline of the first two films that Wisher crafted with Cameron.

Wisher’s 2-picture construct takes place in a post-apocalyptic battleground, and factors in an element of time travel that allows for Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese to interact beyond their single fateful meeting when he traveled back in time to protect her in the original film. Wisher has created a role for Arnold Schwarzenegger that is as surprising as his shift from villain in the first film, to John Connor’s bodyguard in the second. Schwarzenegger wouldn’t be needed until the final film, which wouldn’t shoot until after he ends his term as California Governor. And who wouldn’t want to see Linda Hamilton back in aerobic top fitness form as Sarah Connor?

There are several new villains, and plenty of firepower. For instance, a swarm of “Night Crawlers,” 4 1/2-foot tall border sentries that are set like mines to spring up out of the ground and ambush rebel fighters with 10 MM pistols built into their wrists, and fingers and feet that are razor sharp. Also fresh off the Skynet assembly line are new shape-shifting cyborgs that can morph together in Transformers-like mode, and are more lethal than anything we’ve seen in previous Terminator installments.

Wisher presents a satisfying conclusion to what by then would be a 6-picture struggle between Skynet’s machines and John and Sarah Connor to preserve a future that allows mankind to prevail over the machines.

None of this may come to pass but ow good does all that sound. I want to see those movies right now. Hollywood are you listening to me? Get it sorted – I have spoken.

What do you think about Wisher’s ideas for 5 and 6?

The Random – Ghostbusters 3, Daredevil reboot, 24 film, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, Terminator rights sold, Hanna, 127 Hours, Jane Eyre, The Fields, Thomas Crown Affair 2

Posted by LiveFor on February 9, 2010

– Bill Murray has sort of confirmed the rumour started by Sigourney Weaver a while back, “I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost,” said Murray in a new interview “I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.” I just think he is taking the piss.

– Marvel’s Daredevil will get another chance on the big screen as David Scarpa, the man who wrote the recent remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still is writing a new DD script….doesn’t fill me with much hope that the character will get the treatment he deserves. The main reason for the reboot is that Fox’s rights to the character would revert back to Marvel if they didn’t make it.Will Jason Statham be Matt Murdock?

– Jack Bauer may be heading to the big screen for a 24 film. Still early days, but Kiefer Sutherland is up for it and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass, Breach) has pitched the studios about it. Would be set in Europe, but I have to say what’s the point of taking a series that is set over a day and condensing it into a 2 hour action film?

– Steven Soderbergh has another film in the works called Contagion. According to The Playlist, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law have all started negotiations to star in the film, which is written by The Informant! screenwriter Scott Z Burns. It’ll follow multiple plotlines across four continents as a virus begins to spread, and terrifying events follow.

– Sony Pictures and Lionsgate bid on the rights for the Terminator franchise. However, according to Deadline, Halcyon Holding Corp accepted the $29.5 million bid from the debtholder which pushed it into bankruptcy, Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor. (This is the same Pacificor whom Halcyon accused in a lawsuit of extortion, bribery, and fraud and demanded $30M in damages.)

– Cate Blanchett will join Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana in Hanna. The Joe Wright-directed Focus Features drama that casts Ronan as a 14-year old assassin.

– Amber Tamblyn will play the female lead opposite James Franco in 127 Hours. The Danny Boyle film about Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who cut off his arm with a dull knife to save his life after being unable to free the limb from under a boulder. Tamblyn will play his girlfriend, with their relationship played out in flashbacks that keep him going.

– Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) has landed the title role of Jane Eyre, the Cary Fukunaga (sin Nombre) directed adaptation of the Charlotte Bronte novel.

– Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) has signed on to star in Ami Canaan Mann’s very dark thriller The Fields reports Production Weekly. Based on a true story, Worthington would play a homicide detective from Texas investigating a strong of unsolved murders amidst the oil refineries in the state’s south-east with the help of a peer from New York.

– On the progress of the Thomas Crown Affair sequel, actor Pierce Brosnan said this week that “We’ve got the fourth script in and this is the closest we’ve gotten in structure to making sense. It’s very very hard. Now we have the character, it’s not really fleshed out, so we have to work on him, Mr. Crown, and her, Miss Moore, another affair, more art, but it has to be an unexpected surprise”

Joss Whedon will buy the Terminator franchise for $10000

Posted by LiveFor on November 2, 2009

joss-whedonRecently it was announced that the rights to the Terminator were going on sale. It will be by auction and it is rumoured that they will go for about $60 million dollars. Not a bad deal really.

Now a major mover and shaker in the film biz has put in an early bid acccording to an open letter Deadline Hollywood posted.

An Open Letter to the Terminator Owners. From a Very Important Hollywood Mogul

Dear Sirs/Ma’ams,

I am Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind Titan A.E., Parenthood (not the movie) (or the new series) (or the one where ‘hood’ was capitalized ’cause it was a pun), and myriad other legendary tales. I have heard through the ‘grapevine’ that the Terminator franchise is for sale, and I am prepared to make a pre-emptive bid RIGHT NOW to wrap this dealio up. This is not a joke, this is not a scam, this is not available on TV. I will write a check TODAY for $10,000, and viola! Terminator off your hands.

No, you didn’t miscount. That’s four — FOUR! — zeroes after that one. That’s to show you I mean business. And I mean show business. Nikki Finke says the Terminator concept is played. Well, here’s what I have to say to Nikki Finke: you are a fine journalist and please don’t ever notice me. The Terminator story is as formative and important in our culture — and my pretend play — as any I can think of. It’s far from over. And before you Terminator-Owners (I have trouble remembering names) rush to cash that sweet cheque, let me give you a taste of what I could do with that franchise:

1) Terminator… of the Rings! Yeah, what if he time-travelled TOO far… back to when there was dragons and wizards? (I think it was the Dark Ages.) Hasta La Vista, Boramir! Cool, huh? “Now you gonna be Gandalf the Red!” RRRRIP! But then he totally helps, because he’s a cyborg and he doesn’t give a s#&% about the ring — it has no power over him! And he can carry it AND Frodo AND Sam AND f@%& up some orcs while he’s doing it. This stuff just comes to me. I mean it. (I will also offer $10,000 for the Lord of the Rings franchise).

2) More Glau. Hey. There’s a reason they’re called “Summer” movies.

3) Can you say… musical? Well don’t. Even I know that’s an awful idea.

4) Christian Bale’s John Connor will get a throat lozenge. This will also help his Batwork (ten grand for that franchise too, btw.)

5) More porn. John Connor never told Kyle Reese this, but his main objective in going to the past was to get some. What if there’s a lot of future-babies that have to be made? Cue wah-wah pedal guitar — and dollar signs!

6) The movies will stop getting less cool.

Okay. There’s more — this brain don’t quit! (though it has occasionally been fired) — but I think you get my drift. I really believe the Terminator franchise has only begun to plumb the depths of questioning the human condition during awesome stunts, and I’d like to shepherd it through the next phase. The money is there, but more importantly, the heart is there. But more importantly, money. Think about it. End this bloody bidding war before it begins, and put the Terminator in the hands of someone who watched the first one more than any other movie in college, including “Song of Norway” (no current franchise offer).

Sincerely, Joss Whedon.

Imagine if Joss got the rights. What do you think he would do with the Terminator?
