Variety reports that Halcyon has bought the rights to the Terminator franchise, allowing the privately funded company to continue burying the series without even the interference of pesky series star Arnold Schwarzenegger. T3 writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris have already written part four, presenting a John Connor in his 30s leading man's revolt against the machines, and say the chapter leads into a full second trilogy... unless I send an intelligent robot--a learning computer, if you will--into the past to stop this deal before it happens!
But let's not count on that. I'm not even sure it's entirely possible. More likely, we'll see three more terrible Terminator movies.
