Halcyon Co. has purchased the rights to the Terminator franchise, and with that, comes news that there will be a Terminator 4.
A script has already been prepared by ‘T3‘ writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris, and the film has a tentative release date set for summer 2009.
“The Terminator franchise represents by far the most popular and successful franchise not owned by a major studio,” Kubicek said. “We see this global franchise as a cornerstone of Halcyon’s future business plans.”
“With ‘T3,’ we included many incidental details and plot points that, along with the main narrative, set the stage for an entirely new set of interrelated stories covering the future adventures of John Connor and the Terminators,” Borman said. “This new Terminator trilogy will build upon the already huge worldwide Terminator fan base.”
It seems like we’re certainly going to be seeing a lot in terms of Terminator in the coming years, not just on the big screen, but on television as well. FOX’s pilot The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which is based on characters from the franchise, is said to be in good position to be given a series order by the network.
