The best choice is let it rest in peace. Or, if they have balls, try another reboot but R rated. Making a sequel of the flop that was the last movie will be a huge mistake.

The New York Daily News reports that both that a Terminator 6—presumably, a hypothetical followup to Terminator: Genisys—has been scrapped for good. Also, in a future where the Terminator franchise would continue beyond this, original star Arnold Schwarzenegger would not be back. This isn’t too surprising to hear, of course—we’d already heard that Genisys star Emilia Clarke would not return for future movies, and Paramount actually already pulled the sequel to the film off schedules last year.

But interestingly, this report doesn’t make mention of the recent rumors that James Cameron and Deadpool director Tim Miller plan to sweep in and save the franchise from doom with a film that is allegedly a “reboot and conclusion” to the series, somehow. It does, however, mention that there’s still hope an “independent company” could come to Paramount and revive the series, so maybe the future isn’t quite as grim for Terminator as it currently sounds
let this die

:lol: definitely

such a pity Cameron never made the third film, set in the future to terminate the storyline, would've been pretty nice if he did

Titanic and Avatar director James Cameron hoping to make new Terminator trilogy
HE said he’d be back and he meant it — director James Cameron wants to make another three Terminator movies.
The master director, behind the two highest grossing movies of all time in Avatar and Titanic, says he is looking to “reinvent” the big-budget sci-fi franchise that put him on the map in 1984. His original Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a murderous cyborg sent from the future was made for a modest US$6million and went on to make US$78 million and became a cult classic.

But now, ahead of 3D theatre re-release of T2 next month, Cameron says he is in negotiations to oversee a new “three-film arc” if the ongoing issues with the rights to the franchise can be resolved. The rights to make the films have changed several times since the release of the first film, but under US copyright law some rights will revert to Cameron in 2019. Schwarzenegger would be involved “to some extent” in the proposed trilogy but the plan would be to introduce new characters to “pass the baton”.

“The question is — has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up?,” says Cameron. “Can it still have relevance now where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films. We live in a world of predator drones and surveillance and big data and emergent AI (artificial intelligence).

“So I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise and the rights in the US market revert to me under US copyright law in a year and a half so he and I are talking about what we can do. Right now we are leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it.”

“We’ll put more meat on the bones if we get past the next couple of hurdles as and when we announce that.”

Cameron has been circumspect about the films made since his departure, Rise Of the Machines (2003), Salvation (2009) and Genisys, but has tempered his criticism out of respect for his long-time friend Schwarzenegger, who has appeared in all of them.

“I think it’s fairly widely known that I don’t have a lot of respect for the films that were made later,” Cameron says. “I was supportive at the time in each case for Arnold’s sake because he is a close friend. He has been a mate of mine since 33 years ago so I was always supportive and never too negative. But they didn’t work for me for various reasons.”

They're gonna reboot it for sure.

Terminator 2021... directed by J.J.Abrams.

Meanwhile, local distributor still hasn't answered if T2 3D is going to play round these parts.

If this is a sequel to Genisys, I'm out. If this is a new reboot, I might be mildly interested, depending on the direction they choose.
