James Cameron has been busy filming Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5 for the foreseeable future, but apparently that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time for other projects. In particular, his second baby, the ‘Terminator’ series, doesn’t seem to let go of the director of three of the four highest-grossing films of all time: well he revealed that he had been working on “terminator 7” works.
It’s a revelation that comes with a sense of anticipation, as as recently as December 2022, Cameron had revealed he was mulling over a seventh ‘Terminator’ movie: “If I do another ‘Terminator’ movie and the franchise try to do it again, enliven what is currently being discussed but not yet decided, I would put my focus much more on the AI side and not portray them as evil robots,” Cameron said on the podcast at the time Actors Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett.
And that’s exactly how it happened. Because when James Cameron was recently a guest at the Dell Tech World trade show, he explained that there that he spent three months working on the screenplay for “Terminator 7” (this is definitely not the final title). So apparently he started writing just a few weeks after his podcast appearance.
At the same time, there is a big catch: as Rod Mercado, who attended the fair, wrote on Twitter: Cameron wants to wait and see how things develop with artificial intelligence before continuing to write. And that can of course take quite a while, because despite the hype around Chat GPT and Co. the subject is still in its infancy.
It will certainly be years before the social, political or economic effects of AI are really noticeable – and it may therefore take just as long for “Terminator 7” to progress. Especially since, as mentioned at the beginning, Cameron is still working on three “Avatar” movies, due to hit theaters in 2024, 2026, and 2028.
After all, it sounds like the “Terminator” series really is a bit of a departure from the previous formula, which would certainly not be a bad idea for many fans after the disappointing “Terminator: Salvation”, “Terminator: Genisys” and “Terminator: Dark Fate”. And Arnold Schwarzenegger wouldn’t be there either, after all he recently announced that he was done with the franchise:
