Deadpool Director Tim Miller in Early Talks to Helm Terminator Reboot for James Cameron

Head up a reboot that may be helmed by Deadpool director Tim Miller, James Cameron will regain the rights to The Terminator in 2019.

Cameron is in early talks with Miller to direct the project, with the rights to The Terminator reverting back to its creator 35 years after the original film’s debut in 1984.

After co-financing the Alan Taylor-directed Terminator Genisys, Skydance Media CEO David Ellison is investing in “an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively.”

Following the release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron hasn’t been involved in the beloved sci-fi action series. Since then, the franchise has received a television series and three additional movies, including the aforementioned Genisys, which released in 2015 to lukewarm reception from critics.

Early last year, Paramount Pictures removed its planned Terminator Genisys sequel from its release schedule, which was originally slated to hit theaters this coming May. A few months later, Emilia Clarke confirmed she won’t reprise her role as Sarah Connor in another Terminator movie.
