TERMINATOR Rights SOLD For $29.5 Million

February 10, 2010

TERMINATOR franchise rights auctioned off for $29.5 million


Source: Deadline.com

Halcyon Holding Corp accepted the $29.5 million bid from, of all parties, the debtholder which pushed it into bankruptcy, Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor.

Lionsgate and Sony were the major players in the bidding war with Pacificor (which isn’t even a movie studio) and are currently negotiating with Pacificor for the go-ahead to develop any future movies.

No word just yet on whether or not this means Christian Bale will return (although it seems unlikely) in what was planned as the first of a trilogy storyline that began with TERMINATOR: SALVATION.

TERMINATOR Franchise Rights To Hit The Auction Block

TERMINATOR franchise rights up for auction


Source: Financial Times

Safe to say that ‘TERMINATOR: SALVATION’ didn’t perform as well as expected?

Rights to the Terminator franchise will be auctioned this month which will allow the highest bidder:

“…the ability to make new Terminator films, TV programmes and other spin-offs that build on the popularity of the franchise.”

Read more HERE.

By comparison, The rights for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (which was also recently auctioned off) nabbed $60 million so it’s probably a good bet Terminator rights will go for a much higher amount.

No word on how this might effect Christian Bale’s already reported 3 movie deal for the new Terminator trilogy they had been working on. Seems unlikely he would return but that doesn’t mean his contract couldn’t be included in the purchase (or does it?).

‘TERMINATOR’ Franchise Update: Sequels In Doubt? BALE – “No Talks Or Discussions” Since Lukewarm Box Office Response of SALVATION

June 29, 2009

CHRISTIAN BALE And SAM WORTHINGTON Face Off In 'TERMINATOR SALVATION'

SCI FI WIRE is noting that:

“expected anouncements of Terminators 5 and 6 have not come. Yet.”

Also:

Bale, who played a grown-up John Connor, confirmed that there has been no development on his end for a fifth Terminator.

“We’ve had no talks about it or discussions about it.”

Terminator Salvation took place in 2018, when Connor takes the lead in the human resistance while trying to come to terms with a new kind of cyborg who believes he is human. The film’s epilogue suggests that Connor will continue to lead the resistance in other parts of the world after destroying Skynet’s San Francisco headquarters.

They might be right. Seems like the studios have been hot to get a lot of the news re: sequels out a la Transformers, Deadpool, etc. but things have been a little quiet since ‘Terminator: Salvation’ hit theaters…

‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ Update: New Interview With CHRISTIAN BALE

CHRISTIAN BALE on becoming involved with the Terminator franchise:

“I felt like the [Terminator] franchise was done… …I didn’t have an interest. Then I [heard an] idea that really was something good that could be told here. If that was going to happen then absolutely, I wanted to be on board.”

On his reaction to the final cut:

“This isn’t a movie that you sit down and watch as a personal 2AM viewing. It’s not something in which you sort of gaze into the human soul and speak to you that way. It’s a movie that’s meant to be watched with a lot of different people and get that common energy. Movies like this are much like sports. It’s that feeling of a common excitement throughout the theater.”

‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ Update: Extensive Interview With SAM WORTHINGTON

SAM WORTHINGTON on being a fan of the TERMINATOR movies:

“I reacquainted myself with it before we shot. I was maybe 14 or 15 when the second one came out, so I remember the liquid man because it was pretty revolutionary.”

On working with CHRISTIAN BALE:

“I find Christian extremely passionate and dedicated. People call him intense. I hate that f*ckin’ word. I hate it! He turns up, does his job, and it’s all about the story and the character. To work with a guy like that is actually a privilege.”

On his character in ‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’:

“…here’s a guy who wanted to die for his sins and the irony is that he wakes up and he can’t die. He’s stuck and his penance is to suffer, until he transforms and becomes a better human being.”

New Interview With ‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ Director McG

If you’re as excited as we are about the upcoming ‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ movie then you are definitely going to want to check out a new interview with director McG.

McG on taking on the Terminator franchise:

“I wanted to be respectful and tell [original Terminator director] Jim [Cameron] that I intended to honor what he put into motion. And I believed him when he told me that he finished telling the story at the end of the second film. So I brought it to him that the story was still worth exploring because [Terminator Salvation] was about the future war between the machines and humanity.”

On what to expect from a followup sequel to Terminator Salvation:

“I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011. John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion.”

In addition to a load of more details on the above topics, McG also chats it up over why he chose Christian Bale as John Connor and his preference for practical special effects over CGI.
