NEW YORK, Mar 20: The “Terminator” franchise will no more expand and no further movies will be reportedly made.
Executives from Paramount studios have decided not to make another film, which starred actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in the titular role, reported New York Daily News.
“It is over for ‘The Terminator’ and Arnold. The studio has taken the sequel off the production slate completely, meaning there is no preproduction or any plans for another sequel. The talent had been offered long term deals, but this is not happening,” an insider said.
However, it is being said another company could buy the rights to the franchise but, given that Arnold turns 70 later this year, that is deemed unlikely.
“It would need an independent production company to think about making this, and asking Arnie back at age 70 to play that again may be a tough ask,” the source added.
Its last sequel, “Terminator Genisys” released in 2015. (PTI)
