"The Terminator" Will Be Back...

According to reports, feature film rights for subsequent sequels of writer/director James Cameron's "THE TERMINATOR" franchise have been purchased by the Halcyon Co.

Halcyon's Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson, acquired the right to produce "Terminator" films, future merchandising and licensing ventures.

"Terminator 4," has a script by "T3" writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris. Moritz Borman, former CEO of Intermedia Films and exec producer of "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," will produce. Kubicek and Anderson will co-produce. Former PolyGram Films marketing president Peter D. Graves will be executive producer and oversee marketing.

"Terminator 4" is being scheduled for a summer 2009 release.

The new backers see "T4" as an attempt to reinvent the franchise with new cast and plotlines, with a screenplay picking up with 'John Connor', leading what's left of the human race against the machines.
