McG still making Terminator 5 & 6


7th December 2009

For the love of God, somebody stop him.

While recording the BD-Live Blu-ray commentary for Terminator Salvation last night, director McG let slip that he is still working on plans to make another two Terminator movies. Somebody send James Cameron back to kill his mother. It's the only way to be sure.

The Terminator franchise is all over the place at the moment. Salvation was a big, shouty, spazzy mess. Now no one wants to buy the rights to the franchise. The best Terminator project in years, TV series The Sarah Connor Chronicles, was cancelled after two series. I'd literally rather sit through two hours of Michael Bay underwear adverts than another McG Terminator movie.

McG always said that Salvation was to be the start of a new Terminator trilogy, which was exciting news back when it looked good in the trailers, but now sounds more like a threat. Allegedly, he's looking to bring back Sarah Connor for Terminator 5 (despite her being dead - hooray for time travel) and wants to set it in - get this - modern day London and pit the military against the machines. Sweet Jesus, can we have Charlie's Angels 3 instead?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: every new Terminator movie that's made where the supposedly all-powerful killer robots from the future fail to wipe out humanity makes them look like useless twats. Note to Skynet: you have the power of time travel. Go back to 1778 and drop a nuclear bomb on Sarah Connor's ancestors. Humanity extinguished. Take the weekend off, you've earned it.
