We’re inundated with reboots, but if there’s a franchise that could actually use one, it’s Terminator.  The idea of killer robots bringing on the apocalypse is an evergreen concept (we’re going to see it later this year in The World’s End), but the current trajectory of the franchise has run out of steam.  Terminator Salvation was a dud, but now we’re soldiering on with Terminator 5Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to return, and since that was the case, fans hoped it would be as a human character (somehow not Sergeant Candy) because why would Skynet churn out old, saggy terminators?  However, Schwarzenegger has revealed that he will indeed be the Terminator in the fifth installment, and shooting is set to begin in January.

Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier to Pen New TERMINATOR Movie

by     Posted 1 year, 92 days ago

terminator-5

The new Terminator film has taken another step forward closer to production.  Last month we learned that Megan Ellison’s brother, David Ellison, had come aboard the project to co-produce the next installment of the franchise through his Skydance Pictures banner alongside Megan’s Annapurna Pictures, and now the producers have tapped a couple of writers to start work on the script.  Deadline reports that Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will write the script for the new Terminator film, though further details are understandably being kept under wraps.

Kalogridis previously penned the scripts for Shutter Island and Alexander, as well as the pilot for the TV series Bionic Woman.  Lussier, meanwhile, was responsible for writing 2011’s Drive Angry and received a “story by” credit on Dracula 2000, which he also directed.  As I mentioned, we know next to nothing about where this new Terminator stands in relation to the previous films, but Megan Ellison has confirmed that it will indeed be rated R.  With screenwriters now firmly onboard, expect to hear more news regarding the next Terminator sooner rather than later.

Hit the jump for more on the original series, which centers on “a skilled gunman and widowed Civil War hero (Chuck Connors) who moves to uncharted New Mexico territory to raise his young son and gets recruited by the sheriff to help protect the unruly town.”

DRIVE ANGRY Blu-ray Review

There is an art to camp.  It’s not enough to simply have the director wink to the audience and say “Yeah, we know this is terrible, but we’re having dumb fun so laugh god-dammit.“  Just because you’re making something trashy, doesn’t mean you have the license to give up quality filmmaking.  Director Patrick Lussier understands the difference between trashy filmmaking and trashy fun and that’s the reason his film Drive Angry is such a delight.  The script is unapologetically dumb, everything is cranked up to 11, and while everyone is clearly having a good time, no one is slacking off.  That’s the art to Drive Angry and it’s why it will likely build a devoted cult following in the years to come.

Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard Video Interview DRIVE ANGRY 3D slice

With Patrick Lussier’s (My Bloody Valentine 3D) revenge thriller Drive Angry 3D getting released this weekend, I was able to interview most of the cast earlier today.  Since we’ve been covering the film since its inception, most of you know it’s about a felon (Nicolas Cage) who is chasing the people who killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby. The vendetta/rescue spins out of control and the chase gets bloodier by the mile, leaving bodies everywhere.  Along for the ride are Amber Heard, Billy Burke, David Morse and William Fichtner (who just about steals the movie as a character called “the accountant”).

During my interview with Cage and Heard, we talked about how the finished film compared to what they thought it would be when they signed on, working with the 3D cameras, the action scenes, and Heard told me about her Playboy TV pilot and Cage talked about what fans can look forward to in the Ghost Rider sequel called Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.  Hit the jump to watch:

With director Patrick Lussier’s (My Bloody Valentine) 3D revenge flick Drive Angry 3D getting released February 25, Summit has released a very cool motion poster to help promote the flick. Starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, William Fichtner, Billy Burke, and David Morse, Drive Angry 3D is about a tough as nails criminal (Cage) who breaks out of Hell on a quest for redemption. Fichtner plays a character simply named “The Accountant”, a mysterious demonic agent sent to retrieve Cage and return him to the fiery depths from which he came.  I did a set visit last year and everything I learned while there tells me this is going to be an extremely fun ride that you’re going to want to take.

The film stars Cage, Amber Heard (Zombieland), David Morse (Disturbia) and William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down).

Breaking out of the direct-to-video dungeon can be a difficult, if not insurmountable task, but Patrick Lussier has done just that. Originally a successful editor working on many of Wes Craven’s films, Lussier began his directorial career helming sequels to Dracula 2000. He followed those up with White Noise 2: The Light. But when given creative control, he turned out 2009’s spectacularly fun 3D gorefest, My Bloody Valentine 3D. Now he’s working with Nicolas Cage, William Fichtner, and David Morse on Drive Angry, a film that looks to be his best yet judging from the fairly spectacular Comic-Con reel.

Read on for our one-on-one interview where he talks about demons, muscle cars, shooting Nic Cage in the face, and getting co-writer Todd Farmer naked and dead, for the second time in a row.
