Producer David Ellison Joins New TERMINATOR Film

Producer Megan Ellison has been plenty busy financing films like The Master, Killing Them Softly, and Zero Dark Thirty through her Annapurna Pictures banner, so you’d be forgiven for forgetting that she’s also the person behind the new Terminator film.  Ellison bought the rights to the franchise over a year ago with plans to move forward on a new movie, but after a few starts and stops, not much has come to fruition.  Per Deadline, she has now brought on her brother, David Ellison (True Grit, Star Trek Into Darkness), to be her financial and creative partner on the project as the rights deal for the franchise has now officially come to a close.

The film still has no script or studio attached, but David Ellison’s close relationship with Tom Cruise (he produced Ghost Protocol and Jack Reacher and is also producing M:I 5) has many wondering if Cruise might eventually be a part of the new Terminator film.  It’s frankly too early to start that kind of speculation, but I wouldn’t completely rule the notion out.  The Ellison siblings are now starting from scratch on the new Terminator as they set out to find a screenwriter to put on the project.

    About the Tom Cruise thing: I know many people will bitch about the posssibility, but I could see Cruise playing an older John Conner. I think itd be a pretty decent idea, especially since we’ve had three Johns already. If not Tom, try to bring back Christian Bale (which I doubt because of that rant fiasco). Either pick would be fine with me.

    Ok, make the future war movie we all have been wanting to see from what we saw in T1 and T2. Terminator Salvation didnt quite live up to that. Make it dark, have machines rolling over and crushing skulls, bring the laser guns and hordes of t-800s. Please!

      YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

      This is what I have always wanted. The last two films were pointless.
      Maybe they could get around them by using the time travel aspect to their advantage.

        I couldn’t agree with you guys more! I have to say that the interactive menu sequences on the special edition T2 blu ray are far more exciting in terms of the future war than T4 was.

    Stoopppppp! Pleaee stop making these movies! I’m not against sequels, remakes, or all that, but just stop it. These sequels are no good. Let it go.

    Tom Cruise should DEF play a new terminator! It makes so much sense!

  • ecto1a

    YES! Perfect!
    Let’s have Tom Cruise be the next John Connor or Terminator!
    Maybe this movie will come out same time as Ghostbusters 3 w/ Seth Rogan, Steve Corral, Paul Rudd, ect…
    And then we can have Indiana Jones 5 with Harrison in a wheel chair the same year….what else wouldn’t make any movie lover hang themself that year…..oh I know Prometheus 2 w/ HR Giger ideas skewed and deformed and we find out that Eliz Shaw is actually Ripley’s great grandmother!! ew, ew, and the summer hit that year will be Star Wars 7 w/ a Princess that let her self go and another Harrison Ford in a wheel chair! YES, we have the time and we lack the creative minds-lets make ALL of this happen. Nothing is sacred in cinema now, bring these all on ASAP! We will pay actual hard earned money for all of these great cinematic masterpieces!

    Tom Cruise as The Terminator? $20 says he goes back in time to hunt down Katie Holmes… you wouldn’t even need to budget this film, just have a camera sewn into Tom’s clothes, and edit. Movie Done

    As much as I’d prefer to see a future war movie that actually shows the Terminators/Kyle Reese being sent back in time, I’ll be shocked if this doesn’t turn out to be a full on reboot of the franchise.

    • Grimcicle

      Honestly, I think a reboot is what the franchise needs at this point.
