The years haven't been kind to the Terminator franchise, after that whole Terminator Salvation debacle. Fortunately for Skynet fans, Gale Anne Hurd, the executive producer and a cowriter of The Terminator, recently expressed interest in reviving the franchise.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hurd, who's presently an executive producer on The Walking Dead, gave this loaded statement in response to the death of the Terminator franchise:
"It's very sad," says Hurd of the franchise's recent history. "You feel like you gave birth to something and it's been adopted and those adoptions haven't worked out. Of course I'd be interested in doing another one. I'd love it."
Of course, she's talking about Terminator Salvation and its financial troubles, which crushed the production company Halcyon (thus requiring them to cede the Terminator rights to Pacificor). But perhaps Hurd too is frustrated with the crap storylines Hollywood has foisted upon our beloved Terminators. It's time to give this movie back to the ones that helped make it great. Sure, the Terminator franchise might still need a little breathing room, but we'd be overjoyed to have someone who was there from the beginning (and clearly understands good entertainment) working to bring Skynet back online.
