James Cameron Reveals His Input into Terminator: Genisys

James Cameron recently spoke to Deadline about his feelings towards the Terminator franchise and his input into the upcoming fifth instalment; Terminator: Genisys.

Cameron is currently busy with the planning of the upcoming sequel to Avatar, due for a release in 2017.

Although Cameron isn’t directly involved in the production of Terminator: Genisys, the reboot starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney (Divergent) as Kyle Reese, he did provide producer David Ellison with some friendly advice on how to integrate a now 67 year old Arnold Schwarzenegger into the film.

He said:

"I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered."

Cameron then went on to highlight his feelings about the Terminator franchise since he handed over the reigns:

“It’s not my problem, that’s the beauty of it. It’s like being a grandparent and the kids come over then you can send them back. I think the chain’s been broken by the films in between. When I walked away from it I had to do it with the sense that I can’t invest in this emotionally anymore. If it’s not good, it doesn’t really bother me personally.”
