McG planning on two more Terminators

The director still up for more


Terminator Salvation director McG is apparently still planning on directing the fifth and sixth Terminator movies.

Following on from this summer's underperforming Salvation, McG has apparently claimed via a Blu-Ray live commentary that he'll be completing his trilogy.

Despite the fact that Halcyon are looking to sell the franchise, the Charlie's Angels director believes that he is still attached to direct two more.

McG has said he is keen to bring back Sarah Connor, so if he does return to the franchise expect more typically warped timelines.

It'll be interesting to see how this optimism fares if the franchise is sold on to a new studio.

      Granted, he's no Cameron, but I thought he did a pretty decent job of Salvation.

      Got to watch this movie over the weekend. Although the effects were fine, the movie lacked any sort of suspense, drama or personality. McG will suck the life out of this franchise. Who actually thought anything could be worse than T3.

      Decent job!! It was one of the most idiotic and banal films i've seen in years. He managed to keep the camera still I suppose, which is about the only good thing I can think to say about it.

      Salvation was fine people need to watch it without comparing it to Cameron's Terminators.

      Actually Ali your absolutly right there wasnt anything really wrong with Salvation and i think ppl need to be opened minded to this movie as its leagues ahead of rise of the machines and anybody that feels different seriously has a prob with McG, i thought it stayed very true to the originals whilst referencing the first 2 movies well and if we're gonna talk quality instead of quantity then Salvation was also leagues ahaed of many of this years movies...including, transformers, angels n demons, wolverine, fast and furious bring it on Mcg im looking forward to the next two movies, and more Bale as connor!!!!!!

      I'll be looking forward to it. I love the Terminator universe. I can even tolerate T3 as it's so bad it's funny. Salvation did 'salvage' the series from the atrocity that preceded it and seeing as even Arnie himself is looking into buying the rights then we should expect a fair bit should that come to fruition.

      salvation was average at best, despite decent trailers the film still did not do that well which I feel maybe down to overkill, what with the tv series which was out and about at the same time. Due to salvation and rise of the machines both being average I think the franchise needs to be left alone for 20 years or so and resurrected at that point.Any new follow ups will not do well....they've lost alot of the audience that would just turn up because it's a Terminator film

      Very sad news - unless McG decides to learn how to direct a REAL action franchise sometime soon, and get a scriptwriter to make some decent characters. Say what you like about people that didn't like 'Salvation' - I thought it was very weak and I can't believe it has as many fans as it actually does.

      i thought salvation was good until the whole finale with HB carter and yet another fight in steelworks/factory, they should of concentrated on the time travel angle how it all came together and have a rebel traitor reveal to be...Robert Patrick

      When I left the cinema I thought 'Haaaa, he didn't (curse word) it up as much as I thought he would.' Everything was fine except the plot. He completely ignored the timeline, thus ruining the film in a completely different way than I expected. I should applaud him really, for keeping at least that fresh.

      This film was kak in so many ways: Christian Bales terrible acting, Setting 3 quarters of it on desert roads (where the hell were all the machines?!), helena bonham carter as the face of skynet, a rubbish CGI Arnie, and virtually no plot.

      Of course you should compare Salvation to the previous 3 Terminators! T3 was poor, but Salvation (whilst a so-so actioner) reduces the franchise to Transformers meets Mad Max. This vision of the future is not the one depicted by Cameron, there's very little menace or threat (which is what made the first 2 films brilliant)... Its expensive, soul-less tosh made for kids.

      i think salvation was a pretty good film. It's different. McG is no awesome director, but he didn't ruin the franchise.In my opinion.
