Am I the only one that really hopes that Josh Friedman picks it up again so they can kickstart The Sarah Connor Chronicles again?

It would be nice if James Cameron could re-acquire the rights (he did create it afterall). A new sequel written by the man himself (ignoring all guises after T2 as being non-canon) would surely be box office fodder!

James Cameron never owned the rights for Terminator, he sold it for a dollar to Gale Anne Hurd in 1983.

You can't sell what you don't own...$1 or not (by your own admission, he owned it)

Hardly a surprise given how indescribably awful Salvation was. Seriously if I ever meet McG in the street...

I heard that T4 Salvation was not that good but my DVD (& T:SCC s2) is on it's way, so I will study it carefully (without too much sound effects) and decide for myself.

I have said this before but I will say it again, I do our local euromillions and the jackpot has risen to amazing 125m - yes that much
Have a go yourself and we will buy all the actors - in fact everything (USD 205,613,750)

Apart from that, I love T:SCC more than anything else, whoever buys it will be my friend for life.

T4 was a letdown within itself. It started well but ran out of steam and died a horrible death - the "climactic" battle scene was non-existent. Looked as though the budget and original thought ran out half way through. It also didn't really pave a way for a further instalment so after the lacklustre 3rd and 4th attempts, another franchise bites the dust....

I quite enjoyed Terminator Salvation at the cinema and plan to give it a 2nd viewing very soon on DVD. It surprises even me to say - but I'd prefer McG and the creative team who were on that continue rather than more new blood.

James Cameron should buy the rights and give us the kick-ass finale to the series that everyone wants, just like Ridley Scott is returning to the Alien franchise. McG was never the right director for Terminator. Come on JC, give us the future war prequel we've been dying to see since 1984!

I dont think it will be to long before some one snaps up the rights, theres at least another couple of movies left in the franchise, hopefully they'll pick up where Salvation left off. Personally, i enjoyed McG's effort quite a bit, it wasn't spectacular but it was just a pretty decent "popcorn" action movie, one that i couldn't really find any major faults with.

So can we assume that anyone rumoured to have signed on for the next films (Bale, McG et al) are no longer officially involved?  That'd be a good thing in my opinion. 

If I bought the franchise, I'd bring back the Sarah Connor Chronicles instead of making more films.  I think the film series has been ruined with parts 3 and 4 and I can't see a way that it can be revived successfully without a reboot - which I don't want either.  I'll discard Cameron's return because I just can't see it happening.
I'd probably want to make my money from a series of Terminator video games in the style of Call of Duty and Comand and Conquer.     

What would you do with the franchise??

This idea worries me because I hated all those stupid vampire clips in Buffy. The computer imaging made them look like something from a silly horror movie and if they disappeared when she zapped them, exactly how dangerous were they.
We want to keep T:SCC in it's original format without stupid computer graphics (apart from liquid metal of course).
it could quite easily be turned in to a joke.

I enjoyed Salvation. I think it brought back my interest in the franchise (I never enjoyed the Sarah Connor Chronicles and thought it was overrated. Get over it). But I don't see why the rights are being sold again. McG and co should hold onto the. Salvation was proof McG was a victim of bad source material with Charlie's Angels and selling the rights to Terminator again just seems like overkill.

Having said that, if someone buys it, I hope Joss Whedon never gets his grubby geekcore hands on it.

Is that all he's bidding?

Frak, maybe I should use my award money and buy the Terminator rights.

I think it's pretty clear he's knocking the whole situation, rather than a real bid.  Mind you if it really were to be available for 6000.  We should freakin' buy it!
