So, according to this article at ComingSoon, the Terminator franchise rights may be up for sale soon.
The Los Angeles Times has a lengthy and extensive report on the status of Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek’s Halcyon Holdings, who bought the rights to the “Terminator” franchise for $25 million in 2007 in order to produce this summer’s Terminator Salvation, but who have now hired the financial advisory firm FTI Capital Advisors to look into their options, having filed for bankruptcy. The thought is that the sale of the rights to the franchise could help make the production company solvent again.
What does this mean? More than likely, McG’s proposed fifth entry in the franchise probably won’t happen. In addition, it also means that we here at Ideology of Madness can buy the rights and make our own Terminator movie! Wonder if they take American Express….
Ideally, what should happen is that Lightstorm (James Cameron’s production company) should quick messing around and buy the rights. Isn’t that what we all want?
