‘Terminator’ series may be rebooted by Universal

Studio plan to place Justin Lin at the helm

Universal are reportedly planning to reboot The Terminator film series.

Last year the rights to the Terminator franchise, which were long in contention, were sold to the Pacificor company.

Now Deadline.com reports that Universal are looking to approach the company about resurrecting the franchise with The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift director Justin Lin at the helm.

Before the sale to Pacificor, director McG, who helmed 2009’s poorly received Terminator Salvation, claimed that the plan was to create a new trilogy of Terminator films. It seems there is now no future for those films.

Under the new plan Lin would reportedly be working on script treatments by James Cameron – director of 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day – along with screenwriter William Wisher.
