Two big new Terminator 7 stories arrived the same day, delivered by, none other than, the questionable news outlet ‘We Got This Covered‘. The fact that this news is delivered by that platform removes nearly all of the weight and excitement from the information, but even if the news was delivered by a reputable source; we aren’t so sure that it would make any difference, in terms of excitement for more Terminator movies.
The news comes again, via what seems to be resident ‘insider’ of We Got This Covered, Daniel ‘hope it sticks’ Richtman.
The first news from We Got This Covered on the subject of Terminator 7 was that the new Terminator movie is going to be more of a ‘horror‘ movie:
“Daniel Richtman is now reporting that the next Terminator project will be more of a straightforward horror movie than the mega budget action blockbusters that have characterized the series for almost 30 years.”We Got This Covered
Daniel Richtman also claims Arnold has signed on for Terminator 7:
“… reporting that Schwarzenegger is signed on for at least one of them, although he doesn’t offer any further details.”We Got This Covered
So let’s get this straight, the first claim is news that many Terminator Fans have been crying out for for many years – a return to the roots and a back to basics approach. Though this has always seemingly fallen on deaf ears, with the studios piling damage upon damage, helping to diminish the once great franchise.
If the franchise isn’t working as PG-13, then eventually it would go without saying that a darker approach should at least be seriously considered.
What does that even mean?! Arnold is always f*cking back (he was even supposed to return for Terminator Salvation, remember?).
During the promotion for Terminator: Dark Fate, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke of the possibility of returning once more (after the sixth movie), telling The Inquirer that:
“It’s impossible to say today because every single time, I die in a ‘Terminator’ movie. And somehow, they always figure out how to bring me back. So, I have no idea. It’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve played,”Arnold Schwarzenegger told The Inquirer
Paramount have a Terminator: Dark Fate continuation TV Series planned and it’s coming to Hulu, sans Schwarzenegger.
James Cameron wants to make, and oversee, Terminator 7 as a future war movie.
Robert Patrick is back as a new T-1000.
Margot Robbie and John Cena are being eyed to bring fresh blood to the Terminator series.
Paramount Pictures want Terminator 7 to be PG-13 but James Cameron wants to keep it Rated R.
Arnold is signed back on, and Terminator 7 will be closer to a horror movie.
The problem here is that We Got This Covered and Daniel Richtman seem to be all over the place with their ‘information’, which, to be honest, seems to be based on trend-following, simplified guesswork – and oh, what fans have made abundantly clear for a long time that they want.
The studios could plan to do all of the above, but we find it doubtful that they would greenlight multiple movies and a TV show all at once; this might happen for something like Batman at DC, or the Avengers at Marvel, but it is questionable that the current dead-horse Terminator franchise would validate such a high investment, that is of course unless Skydance‘s David Ellison has a sheer hunger to burn giants wads of money (though maybe entertainment’s a little thin on the ground at the top at the moment… ?) – though, still, it’s highly doubtful.
Most people would be happy to call this trash news or clickbait, but at any time, the studios could validate any or all the information if they wanted to; simply by doing it.
The real question is…
If 1/100 things Daniel Richtman or We Got This Covered says comes to fruition, does that actually make them reliable / credible sources… ?
