I would think we’ve all had enough Terminator films, comics, and television shows, but apparently Warner Bros. thinks otherwise, as they prepare to relaunch the Terminator franchise.

Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins is an attempt to “reinvent the cyborg saga” that will be told over three films being written by John Brancato and Michael Ferris.

The producers said that the new film will carry the size and scale of “Terminator 3,” and will have an event-sized budget. It will likely be less than the $200 million pricetag of “Terminator 3,” which was saddled with extravagant costs that included above the line payouts, rights payments and heavy fees incurred through a complex financial structure.

The film will be set in the future featuring the full-scale war between Skynet ad humankind.

Interesting, because I went to Universal Studios and sat through a live action/3d show that featured the same thing…

Terminator Salvation is set to arrive in Summer 2009.

    That name is totally teh ghey. I love Terminator & T2 as any red blooded American male … but after enduring T3 I figured this franchise was dead. The most interesting part of T3 was the last 10 minutes, with the long teased nuclear holocaust. With McG directing (as rumored) we can be guaranteed some Cameron Diaz ass shots.

    Hey Stephen, sounds like you saved 6 hours and $20 if you’ve already got the story.
