James Cameron isn't done with Terminator - apparently. Hot off the heels of Avatar 2: The Way of Water's release, Cameron has been vetting questions about his return to other iconic sci-fi franchises he helped define over the decades and of course, The Terminator was one of those inquiries.

Speaking to the SmartLess Podcast, James Cameron revealed that he's currently in talks about returning to create another Terminator film but that if he was to do so - the story would focus less on "bad robots gone crazy" and more so on the implications of Artificial Intelligence:

If I were to do another ‘Terminator’ film and maybe try to launch that franchise again, which is in discussion, but nothing has been decided, I would make it much more about the AI side of it than bad robots gone crazy.

Every attempt to reboot the Terminator franchise since Cameron's departure has been a critic and commercial failure, with every new installment seemingly worse than the last. Terminator: Dark Fate lost Studios over $120 million at the box office and essentially shelved any plans for more films indefinitely.

Time will tell if James Cameron can revive his Terminator franchise back to its glory - but will a lack of bad robots gone crazy take away from the allure? Let us know what you think in the comments!

No matter how it comes out, I will wait and see.

Maybe, if they'll get it right, but perhaps it's time to end the franchise? I'm sceptical to anything AI since Covenant was taken over by the AI and went downhill.
