The pre-boot Terminator: Genisys was supposed to kickstart a brand-new trilogy of films, along with a new spinoff TV series. Instead, it was just mostly terrible. Now it looks like even the film’s star has given up hope for a followup.
After the film underperformed at the box office and was pretty much butchered by critics, word broke that the narrative plan for sequels was being adjusted. Not long after that, it was reported that the sequels had been axed. Well, now star Emilia Clarke (the Game of Thrones alum who played the new Sarah Connor) has chimed in. Her take on the future of the franchise is blunt — and pretty funny.
When asked by Coming Soon if she’d be back for more Terminator, here is what she said:
“No. Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh. But I have some very different roles coming up.”
Well, it doesn’t get much more clear than that. Sure, there will probably be more Terminator films at some point, but it looks like the Genisys effort is all but dead. Which is probably for the best, because again, it wasn’t very good. Can't we just bring back Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles? Please?
What would you like to see next for the Terminator franchise?
