Cameron tells Ahnold why he should (or shouldn't) do next Terminator

When we think about the Terminator franchise, we immediately think about Ahnold's T-800 killing machine. Sure, we also think about Sarah Connor (the heart of the film) and her son John Connor; but mostly it's about how cool and badass the former Governator's time-traveling killer of a robot always was.

But should the next Terminator film be about him again? James Cameron thinks so.

While Cameron won't be involved in the next Terminator film—it's being shopped around by Schwarzenneger himself since Fast Five director Justin Lin dropped out of the project back in September—he had some advice to give to the former Governator.

"I was talking to him back in fall about a new Terminator film and quietly advising on that, I suppose you could say," Cameron told MTV.

The Titanic and Avatar director also told his friend Ahnold that he shouldn't do the fifth Terminator film unless it was about the T-800 model.

"I was trying to be as encouraging as possible. Frankly, at that time, I thought it needed to be more about him," Cameron said. "I told him he should not do it until it's focused on his character or he shouldn't do it. I think there are some great stories that can be told about that character that haven't even been thought of yet."

Do you guys agree with James Cameron? Do you want to see a fifth Terminator film focus on Arnold Schwarzenneger's awesomely cool T-800?
