‘Terminator 3000’ Coming from Hannover House and Red Bear Entertainment

The Terminator comes back as animated feature Hannover House has announced that it is teaming with Vancouver-based Red Bear Entertainment to develop Terminator 3000, a $70-million dollar budgeted, 3D animated feature film based on the characters and situations introduced in the original Terminator.

The story details for Terminator 3000 are being kept under close wraps, but the writers and production team have a stated goal of minimizing violence in order to obtain a PG-13 level of material.

Hemdale produced and distributed director James Cameron's original Terminator feature, but released the sequel rights in 1990 to Carolco, which later transferred the rights to ultimately end up under the control of Halcyon Media. Santa Barbara based Pacificor, LLC prevailed in the most recent auction and transfer of rights to the franchise in January, and retains approval and licensing authority over the proposed Terminator 3000 project.

Hannover House and Red Bear Entertainment will release details of the production timing, financing and principal production personnel later this year, in advance of a proposed January, 2011 start.

    I hate to ruin someones day but Robocop is being rebooted.

    70 million is a high price for this, but fear not this hasn't been approved so it may not happen.

      this is what i dont understand....robocop was a very violent film and it was a major hit at the theatres with a r rateing, the first terminator had an r rateing and look where it went a bunch of sequels it did very well too, so i think a movie with a excellent story that keeps the peoples attention they tend to look pass the violence,or sex or what ever gave it that rateing, or is it the rateings board that is strongarming the movie producers to tone the stuff down, hey just a thought.....because there was a time awhile back where rob zombie,eli roth and a couple others that were getting a lot of hell from the movie rateings board telling them to tone down their movies....or maybe they should get some really good writers...

        It's true, they can get away with a lot more stuff in PG-13 films these days. But this just doesn't cut it. Sure Terminator Salvation was PG-13, and I liked it, but c'mon ... if you're gonna make this animated, at least make it gritty.

            As for this, I think for an animated film to work, it has to be an R-rating to balance out the fact that it's animated. We'll see...but I won't hold my breath.

              @Err: Totally agree. The Bale/Arnie fight was awesome on the big screen when I first saw it. I mean, the film doesn't stack up to multiple viewings, but it's still decent.

                The franchise is dead. That is all.

                  PG-13 will hurt this for sure but I'll watch it.

                      I think people should see what it'll be like first before judging. Yes the pg-13 thing sucks but as long as the story doesn't suck then we might see something good. Violence doesn't make a movie good. Story does. T-3 had tons of violence but imo wasn't as good as terminator salvation which was pg-13. Plus people know how to puch the limits of pg-13 nowadays.

                          I felt in salvation they introduced kyle reese too early, but all in all it was better than i originally thought

                                i liked salvation, i think it gets a bad rap but was a decent flick, especially that whole arnie vs bale thing at the end, that sh*t sent chills down my spine when i saw it in the theatre.

                                  Folks - don't forget that Salvation was PG-13.

                                  Oh, that explains a lot lol

Thats what always happens when it comes down to CG animation! don't know when we are gonna see a decent R-rated 3D animation movie... thats what I've always been waiting for for long time and seriously... I'm starting to lose all my hopes!!!

                                        @Ten13 You're right, I didn't really mean "hit", but it was far from a flop and it grossed pretty much.

                                        Anyways this will still flop, no PG-13 movie will make back a 70 mill dollar budget, and much less make a decent profit.

                                          I didn't mind Salvation. It certainly wasn't T1 or T2 but it was okay. It also wasn't PG!!! Gaaah!!
